The roof is fastened together with metal screws with a rubber gasket that makes the roof remain waterproof. Installation is over milled strapping 2 foot on center in each rib of the metal roof. The completed roof went up in about just a few hours.

We milled all the roof strapping with our portable sawmill. The log cabin is intended to be used as a sugar shack where we can boil fresh maple sap and turn it into delicious maple syrup. The log cabin is being built on a large track of private land as part of a homestead. We have built other buildings such as the main cabin, the outhouse, the small cube, the root cellar and even dug a pond.
