Nice.
Is that a new construction or restoration?

Re: Vintage Log Cabin In Virginia


We designed the cabin then used salvaged material that we had to build. Most of our cabins are relocations and restore/renovate. This was our design from the ground up. Built with spanner and floater logs just like they used to. We also do all our own log chinking.

Here are two cabins that we actually relocated and then restored.

https://www.spearbuilders.net/portfolio/the-log-home/
https://www.spearbuilders.net/portfo...bedford-cabin/

Both of these are at Stevenson Ridge, which is a bed and breakfast in Spotsylvania that we relocated 11 houses too.

That's nice 👍🏻

Did you guys do the dovetail corners on that first cabin, or was it moved?

I love to see that kind of work! How about the floor joists on the one picture, do you stain the with a gray?
