HALF-FACE SHELTER PROJECT:

I am starting a new project this summer: a half-face shelter. They were usually the first dwelling erected when setting up a semi-permanent camp when traveling west.  I am using white cedar logs for mine, locally harvested.  There are a total of 30, some for the walls, some for the roof.  Friend Gene Shadley came over to help.  I will let these logs season for a while before I put up the shelter, about 8 by 10 feet in diameter.

More to come images to come soon, having some web site issues–thanks for you patience!
