Oh man that's so nice. I love all the wood. Mine is all engineered lumber so it's not pretty, but hopefully it's forever. Thanks for the good luck,good to have ya along man!!!
your pictures and situation bring back so many memories for me!! my place isn't nearly as big as yours but i will never forget the day we put up the ridge pole... damn it was cold and windy that day!!! so i can understand some of your struggles for sure!!
my living room was the pride of the whole place.. oak trees grown and milled within a couple miles of here, all hand treated and built into a fourteen foot cathedral... that was a long time ago, old and dusty looking these days!!!
