Yea, the wall log posts made me laugh too. I guess the owner just doesn't sweat the details. I think the posts are set over a pin at the base, although I wouldn't put it past him to just rest the posts on the concrete. I'm sure no knife plates were used. As I recall, they used scraps of Linoleum as a barrier between post and concrete.Not that I have many nice things to say about someone who builds a log cabin using a 'kit' anyways... But this is by far the funniest failure I have ever seen. :laughing:
I have to say that using a wall log for a deck post is the most laughable of the offenses... Just imagine sitting on the deck, sipping on a cocktail, staring at that crap. (oops, cope I mean..)
P.S. Are those post even fastened to the concrete piers or just resting on top of them?
BTW, the perma-drunk cowboy (that's his normal trade) that built the deck is subject to random breathalyzer tests after his 4th dui, which keeps him from drinking regular beer, so he drinks non-alcoholic beer at a rate of 2 cases a day.
