    You could also get the listings for propeties that are auctioned off for unpaid taxes, That’s what dignam does. You pay for ontario tax property listings.

    When I see those timber and log homes although they are beautiful I see it as a big wast to resources. Ti looks like you could build a whole street of homes with the logs in one home.

    We’ve got sheetsloads of trees here in Canada! No shortage in sight.

    For those kinds of log builds, it’s more about the time and labour to build them and the higher cost of selective tree culling in remote locales that sets the price.

    Doesn’t a lot of our lumber go to the states ? I know there is no shortage of wood in British Columbia .

    this looks just awesome. I never thought a log cabin could be built using mortar to hold the wood.

    Thanks for posting great videos. I am not planning to build a log cabin any time soon, but this is good to know type of thing. Worthy of bookmarking.

    I would love to do this. When I was 20 years old I found out my Grandfather Wilfred built his own cabin and catamaran. Would like to give it a shot at some point in my life also.

    Closest I came was owning a log home a lot of years ago. We moved it, one piece, about 7 miles to a new foundation on 5 acres. Built in the 1840s, it was 10 logs high, 2 storeys, 8′ ceilings, centre hall, 4 bedrooms.

    Wish I hadn’t sold it.

    It’s a little less than 2 hours from the big smoke. Just about as far as I am right now.

    Back then, logs were cut and split into 8″ thick portions, flattened with an adze an stacked with dovetailed joints on the corners. Some of the logs in that house were 30″ high. Sill was hemlock and the rest was pine.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Sounds really nice. And to think that was all done by hand. They really must have spent some time building the house.
