Hello everyone from WI

Hello everyone, Greg here from Wisconsin. I relocated here from the East Coast 15 years ago and love the country. I have been in the trades now for over 30 yrs. As licensed plumber/pipefitter and General Contractor for 24 yrs now. I recently designed and now manufacture the most versatile belt system on the market today. With the past 9 years of research, development and patents taking up most my time I now have some time to sit in these forums and relax a bit. I think this is an awesome way to give back to those who need answers. I have many years of experience between plumbing, construction, remodeling, renovating, windows, doors etc. and hope I can help some of you out. I don't know it all and never will but you can pick my brain as much as you like. Thanks Again, & never give up! Greg

Thanks! Wow...and where should I begin? I'll post a couple photos of a side hobby I have helping a friend of mine with. He started one of these just for the sake of trying it. Didn't do to bad for never building a log cabin from scratch. Now we are up to 3. These are just hobbie houses that we mess with during the off season when work is slow. As you can see I have supplied him with top of the line windows! Lets see if I can get these photos posted correctly.
Thanks again for the warm welcome. Greg

Nice Cabin !!!!

Do you develope your own plans or use existing plans and modify them to your specs?

I am considering this also for a country house.

Either that or shipping containers.

Hello, No.. no plans what so ever. As I mentioned this happens to be my GF's brother. He gets bored and decided one day he wanted to build a log cabin from scratch. So away he started, then one thing led to another, and another, now there are 3 of these side by side. Even a outhouse with a gas fired incinerator! I will take a few more photos for you all to see. He does most of the work, we all just kind of help out here and there. I cant take credit for much other than a little help, guidance and supplying the overpriced windows for these shacks. These are by no means up to code or anything else, they turned into work shops and tool sheds and a occasional sleeping quarters when he wants to get away from his wife! They are strictly a hobby. Even getting our own electric transformer we had to classify them as sheds. Crazy huh? I told him we could sell these things to out of state hunters for their cabins. We have some big dollar guys coming up from Chicago and Minneapolis area that would pay big bucks for these. I will get you some more detailed pics, they will blow your mind. I tried pulling more off my CD but I downloaded them from another computer and didn't format them for my new one. These are all hand carved, notched and placed together by hand! Pretty Wild. Attached is Cabin #2 ,, Will see you all later, GregC

Between searching for down trees, select cutting them out of our woods, other woods and old utility poles. It takes about a year or so in between to gather enough of logs to build. You will be surprised how many utility pole have to be removed and replaced by code. Once these are removed they sit at the utility site for someone to take or they have to pay for them to be taken. So if you are searching for poles, find the local utility annex, and most of the time there are stacks of these sitting there. These poles have to be inspected every year by law in most places and are tagged with a tag of inspection. If there is one thing that does not meet code, they have to be replaced! Good Luck GregC
