I will be cutting the logs for my small 14x16 cabin on my property this november/december and need some input on the following ideas:
1. Is cutting the logs (white spruce) to around 18-20 foot lengths (14x16 cabin) and then dragging them to the sight with a come-along realistic?
2. I know green logs are HEAVY, but cut into 18-20 foot lengths, am I fooling myself if I think I can drag them myself over snow?
3. If I can't move them, I thought I could cut the branches off the top side, but leave them on the bottom side to keep them off the ground while they dry. Then move them when they are dry and I can bring my brother out there to help. Any thoughts?
Basically, I have the opportunity to begin working on a dream this winter. I have the property, the time off, and the energy. Here's my plan, someone tell me if I'm crazy and maybe offer some suggestions
