Quote from: beckhamk on April 23, 2011, 07:05:36 PMThanks for the info! Your truss mfg didnt say that the inside would be a 8/12? just curious as i just contacted one place and they told me they can do a scissor truss 12/12 for hte outside but the inside would be 8/12. I figure your inside is around the same.

Quote from: Osprey on April 26, 2011, 08:45:20 PMLooking good!I was looking at your kitchen layout. I played with the same idea of just having everything against one wall but it broke the countertop too much and also cut down on cabinet space available. I made the corner and placed the stove at the end wall. Gained a ton more storage space. My island is 5' with a 10" overhang for some counter stools.I am still moving the island around trying different combinations as it gets heavier and heavier here are a couple photos of what I have done in my 20X30's kitchen. I still have the crown molding and lighting to do. I plan on doing an update soon.https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/X3JhyOIP740mWB3HEmV-rVN8dSoq00fqWpA1_X8wD9w?feat=directlinkhttps://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/zzvhoUkdx7SmapPou6rJ4lN8dSoq00fqWpA1_X8wD9w?feat=directlinkHaving trouble posting photos

Quote from: Don_P on April 29, 2011, 08:14:43 PMCan't remember if... or maybe how many times, I might have mentioned it. We screwed on alot of log siding from the backside. We nailed the sheathing well and put two 1-5/8" screws alongside the stud from the inside into the back of the log siding. Few exposed fasteners and it pulled the siding up tight and held it there... something we often had trouble with.
Quote from: beckhamk on May 16, 2011, 08:28:23 PMlooking great..... when you started with the siding - did you put any cocking between the ends of each t&g board? or did you cock it afterwards? What are you planning to do with your gable end overhangs underneath?
Quote from: OlJarhead on May 16, 2011, 09:30:42 PMI love that siding! Always wonder if I could make it myself but think the cost in trees I'd have to cut down might be pretty crazy.
QuoteI'm not too sure what they used to make it machine wise
Quote from: Redoverfarm on May 29, 2011, 08:02:39 PMLooking good. Make sure that when you get to the point of completion that you put something to preserve the siding. Insects love raw wood.
Quote from: astidham on May 31, 2011, 04:33:00 PMThanks Redoverfarm, we are going to prime and paint it a wood like color...how long do you think it can stay raw?
