A Small Dovetail Log Cabin - built with Massive Ponderosa Pine

A Homage to the Ponderosa

As the pine trees of British Columbia fell victim to the Mountain Pine Beetle we had the opportunity to pay tribute to the Ponderosa Pine - that iconic tree of the dry belt region.

Back in 2009 I wrote:
3 courses of logs bring the walls to plate height of 9'4

 "We are working on a very unusual little building using very large beetle killed Ponderosa.
These majestic trees - so iconic of the inter-mountain desert, are fast disappearing and we will never see their like again.
I hope to build one or two local structures that will remind generations to come of these beautiful giants."

 We hope you enjoy this video story of a Dovetail Log Home built with "Denim Pine"
