Back of log cabin

New Day

This is the back of the cabin. After gluing the logs to make the walls, I painted them with Burnt Sienna. I can't stand the smell of stain. Then I did the "chinking" with thinned spackle put into an old glue bottle for dispensing. (Thanks Havanaholly!) It was messy, I guess I never got the spackle mixture to the right consistency, it would either sit in a line that I would have to spread to make it touch both logs, or it would spread on it's own too much. Both ways, I just went back and repainted over the excess. Just noticing in the pics that the roof is not centered! Oh well, too late now! Maybe once the chimney is in it will look a little more balanced? A girl can hope!

You've done a lovely job on your log cabin!

Holly is always a trusted adviser. Her common-sense methods really work.

The roof looks good - what are you going to use to build the chimney?

Thanks Susanne,

The kit comes with die cut pieces for the chimney, fireplace, and some furniture. Also a pattern and mix for doing the stones. I think it is like "Magic Stone". Never done anything like that before, so it will be interesting if nothing else!
