I am considering two ideas. One is to build a large log arch over the driveway to my cabin. Ground is low and drilling a hole and putting them into the ground around 5 ft will not last that long I am afraid. I have considered buying some of the plastice foot holds that start out around 4ft in diameter and tapper down to around 18inches or smaller with rebar or steel pipe coming out of of them. then drilling log, sliding it on and then run support cable out.
Your thoughts and ideas.
Second is I want to add two more cabins to the propety over the next two years. My current cabin sits off the ground about 10ft due to occasional high water as this year when the creek floods..would the same thing work for a pilar foundation? It would have to be at a min 8ft off the ground before I built the platform.
Cabin size will be 16x20 or 16x24. single story with half loft even possibly just single floor without loft. 6 or 8in D logs.
Thanks..look forward to any ideas, pictures or links to what might work.
