    Much better HH. I was just thinking the other day how long it's been since I've installed shakes. 20180127_160612[1].jpg I can't find Grace I&W Shield around here. They look at me like I'm nuts. This is the current deck repair I'm on and using Protecto Wrap. Not bad stuff. This wall has a 4'overhang on it but would like to avoid future rot if a little rubber helps. I figure while I was flashing the joint I'd quickly cover the crack between the joist and girder for a lil some extra. On a new deck I'm a proponent of covering the entire substructure with tar paper/IWS and extend the frame's life by a fair margin.

    I think the multi-angled roof on this cabin has a purpose. Log settle after they are built. It takes 5 years to fully settle. Lots of people refuse to build log gables because they are problematic. Mine is going to be stick framed. A log stacked gable settles and ends up with less pitch that it started out with, and the log ends will end up with a sawtooth pattern and huge voids where log ends meet roof. The multi-angled roof may have been designed to compensate and allow the top of the roof to settle more than the lower sides. Looks neat anyway.

    Hoarder, wrong thread probably, but what measures are taken to protect that bottom log from moisture/contact?

    Mainly roof overhang. People who are unfamiliar with log homes think overhang is measured from the outside walls to the drip edge. Actually it's measured from the ends of the logs to the drip line. For every 8 feet of elevation you need one foot of overhang minimum. Horizontal wood rots much faster than vertical wood! Also, the first course should be elevated at least 18" above ground to keep eave drips from splashing on it. Otherwise rain gutters are needed. There is a product to protect logs from rot called "Impel rods". They are pieces of borax/boric acid that fit in drilled passages and leach out borates when they get wet. Not really needed if designed correctly.
    The cabin below only has a couple inches of overhang and does not have the logs elevated, and to make things worse, the ridge purlin sticks out past the roofline. It will not last. tumblr_ox77txxpgv1qzwmsso1_1280.jpg

    Was pulling out pics for a proposal and came across some more pics from the cabin reno. Nice HEAVY stone sink we pulled from the metal shop and I plumbed in beneath the new window. This ols stone sink was at the metal shop when I worked there and 30 years ago was pulled out of a POND here in AR. Fell in love with his old desk too.

    Esalan , this place sits on the side of Hwy 1 near Big Sur...
    I went by it many times in the 60's but never stopped..
    We usually camped out at Lime Kiln Beach where we pitched tents , built leantos , and had bonfires on the beach with NO stinking permits!..

    A-frames and A-frame hybrids are pretty common in the woods here but they are all older now. I don't see them being built anymore.
    They look cool and shed snow well but wasted space and crappy insulation doesn't make them very practical for a home.

    I always equated them with them Skanderbamhoovia places where they ski for a living.

    My grandfather had a A-Frame lakehouse in Montana, they can be retro fitted with shed roofs on the sides to make them more functional. Whataburger used A-Frames in various configurations - here's one with the shed roof sides, the only pic I could find that explains it:
