Building our “hippie log mansion!” by Jim Cooperman

Check out  the full version of Jim’s latest post Building our “hippie log mansion!” over at Shuswap Passion.

The building progression is fun to read.

This portion of the post stood out for me, partly because of the links to the Roots and Blues venue but also as the precursor to the Storefront Alternate program in Salmon Arm

Although I had done some log work before, I learned on the job the “Mackie” method of log building, using saddle notches and v-notches along the length of the log which meant no chinking was needed. I joined two other instructors, Randy and Douglas, to supervise a team of 8 young school dropouts, many of them First Nation youth.
