    There is an historical old schoolhouse less than a 1/2 mile from me that was built that way. Kinda cool. Still standing there 100 plus years later.

    I would love to own a log cabin somewhere in Quebec near a good flyfishing river with these types of joints. Nothing stops one from dreaming.

    Oh of course close to a lumber mill too.
    cheers
