    Nice shed. I noticed that the bark was removed in the roofed photo. Did you have to remove it or did it start to fall away as the logs dried out? I guess you built with green logs again. Did you flat the tops and bottom of the logs or just set them on the round? Are you going to chink or leave the small gap for air circulation? Again very well done.

    I had a tornado come through and knock some trees down. I built the shed with those logs, after the walls were up I powered washed the bark off. I don't plan on chinking. It's a storage shed to keep things dry.

    I think your English is much better than my Russian. You are doing fine. Do you use a moss or lichen to fill the space between logs?

    Yes, we use the moss for the longitudinal grooves. Close up the gap. I think our technology is very similar but on the Alaska and Canada is cold too ))

    What do you use to cover the roof of the room inside the gable? Doesn't water blow in when it rains?

    This is "Labaz" (russian name). It taiga hunters and natives store supplies. legs covered with sheet metal because mouses run to in Labaz. or on the legs are made the cuts, that delays mice

    But some are being built at a height of about 3 meters, so that he couldn't bear to climb! And taken into account the depth of snow cover.

    Great pic's.
    So as I understand it, the room in the hut has a ceiling? Then the loft part is left open?
