This is a very interesting thread as I was able to see your family go through many changes and thank you for sharing that.I have recently acquired some property in WV (Hampshire County) on Branch Mountain and it has one of these hand hewn cabins on it, it looks like the shell of a cabin you have at the early parts of your thread. I have not given up hope of doing a cabin myself such as you have but it is a long process when my drive is 3 hrs one way. I am making progress and just got my 5th wheel camper set so I can cut my driving time down and increase my build time. Your thread is a great inspiration and if your close to Hampshire County I would welcome your input and advice. Your chinking recipe is how I found this site.Keith

Quote from: Don_P on February 27, 2014, 11:19:06 PMI started work on this springhouse today and thought you might enjoy it John. It's 10x20, the log pen is 10x12 and back in the day the 8x10 area over the spring was just an open roofed cover, pretty common here. There are several with a chimney and washpot facilities as well as a springbox cooler area in the building part. Half dovetailed, chestnut rafters. The 20' long top plates that extend over the logs and spring that carried the roof were recycled, apparently from the center aisle of a previous barn. One would be a good summer project at Hightop
