Ulrik Twin log Cabins pt 2

This post is a follow on from Mr J’s Ulrik Twins Log Cabin post so it maybe better to read that one first if you have not already. Mr J was kind enough to send an update on his twin Ulrik Log Cabins which, like his first posts contains some very good tips on his build which may help you with yours and more specifically finishing the build.

Same on the other cabin. Whilst they are tied to the cabins, they are done so with slotted hangars to allow for movement in the wood (the ones shown here were temporary)
