Now that the log walls are stacked out, it’s time to start on the roof system. While setting the walls takes some skill, it is quickly learned, and repeated over, and over, and over again. This cabin stacked out pretty quickly.
With the roof system being set, comes an order of magnitude in complication. In some log packages, we will have to cut the rake on the log wall for the gable. We always want to go back to the “measure twice, cut once principle, and maybe double it, just for certainty. That takes some time, and a certain level of competency with the saw. With the Honka product, they do everything they can to minimize the amount of saw-work done in the field. This enormously simplifies the log erection process. It of course increases the upfront work on the drawings, and the factory prep time, but it is well worth the investment.
