2018-10-31T01:16:06+00:00

Off Grid Log Cabin Build – A little roof framing and apology

2017-03-06T00:04:21+00:00

Here I am installing the concrete foundation piers for my off grid log cabin build. Before I started mixing concrete we were lucky enough to have a couple days of good rainfall which allowed me to collect enough rainwater for concrete mixing. The forms I am using are Sakrete branded
