Another Rainy Day
I had hoped to get the 1st 3/4 sill log dressed and on the wall today but it rained all afternoon. I done a little in between showers. All I was able to do was dress the flat and cut for the back door opening. This log has a bend in it about six feet from the butt. I'm using it so that it can be cut for the back door. Ideally you would not want your sill logs to be cut but I don't have that option. I'll talk about this later. See the video above to see this log brushed, planed and sanded.

11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; 12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
