This 1000 sqft footprint old dovetail timber Appalachian style home is being built by Eric at Old log cabins. All the timbers are reclaimed from old dovetail barn timbers dotting the country side. This one uses 8″ wide x 12″ high timbers with about 3″ chinking. No settling is anticipated in this construction as the wood is long time dried to local moisture equilibrium. The Appalachian architectural style is so interesting and distinctive with exterior stone fireplace at centre of gable with shed roof wrap around covered decks. This is a revival of the old construction style of the old days using reclaimed massive timber for the shell. 700 sqft Second floor has two bedrooms with a central bathroom to share. The roof is a regular 2X10 frame roof with ridge board as snow load is so low at 10PSF.
