Site visit to a home we built in 2004 on Otter Lake near Dorset Ont. Any body that knows me, knows I very much dis like eagles and other random wild life carved into log ends, it's totally tacky to me. But here in the year of the prow, we threw an otter in at the bottom of the king post of the entry truss. Carving work credited to Freind and trapper, Dale Black. I like it!!! #tbt #davidsonloghomes #loghome #logbuilder @ Dorset, Ontario

The little shop that could! A lot of people didn't know this, but we have a cabinet shop that Ali works out of as well! It's amazing what she can do in this 24x28 log cabin shop! Here are some beautiful custom doors Ali is building for @campwhitepineofficial . Constructed with full mortise and tenon. These are the doors you just don't find any where else, and the ones that will last! #solidwood #mortiseandtenon @ Davidson Log & Timber Artisans

Last Saturday I woke up to a thought of having book shelves in the hall way. Ali and I love books!, it probably has something to do with the 18 years with out television, and that probably has something to do with having 4 children. Once the book shelf was ready, our youngest daughter, Edie started the worthy task of going through our boxes of books, books we didn't have the heart to let go,catagorizing our literary treasures, (like "the craft of log building" for example, lol or one of Ali's Tolstoy 's) one by one,. She came across an old photo album, era 1996 ish. The year I started in this craft under Bullock and Co. In New lowell, On. Edie asked me who's house this was, and I can't remember the name, but I remember Denise @westedendesign1 designed the home, I think it was in '97, or 98, ,it was my first note worthy log roof system, and it was in Boone ,North Carolina, which had an amazing steak house, called "the peddler " where they would roll the trolley of beef out to the dining area, and have you pick the cut, and the size. @westedendesign1 , was it the Duffy house? @ Davidson Log & Timber Artisans
