Log Home Update: Part 35
Framing and Siding

We’re back to just four on the crew this week. Kyle left for Newfoundland, Canada to visit with his grandmother on Monday. He’ll be back in two weeks but will only be with us for two weeks before school starts again.

Jim and Adam worked as a team to complete the exterior trim out all the windows. Then they moved on to the log siding on the south gable and finished that Friday.

Don missed some time for his annual medical exam and a stress test. He passed all tests with flying colors. When he returned, he framed out the door to the utility room in the basement, installed a few more electrical outlets so we aren’t tied down to one location (or circuit), and then framed out the 2 x 6 wall that separates the master bedroom from the bath and stair well.

I framed out the closets in the master bedroom and also one of the walls of the master bathroom.

I am the sort of guy who loves to taste hot things. Currently I am building my personalized pv panels. I am doing it all by myself without the aid of my men. I'm utilizing the internet as the only way to acheive this. I ran across a very awesome website that explains how to build pv panels and wind generators. The web site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I'm not really sure about how precise the information given there is. If some guys over here who have xp with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the thread it will be awesome and I would extremely value it, cause I really lav solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. You people rock.

I do believe that sidings can add to your house's external beauty. Colors, textures, and styles are all elements that you can use to create an individual look for the outside of your house. Other factors to consider while buying siding products for your house are the maintenance required and the insulation benefits.
