Went to eat at a local bbq joint today & they had some wood boards with grout for wall paneling. Kind of a cool look. #wood #woodpanel #woodandgrout #woodgrain #chinking

To Gather In Friday 😋 #chinking

My husband and I Worked at my clients cabin today. Just thought I would share my progress. This room had nothing but an old over stuffed sofa, a TV on a dresser and a TV tray. The skis I found antiquing and will hang on wall behind sofa. Hubby found a nail in wall and hung one, lol. The leather sofa and loveseat are a Craigslist find for 350. The end tables found at restore for 35 bucks each. Pair of brass lamps with shades 30.00 (I know right?!). Coffee table at a small country store for 115.00. It's all coming together nicely. We put up the king size poster bed too and It looks great! Can't wait to show you! Have a great evening friends! #renovations #fixerupper #thisoldhouse #Countryliving #cabin #logcabin #rugs #farmhouse #originallogcabin #interiordecorating #homedecor #farmhousestyle #cottagecountry #houseandhome #lodge #homestaging #rustic #chinking #logs #country #styling #architecture #oldhouse #vintage #1856cabin

The Blacksmith- Post 6 of the #cabinsalvage . My AWESOME helpers! Knocking out the chinking with Daddy's hammers. There were a lot of gaps already, but still plenty that had to be removed. I would call this traditional chinking- 6-8" oak rounds rived into hand-sized boards, then, starting with a stacking block, laid tightly in the gaps so that the end result looks like a row of dominoes that has been pushed over. This was then covered inside and out with mortar- until they ran out. Then the builders located a nice clay source and dug out enough to finish the chinking. This gravelly clay does not appear to have been mixed with anything before using. .
.
Interestingly, this upstairs floor is not nailed down at all. It is made of full-length sawmill-run oak 1x6 lumber, cut to a snug length and fitted just tight enough that a firm push by hand or a couple light taps with a bootheel would set it in place. I cannot help but think there must have been a reason for this, (besides lack of nails- there are plenty in the rest of the house!) especially since both access openings are mere crawlspaces. Perhaps a means of getting larger pieces of furniture upstairs? What do you think?

Been a while since we've given a cabin update. The interior chinking is about halfway done and looks great! Few more weeks and all chinking will be finished. Again, big thanks to our friend Paul for his work and great skill with this! #logcabin #cabin #chinking #nc #huntingcabin #deerhunting #hunting #outdoors #wildlife #hunter #huntress #bigbuck #whitetail #deer #filmedhunt #filmthehunt #huntingvideo #video #videography #media #whatgetsyououtdoors #itsinmynature #iamsportsman #huntingourtrophies #anglersalike #huntersalikemedia #huntersalike
