Thanks 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.


i found my truss paperwork, it says 12/12 over 9/12 for 2x6 walls.
2' overhang. for johns 20x30 plan i needed 14 scissor trusses @ 74.20 each and 2 gable, drop chord trusses @ 91.20 each..
total before taxes was 1221.20

Looking 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.

Love it!!  Great job Astidham, can't wait to see more pictures of your siding.  We are also going to use log siding.   [cool]

Can'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.

looking 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?

I 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.

I will caulk and paint it all after its all up.
as for the gable, it will be log all the way to the soffit.
the soffit will be covered with cedar, 1x6 cedar pickets more than likely.

I bought this from a local sawmill, I'm not too sure what they used to make it machine wise, but all the log is from local wood!
I would like to be able to saw all my interior wood like you are OlJarhead!

A moulder, basically a 4 sided planer that can take knives that are either straight or ground to shape. Think of the shapes you've seen on router bits and imagine those profiles on planer knives. I ran one for a cabinet shop for a couple of years making frame stock for the cabinets and custom trim for the trade. Feed in a 2x8 and a piece of log siding comes out the other end. Or feed in a rough cut 1x and a piece of T&G panelling, or crown molding, or baseboard comes out the other end. And a whole pile of shavings goes up the chutes. At one time prize winning livestock at the state fair pooped on my shavings. I've got an old '28 Vonnegut (Kurt's grandad) here that is a 10,000 lb boat anchor if you know anyone that needs one.
This page has a good description and some examples. The cabinet shop had a SCM throughfeed machine back when that was a new concept, ours was the 7th one made. http://www.contactswwmachinery.com/listings.asp?type=Moulders&keyword=Used%20Moulders

Looking good.  Make sure that when you get to the point of completion that you put something to preserve the siding. Insects love raw wood.

Thanks Redoverfarm, we are going to prime and paint it a wood like color...
how long do you think it can stay raw?

I would give it long enough to dry out some.  I would follow-up with a borate to treat the wood for insects and allow it to dry a little longer before putting any finish color. I think Don_P had a formula for the borate. Might I suggest staining rather than painting.  There are a multitude of colors available in both solid and semi-transparent finishes. BTW I used an oil based rather than water based. Paint IMO has a tendency not to last as long between maintenance periods and I think that using a oil based will seal the insect treatment into the wood better.
