Nestled in on the Black river, which saw a lot of pine come down it in the logging hay days, is this typical pioneer home from circa 1860, built of massive white pine logs, with tamarack pole rafters. 20x30, story and 3/4, with a summer kitchen add on. Check out the dove tail pins. An up and coming full restoration project. @ Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park

We installed some beautiful windows in the #sunroom at #littlefalls . We use @lepagemillwork for all our #loghome projects. These are factory stained XL double hung units overlooking Washago's Green River. Dont let the size fool you. These windows go up and down with one finger.

Remembering that terrible, sad day when 14 women 's lives were taken from them, just because they were women. :( Our deepest sympathies go out to those families of #ecolepolytechniquedemontreal , and every other family that has suffered from violence against women. Celina is the newest member of our team going on 2 months. A graduate of the 3 year heritage Carpentry #course Algonquin College , she has the #rightstuff to become a very fine #loghome #builder. We are happy Celina came to us first:) Here she is learning how to use her saw like a #pro #girlpower #dovetail #logbuildingschool #learntocutlikeapro #cuttotheline #womenempowerment Husqvarna with a xp #davidsonloghomes @ Davidson Log & Timber Artisans

We are thankfully down to the short strokes in Cayuga, after working in the yard for a few weeks. The windows came in, so we removed the old ones. We decided to recut the openings, it was just another thing on this job we couldn't leave "as is" Sometimes you find things you dont want to find. And integrity, is all you have at that point. So fix it, because if it doesn't get done by you, it wont get done.
