    Log House

    Gene, I use a three layer Wall Type that allows me to dimension accurately. The company I draw for uses D logs with foam insulation between logs (no chinking). The gables are framed with half logs. The log corners are poly-solids. So far Happy Builder and Happy Clients and Happy Me, Ken

    Roof Lookout Framing Modelling

    Hello Doug, I am in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia No problem with uplift or inspectors here (so far). Never know when that might change. In the case of a Prow Gable (which is only occasionally for the guys I work with) we build the gable low and run the look outs back to the next truss. Ken We just call it a Chicken Ladder

    Roof Lookout Framing Modelling

    I know things are done differently in other parts of the country but this is the way we do our lookouts. 2x6 fly rafter with 2x6 lookout nailed to the end truss. Sheathing applied and then set on wall. Hope all have a Happy New Year, Ken
