Taking down and putting back up a log home

Today was a big day for The Simple Farm folks. Today we moved our logs out to the farm. I don’t know if I can be as humorous as usual as I can barely move the tips of my fingers. I’m sore from head to feet. I only fell off the log walls once it was kind of scary as it was the very top log. Good thing it was in a corner as I just grabbed the walls to support myself as I climbed back up.

Rico came and helped with the big move. Thank heavens. If it wasn’t for him we’d probably be still tearing down. As it happens we actually tore down the whole contraption and put up six more rows of logs.

Here’s a bunch of pics from the day.

We had to pry up each log and put straps around each end. Not too hard of a job for two extremely tuff guys.
