Sample text

Many solid and beautiful examples of hewn log buildings still exist in British Columbia, some of which are 150 years o l d . Shown here is the main trading post of the Hudson s Bay Company at Fort St. James, constructed in the French method of p i e c e - e n - p i e c e . The meat cache is done in the same s t y l e . , the only other example I have seen of this way of finishing the eves. Of historical interest is the fact that the original trading post and meat cache were built under the North West C o .

Structurally this is bad even if the top log ends up d i r e c t l y over the first l o g . It is better to be ruthless and make the required correction as soon as the deviation is n o t e d . It w i l l look better in the long run and w i l l be more stable. F I N I S H I N G THE L O G ENDS If the log ends are permitted to run well beyond the corners, you w i l l have a greater choice of style in finishing them. Many people cut them straight o f f , 8 or 10 inches from the w a l l . This is neat and the ends are more easily painted if this is desired.

A locked joint or "egg crate" joint is easily made and gives a good appearance. It is strong and stable, well suited to hewn timbers. The log ends may be left long in order to give a more casual appearance. A drawback to this s t y l e , however, is that it would be very d i f f i c u l t to groove the logs for the tight f i t which is so important. The Hudson's Bay corner is sometimes used but is not illustrated here. It is formed by spiking logs to boxed upright planks at the corners. It is unstable and does not allow the logs to settle firmly together.
