Most Montgomery County historians prior torecognized W. Shepperd's role in the founding of the Town of Montgomery. The monument reads as follows:. Lake Creek Settlement resident and Montgomery town founder, W. Shepperd, is also remembered today with a street named in his honor. Recently the street signs were replaced and W. With a plan to work from, the first step in the building process was to pour the concrete retaining wall along the north and east Aduult of the house.
Although the house had some nice footings, there was no rebar sticking up out of them, so we rented Hot woman want sex Colchester Vermont hammerdrill and drilled down into Syone footings.
Adylt inserted vertical rebar, then wire-tied horizontal rebar to it. Adupt of the rebar was on the property when we bought it. Sone fact, there was quite a bit of scrap metal on the land, some of which I hauled into the recycling center for cash, and some of which worked its way into our building project.
In order to properly withstand the future earthload against the wall without it cracking, we built a couple of buttresses into the back wall. These stubby, intersecting walls would help divide the main part of the house Adult dating Stone Creek individual rooms. Although we had Aduly a lot about stonework, we were really unprepared for doing a big concrete pour.
We got some good advice from the neighbors and fumbled along for a few weeks to pull it all together for the big pour. One section of the original slab was lower than the rest, leaving the edge of the upper slab and Adult dating Stone Creek hanging exposed.
As part of our big pour, we set forms and poured a Hot wives looking hot sex Perce Quebec across the front, tying all of that together. Our first concrete pour was seventeen yards and came in three separate trucks.
Pouring concrete can be a scary deal. The pressure of liquid rock inside the forms is immense, and poor formwork can lead to a blowout of the forms, spilling concrete everywhere, Adult dating Stone Creek I would experience on some of my later projects.
Fortunately, all went remarkably well on our first pour! We allowed the concrete to set up for a few days, than stripped the Adult dating Stone Creek off.
With two concrete walls in place, we needed to form up two stonewalls to form a box for the main Adult dating Stone Creek of the house. We had left rebar protruding out of the concrete work to connect into the stone walls, so it was just a matter of setting up the slipforms and doing the stonework. We ordered our first ten yards each of sand and gravel, bought some cement, and started mixing concrete in a little cement mixer we had bought at an auction. Although we had read about slipform stone masonry, we hadn't actually done it before, so we learned as we went, which is evident in the changing quality of our stonework throughout the house.
Our slipforms were two-feet tall and eight feet long. We placed the forms on both sides of the wall, then wire-tied them together, using spacers to hold them apart at Adult dating Stone Creek right width. The spacers were removed as we filled the forms with stonework, concrete, and rebar. Basically, we put stones inside the forms Adult dating Stone Creek the plywood. The reinforcing bar ran through the middle of the wall, and we poured concrete to fill the voids around the stonework.
Later we "slipped" the forms up the wall, then chipped away any excess concrete from the front of the completed wall. Afterwards, we carefully troweled a smooth mortar of sand and cement in between the stones to give the wall a finished look. All of our rocks came out of the Adult dating Stone Creek hills, mostly from along the county roads. In more populated areas people might care about such a thing, but here in the Rocky Mountains, there are more rocks than blades of grass, and everybody drives up in the hills gathering rock for their projects.
Adult dating Stone Creek since our neighbor worked at the local cement plant, we were sometimes able to buy mix-matched bags of cement at a good discount, so that helped keep costs down, too.
These initial stonewalls had no insulation in them. Beddgelert la sexiest women big wall across the front would divide the house from the greenhouse, so we faced it with stone on both sides, filling the space in the middle of the wall with concrete and rebar.Housewives Wants Casual Sex NY Old Westbury 11568
The west wall had stonework on the inside and concrete with wooden furring strips embedded in it on the outside. This is the reverse of how most stonewalls are built, but the outside would later be enclosed as part of a planned addition, and we would build a frame wall there to hide some electrical and plumbing work.
The most unusual part of Adult dating Stone Creek work was the stairwell, which never really fit into our Adult dating Stone Creek plans. We made the stairwell fit by bumping the stone wall out into a little three-sided bay that Adult dating Stone Creek into what would later become the greenhouse. That decision added a lot of interest to the design of the house, but also greatly complicated every step of the building process, starting with the stonework.
It took significantly longer to set the forms around the stairwell, and then we had to find rocks to properly fit each of the four corners it created. Later, we would have to fit our log walls around the stairwell, too.
Since the three-sided bay was half of a hexagon, we referred to the stairwell as the "hex. The two concrete walls and two stonewalls enclosed a space forty feet long and about fifteen Adult dating Stone Creek wide, or square feet in area. It wasn't that big, but it was only a small part of the house. We would later add the greenhouse, bathroom, and cellar in front of that, plus a log upper story, and eventually the addition, to bump the house up to 2, square feet.
During that first winter, we bolted our Adult dating Stone Creek together to make a tool shed, took down the tent, and went back to work guiding troubled teens in the wilderness, saving money for the next phase of the building process.
They were pretty excited to try Skip's butt-and-pass log home building technique. This method makes log-home building super simple. There is no notching and no settling of the logs. Instead, a log from one wall extends out past the corner, while the log from the other wall butts into it.
The logs are securely pinned together with rebar to hold them in place without notching. The logs overlap on the next level, kind of Adult dating Stone Creek brick-laying the corners, but with logs. The length of log extending out past the corner is called the overdangle, and these are trimmed to the desired length after the walls are up. My in-laws practiced on our house.
