Yet another wood house


This is my most recent one, last summer, 2014. Not one of my largest, only four rooms, but  nicely constructed.  I am learning more wood house building techniques as I go along.

One might ask to what end, or how would one use these skills and techniques that I am learning; to which I would reply, ” well to build wood houses, of course.”

This  is video of the house about three quarters finished. The front room and the hallway are to be finished.


Finally finished driveway full of logs.

I have been somewhat derelict in publishing posts to this blog. It is not really a blog. Since, as I understand it, a blog is something one post ideas, thoughts, observations, etc. to, on a regular basis,daily weekly, etc. I post as I find the time and the inclination, which, as can be seen, is relatively rarely.

I’m doing this post simply to follow up the most immediately previous one in June and to report that I finally finished splitting that enormous number of logs that the fellow in New Rochelle, on Mulberry Street, had piled up in his driveway.I started in June and finished September. As I think I mentioned, I did a couple of cords and had them piled up and then they were taken away by friends, neighbors in New Rochelle, etc., Then the owner of the logs changed his mind and asked me to put them in his garage, which he didn’t use for his cars. I started doing it and filled about half the garage. Maybe five or six cords. I include some not very good pictures of that.








Free Firewood

That place where I am doing my splitting now, and have been for the past month and, it looks like I will be there for the next couple of months, is getting filled up with firewood and I have no place more to pile it since it is just a small driveway. The neighbors that walk by keep promising to take it but they don’t. I finally had my gardener come by and take a huge pile, probably couple of  cords. So, now I am announcing to any one who reads this blog and who lives within a convenient distance to come and pick up free firewood at 56 Mulberry Ln., Larchmont, NY. The owner doesn’t want it, he took enough ,and I don’t want it I just want the exercise. So come by any time of the day and night and take whatever firewood is in the driveway.
