...feels like all day just to get one 11' log hung horizontally, perpendicular, and level on the south wall.

The 7' off the ground loft rails will encircle the interior when I place another 11' log on the north wall.

Decided I liked the platform and made it permanent....

...this meant a trip to Hillbilly Manson for hardware.

This morning, I framed in the highest window. This is my hot air escape for summer.