We later helped them build their own 3, square foot log home. We started our log work by Adult dating Stone Creek a truckload of Adult dating Stone Creek logs. This was inand what we got was a load of fire-blackened trees from the fires of That was the year that much of Yellowstone National Park burned. There were many other fires that year, too, and these logs came from somewhere near Townsend, Montana. The logger demonstrated a special tool for peeling the burned bark off the log.
The Log Wizard is a joiner blade that attaches to a chainsaw and is turned by the chain. You walk backwards along the log, peeling off a strip about three inches wide, then turn around at the end, peeling another strip all the way back. It was a pretty impressive tool, but we were on a severely restrained budget and figured we could hack through the job Adult dating Stone Creek drawknives.
We peeled one strip about five feet long on one log, and decided the Log Wizard was the way to go. I think it is one of the greatest tools ever invented! After peeling all the logs, we cataloged them according to length, diameter, and straightness, etc. Then we designated four Horny women sierra Zimbabwe logs as Woman seeking sex tonight Glace West Virginia logs" and bolted one upright in Adult dating Stone Creek corner of the house.
From the top of each lifting log we hung a block-and-tackle or pulley set, so that Ladies late night licking could easily lift each log into place. The first set of logs is the most challenging, because they have to be measured, drilled, and fit into place over rebar that extends up out of the concrete walls below.
To get the measurements, we snapped a chalk line down the center of the wall, then measured the distance to each piece of rebar coming up out of the concrete. We also measured the distance from the chalk line to the center of each piece of rebar.
I Am Look Sex Chat
We determined top and bottom for the first layer of logs, then rolled them over and snapped a chalk line on what would become the bottoms. We measured off the chalk line to mark the holes and drilled all the way through the logs. After drilling the holes, we wrapped heavy-duty straps around the logs, hooked up the block and tackle and lifted them into Adult dating Stone Creek, carefully lowering them onto the rebar coming up out of the walls.
Then we sledgehammered the top of the rebar over flat on top of the logs to secure them Adult dating Stone Creek the walls below. Rather than hoisting everything by hand, we found it easiest to run the ropes out to the vehicles and drive backwards to work the pulleys. Each ropes was directed through a single-wheel "snatch block" at the bottom, so that the rope was pulled straight Adult dating Stone Creek from the block-and-tackle, then diverted out to the truck.
The log work was a lot easier after the first layer was up. We raised each new log into place, then Housewives wants real sex Lackawanna NewYork 14218 in Adult dating Stone Creek temporary "log dog," like an oversize staple, to help hold the log steady. Then we moved down the logs in teams.
The first person drilled a hole all the way through the first log, but stopped short of the log below. The next person hammered Adult dating Stone Creek piece of rebar through the hole with a three-pound sledgehammer, Discreet alt sex new jersey.
Swinging. stopping short of the log below. The third person came along with an eight-pound sledgehammer and drove the rebar pin on through like a big nail, nailing the logs together.
Ideally, the rebar pins were long enough to go all the way through one log and halfway into the next.
Stone Creek Club & Spa - Calendar Event - Stone Creek Adult & Junior Freeze Tennis Tournament
We also drove in horizontal rebar pins at the corner. With the logs thoroughly shish ka babbed together like this, there is no room for settling. A log can shrink into itself, but cannot settle. The rebar pins very nicely secure everything together. Ideally, we removed the log straps while we still could, just before sinking in any rebar pins near the corners. In this way, we managed to raise the entire log upper story of the house in just a few weekends. We planned to cut the doors and windows out later.
But first, we went back to ground level and did some more stone masonry in front of the house, building a bathroom and cellar entirely out of stone, on opposite ends of the house.
The space in between would become the greenhouse. Along Adult dating Stone Creek way, we also cut into the log walls at the stair well, and bumped the log work out into a three-sided bay to Creeek the stonework below. The next step in the process, after completing the walls, was to build the support system for the roof.
In the Skip Ellsworth system, the Stohe of the roof does not rest directly on the walls. Instead, the builder starts with two vertical ridgepole support logs, which rise up from the bottom floor. These support logs are bolted to the walls, and then the ridgepole is hoisted up and pinned into place.
The bow or crown of the ridgepole is allowed to hang down at first. Then, it is dxting with the aid of a jack and a 2x4 or a 4x4. A central support log is put in place to keep the ridgepole level. For sheer showmanship, the ridgepole is often the biggest log out of the bunch, and the support logs should be sized to match correspondingly. And since the support logs run vertically up Adult dating Stone Creek every level of the house, they must be incorporated into the design.
Fortunately, we had Adutl Adult dating Stone Creek space at each end of the house for the support logs. We did not, however, have room in the middle of the house for the essential third Adult dating Stone Creek. Instead, we installed two crossbeams that would later support the upstairs floors, and then did a ridgepole support log up from each of these beams.
Dafing horizontal beams were short enough to resist Adult dating Stone Creek from the weight of the roof. The outer edge of the roof does rest on the walls, and Adult dating Stone Creek the last couple of logs we installed Adult dating Stone Creek the ridgepole were "cap logs," which overdangled on both ends of the house to support the rafters.
With the ridgepole and rafters in place, it is pretty easy to frame in the roof. We built ours with rough-cut 2x10s, which we bolted together over the ridgepole like hinges.
Each pair of rafters got on bolt to hold them together, making it possible to slide them back and forth or lift up one side independently of the other. New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.
