Make the Design

A house project starts with an architectural drawing. You should have one too. If you can’t draw one, have someone do it for you. Try to get as much detail in as possible. When drawing, include the measurements for each piece. Do this now so you’ll get the proper supplies. When you build a log cabin, things will be easier if you have the right quantity in hand.

Select the Building Area

Almost always it will be in a “natural scenery” type setting. The site must be level and plain. Paving the ground and removing the rocks and grass will be necessary.
