Our Log Cabin Dream – Foundation Layout – 9/4/07
Our log cabin will be located in Romayer, Texas at Artesian Lakes. Jim and I call our building site Zoller Point since it is on a point with the lake on a little more than two sides. This will be a second home for us.
The site was leveled at an angle so that rain would runoff toward the lake. I insisted on keeping my little hill in the top right of the picture. Right now I have a bench up there so I can sit and watch what goes on.
This area was cleared of underbrush so that we can have a place to set the logs, lumber, trucks, cranes, etc. when they come to the location. One of the workmen is at the northeast corner of the future cabin.
Lines are being run to show the perimeter of the cabin. The boards depict the southeast corner of the cabin.
More lines are being squared off for the foundation. And yes . . .that is water in the middle of the picture.
The lines are surveyed and the orange paint will be used to mark the location for the piers.
One of the workmen is assisting in the foundation layout on the northeast corner of the cabin.
I can’t believe work is actually starting! We’ve waited for so long.
