Here's our friend, Risto, posing with my new mallet and favorite slick. Notice the cedar stain I used on the floorboards. I treated those boards since it seems it'll be a good while before we get a roof up -- probably all summer.
I'm at a bit of a standstill, waiting on a time when I can fell some trees -- it's a bit frustrating to be in the middle of the woods but with no raw materials. To paraphrase Coleridge, "Poplars poplars everywhere, but not a log to notch!" As soon as I can cut 20 or 30 fourteen foot logs, we'll be in the debarking, notching, wall-building business.
