    Dietrich Cabin restoration 2013 Dietrich Cabin restoration 2013 Presentation Transcript

    • Dietrich Cabin Restoration Tim Wilson and his three sons, Gilman City, MO, spent a week during June 2013 at Dietrich Cabin replacing several rotted logs and replacing inappropriate chinking on three sides. Here they are removing chinking.
    • More removal of chinking. They use an air compressor to get the last bits out after it is loosened.
    • Tim begins preparation of a walnut log with a chainsaw.
    • After several cuts with the chainsaw, he hews the log with an old axe.
    • Hewing is hard work!
    • The old axe that Tim uses is his, but one just like it is one of Dietrich Cabin’s artifacts.
    • The newly hewn log on the sawhorses and the rotted log that it will replace in the lower left.
    • News logs in place on the north side of the cabin.
    • New logs on the northwest corner of the cabin.
    • The rechinking process takes time.
    • Tim Wilson and his sons. They have restored log cabins throughout the Midwest and also build new log homes in the traditional way.
