Is there another part that I’m missing? I didn’t take away any info on building ponds or natural pools... but I want to know so badly!!!
If I may ask, why are you moving? Where are you now? Where are you hoping to go?

Hey there,

Building out here in the old cascadian region.. "we(s)t" side of the cascades. I have a small cabin with drywall for the interior walls and i will be applying a finish clay plaster to them. My understanding is that the drywall just needs the seams tapped and mudded and thats it...

Ive been told that if i want to be extra careful I could apply a glue and sand primer coat so the plaster will stick better... I was also told its not completely necessary...

Just wanted to double check all this with the community before i begin..

Why did the tree fall down?  Did a storm knock it down while it was alive or did it die and fall down later?

Ah, a storm knocked it down! But I guess I’d like the answer for both those options

Hey there, I’m new to all this business but a tree has fallen (a beautifully enormous...maybe 150-200ft tall Doug fir) down a hill from my house, kinda hard to get too but not horrible..

Anyway, I want to mill it and what not but I’m not sure sure how long I can let it sit there in the forest...

How long can I let the fallen tree sit in the woods? (Wpnw)
