    There is some great looking houses in there, I like the ones with the dark brown roofs on them best I think.

    Man that’s gotta be great to do something you enjoy and have such a demand for it.

    Won’t be bad till you get to the roof. That might up the level of difficulty a notch or two.

    I’ve went over and over it in my head about that very thing since Dirty mentioned it, the double miters on the roof sections sound like a lot of trial/error till I get the right degree combination. If the roof was flat it’d be easy. But once ya raise up the center then???? Oh boy, I go kinda blank cuz I don’t know what I’m doing LOL

    I have done a few octagon birdhouses in the past but not log style . They are pretty easy to build .

    Well sheet there ya go, All ya have to do is ask around here. Looks good JohnL, This is where a metal roof would be best. Eliminates the second miter where the sections meet since it’s thin, It’d be a lot of extra work for me to join them using 7/16″ thick material…….Unless I’m over thinking it???? Maybe there’s an easy formula to it that I don’t know about

    I just like using the metal because it last a long time . I did a wood roof under the steel .Perfect mitres too 😉

    You do perfect miters cuz yer a ‘Pro’ 🙂 ……. I do like the looks of the octagonal houses. Kinda reminds me of a ‘Yurt’ that is so popular around here up in the mountains, But they also look a little Japanese to me too

    I could tell you the degree of angle if that helps unless you are going with a steeper pitch .

    I could use an example sure, Although I’m not dead set on making one of these yet so if it’s not on the top of your head then don’t go to any trouble.

    Is it something as simple like say ya have a 30* pitch angle than ya cut em each at 15*? Awww heck that can’t be right either LOL, Yep I’m guessing 🙂

    It is 20 degree angle and 20 degree bevel .

    Holy Santas shiny sleigh balls, I looked all that over and wowwy. I usually enjoy this kind of stuff but man, This time it looks a little over my head. But, I think I can understand it……….. I’ll be printing it out and taking an anxiety pill for a sit down study session, I could simply go by some of the examples but I want to know why it works out like it does mathematically. I’m kinda weird like that but it’s how I learn it, I gotta know why LOL…..Thanks for the link, I’ll enjoy it

    Btw, I bought a 16ga nail gun yesterday. And a pinner to go with it just cuz I didn’t have that one either, I may try that hard wood again after all. Those 16rs shoot like a much stronger no-nonsense ‘real’ nail

    I have seen guys try to nail oak with a 18 gauge nailer and the nails bend like spaghetti in no time but not the 16 gauge .

    Oh man that is so good to know, I only shot up a 2×4 so far but could tell a big difference. Enough to know I REALLY don’t want to shoot up a finger with it, I’m thinking the fun of the rush sensations won’t be as much fun with that one after all 🙂 …….I was so surprised at the difference in size of the two guns too, Man that 16 is a lot bigger

    If you like getting into some advanced math used in construction this is a great site:

    Lots of good info there if you can get through it.
