Here are photos of the Overland House rebuild (see prior posts of the disassembly). I began with stonework in mid July, and am finally at the point of wrapping up for the winter months. I replaced the bottom course of logs, and other than a bit of warping and twisting, the building went up as planned. Believe it or not, we raised every last log by hand. Thank god for friends.

big and heavy logs are easily lifted with rope
south elevation- notice interior log partition wall
five purlins run from each gable end- this roof system was commonly employed in Norway to support the weight of a sod roof
