Is there anything finer than the morning sunshine streaming into a log bedroom?
This old log-builder’s eye is drawn to the two logs above the headboard of this bed… the ones with the joists notches carved into them… clearly they have no purpose on this end wall where no joists are found.
We placed these logs back into their original location within this early 1800’s cabin.. Careful examination of these two logs revealed embedded hand-forged nails which indicated that these logs were part of a much earlier cabin and had been re-purposed into this cabin.
It turns out that people have been building new homes with salvaged materials for a very long time.
There is nothing new under the sun.
