Frame Assembly – Day 1

February 9, 2011

The assembly crew finally got started today. On Monday, the log delivery was so late because the truck drove into the ditch. On Tuesday, a little snowstorm was too much to start. Today, even that an arctic storm blew over the area at -12 degrees, the 6 man strong assembly crew from Mammuttihirsi started to put the frame together.

After laying a layer of tar-paper and and a layer of insulation material, they assembled the first row. After the first row was adjusted and hammered into place things start to move ahead a bit faster.

After a days of work Villa Linnea comes to life. Already now the rooms don’t look so small anymore.

The roof beams and floor beams were delivered also today. And just before midnight, the replacement logs should be delivered. Supposedly even by the poor guy that threw his truck into ditch last Monday. Surprising fast turnaround from Mammutihirsi. Only yesterday at 11.00 we told them which 8 logs need to replaced. They had to be manufactured and shipped in less than 24 hours. Impressive.

    Are those logs just put together and held by their own weight, or do they have to be glued together at each row?

    Hi, they are held together by their own. The stuff is quite heavy. No glue needed.
