After the Appalachian erection crew is gone, you or your contractor then begins to erect the proches. These are nornally not built prior to log erection in order to give heavy equipment access to the sub floor..
Traditional carpenters begin to frame the interior partition and gable end walls.
After competion of the porch deck floor, your carpenters using hand-hewn beams, rafters and supports, supplied by ALH install the porch and the porch roof.
Finish roof decking, windows, doors, chinking, stain and the fireplace complete the drying in of the house.
Exterior log siding, board and batten, or featheredge bark siding complete the gables and the dormers. (Once log siding is chinked and stained, the house has the appearance of having full log gables).
