    And the Katahdin begins

    I'll see if I can take you guys along for the ride.
    We had to take a quick ride to Houlton Maine to order our building.

ID:	93517 Right side up. Here is what the log plan looks like. Every log has a number that matches.

    I'll be interested in seeing how they go together (and the whole build for that matter). I've helped build two, one for my aunt, which used large spikes with splines between the logs, the other my sister's which used long lag bolts. My aunts we ran all the electrical in the metal wall mounted channels and did floor boxes. My sister's we drilled channels in each log as we stacked them and mortised boxes in where needed.

    There is a lot of drilling and mortising in electrical boxes in my near future. I think you will find this home pretty interesting, Katahdin does some cool stuff with how they build a home.
