    Love the log cabin idea.
    Looks good.. am I seeing full dimension lumber?
    Definitely going to be solid.

    Looking forward to the progress pics.

    It is full dimensional lumber from the Amish. I do dialysis 3xs a week so getting this done may take a bit longer....

    Great score on the wood! [​IMG]
    You're off to a great start, I wouldn't worry about how long it takes to finish it.
    Including the research I've been working on mine for months and I'm still not finished.
