Getting The doors and windows roughed in and laying more courses of logs

We have Completed laying the first course of logs for the exterior walls as well as the interior walls. We have installed the buck at the door openings for the interior and exterior doors. On the second course we are cutting out for the electrical outlets above where we drilled through the logs for the wiring.

The cut out for electrical outlets.

It looks so good seeing logs on the floor. It is actually starting to look like a house and it’s exciting to see the lay out of the rooms and a little peek at what the house is going to look like.

Door and Window buck

On the 4th course of logs we are leaving the window openings and building the buck for the window openings. On the inside corners the logs are all cut the same length. We are using the butt and pass on the interior walls but we are not allowing for an overhang. We are cutting the logs flush to each other.
