    I talked to our communications director about her experience with it this morning, she said 300DPI looked quite good even when printed very large. Now, 'very large' in this case was like 2Ĺ x 3 and 3 x 4 ft-sized photos for awards and retirement ceremonies, not wall-paper sized..

    Methinks I do see some notching just left of bottom center before the structure goes to span the chasm.

    I have heard of this type of Trestle building in area's in the early years of logging in the Northwest, they would build a quick temporary trestle to bridge a short steep ravine. This way the timber that was used for the trestle could be salvaged and sent to the mill, as it was still good for lumber!

    I donít think the pioneers and other generations that built log cabins to live in and raise families left gaps of five to six inches between the logs knowing that they would have to be filled with mud or something else and mud to seal them from the winter weather. Barns for livestock were built with gaps between the logs but not cabins. I saw a couple of log cabins many years ago that were over a hundred years old at the time. All the gaps between the logs were filled with mud and dirt.

    all in all it is very impressive. I cant see where the coves are but with all that weight I guess they are squashed into the coves.

    If it fell over I wouldn't like to pick up all those sticks.

    You should visit Virginia and other parts of the Eastern mountains forest areas some time there are still lots of old log cabins dating 150 years and more ago that have 5 and 6 inch gaps between the structure logs those gaps are filled in with the slabbed off sides cob and sticks but are in no way tied to the structure
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    There is an old log cabin from the mining days, right around 150 years old, a couple of canyons over from me. It's a cool little restaurant now. We like to joke about how the log cabin is so old that it's "more chinking than log". It's a good analogy, and it's so much chinking now that it almost doesn't even look like a log cabin.

    I’m very close to Virginia, about 30 minutes away. You must be talking about somebody’s old barn.
