Nice job on the project.  Really preserves the character of the reclaimed wood.

I am happy to report of a positive turn on a salvage project across the road from my house.  a new development is going in and the original log cabin is still mostly intact on the property.  The developer had no intention of preserving it.  He just wanted it gone.  I helped arrange a meeting with a contact I have who deals with reclaimed wood.  A deal was made and he starts disassembly next month.


The cabin had a later add on and a rebuild of the roof, but the original wall are still standing on the stacked rock foundation.  The house was sealed with the local red clay soil.
