Looks like you milled your logs top and bottom? I did on mine. My long wall is thirty feet so I was dealing with logs thirty-six feet long all by myself. I used a gin pole to get the logs up. I used block and tackle which gave me that four to one advantage. I still had to enlist my tractor at times.

I've only used two sided logs on one building, ( not pictured) everything else has been full handscribed. Handling logs alone is a ton of work. The vast majority of the cabins I've built were in remote locations. I didnt have any motorized equipment except a boat, and sometimes a quad. Learned to use pulleys to get that advantage.

Yep, double block and tackle and gin gin poles can do a lot of work. Rigging is a mans best friend at all times.

I bought two sets of B&T off eBay and they are incredibly well made. Anodized housing and the rope is rated at something ridiculous like 10,000 pounds. I went with 100' of rope, should have gone with 200'.

What is the difference between a banya and a sauna? My dear wife is Finn, 100%, and wants me to build her a sauna next summer out of spruce.

Maybe some of you guys can help me find information on scribing and cutting saddle notches or dovetails when building either an octagonal or hexagonal log building like this one? I think I would prefer dovetails.
I basically want to duplicate it.

The logs were all cut very close to 20 inches...a bit challenging to make a curved wall. My wife helped with the joint pointing. Stripping wood was a pain because the ash trees were not cut at the proper time.

Man! That is absolutely gorgeous! I admire things that are built to last. That building fits the bill.

Get the book " building the alaskan log home." Best book on log building Ive ever seen. Everything you need to know is in it.

One of the fire places is deeper and inside the cabin. On the left side the chimney is external and the fire place is not as deep. The internal side heats the masonry and the thermal mass helps retain the heat even to a small degree upstairs.
The shallow fireplace with external/through the wall chimney was more for summer cooking and to keep it cooler.
At least that's my theory.

It needs some serious TLC some logs on the back are in bad shape.

I'm currently debating if I can afford to fix it and build on to the back put in septic and build a barn. Then I would move into it.

Since I'm not buying any of that ground that borders on the back of the farm it is a realistic possibility.

It would be nice it sits 300 yards back off the road and electricity is there and water will be before June.

Another large expense would be the gravel across the pasture .
