Some of you folks likely built your own log cabin or maybe you bought one. I'd love to see some pics if you have any you're willing to post.

I've built 8 or 10 of 'em, every one a bit different. Accompanying photo is most recent that is my wife's she-shed that she and I put together together. No logs longer than 8' because USFS won't let me pull out anything longer under my firewood permit, thus lotta twists and turns. This one is only 192 square feet, but serves the purpose. I have a small sawmill, so the logs are two-sided. Foundation is actually cinder block, but faced with local rock that we pick up.

A couple years earlier, we put up a similar building that is our steam bath. The two sit side-by-side, pretty much.

Trapset -

No, man. Sorry. I might try for a couple tomorrow. Basically a short (4') built-in red cedar bench on one side, and an 8-foot built-in cedar bench on the other for laying down on. Building is only 7 X 10 feet, plus the porch. Riser benches for both seats that are stored under the main benches to get the bather up another foot into the really hot air. We use the banya (steam bath) twice weekly in the winter, but rarely in the summer. I would have a hard time living without a wood-fired steam bath house. This is the third one I've built (two others in Alaska).
