And... onto the front side.
Hmmm. You want me to peel this huge pile of logs with a scraper on a stick? It turns out it’s called a bark spade and it’s the thing. I managed 4 big guys this morning, then we scribed and cut out and laid the first log in the second layer so that’s exciting. 50 to go. #loghouse #lockdownloghouse #inshriach
We aren’t open for sales here at inshriach but if you are local and fancy a bottle then pop down to the farm shop at Rothiemurchus, it’s had a revamp is is full of the good stuff! Repost from @rothiemurchus using @RepostRegramApp - The Farm Shop proudly stocks some of the finest local food and drink, including ultra-local Inshriach gin, distilled literally just around the corner. Inshriach is carefully crafted using ingredients - spring water, juniper, rosehips and Douglas fir - entirely sourced from our valley, the botanicals harvested by hand only when they’re perfectly ready. The Original 43% is produced in small batches of 500, and Navy Strength 57% in batches of only 250. We also stock some of the delicious Inshriach gin liqueurs and infused gins - only ever produced in very special limited runs. #scottishgin #ginlovers #ginlovers🍸 #botanicals #shoplocal #buylocal #eatlocal #drinklocal #localgin #gindistillery #aviemore #cairngorms
One roof done. As in finished. Not leaking like a sinky ship. Also completely lovely piece of work. Phew.
The first layer of the loghouse is together. The digger is a total bonus because space is tight, the logs are really heavy and start off half way down the farm drive and someone has to look after the kids so there is often only one of us chipping away. #loghouse #shedoftheyear
Hoping to get the first layer of the loghouse down today and get going on the second and third. Only 51 logs to peel, 168 ends to scarf and 162 notches to cut. Or something like that. Plus any we get wrong. It’s going to be strenuous. #loghouse
But first, let’s fix this thing.
There’s going to be a whole lot of this over the next few months. #loghouse
Another smasher of a sunset up in the highlands
Lockdown project loghouse has landed.
Time for a tiny mechanical resurrection. This Honda z50 monkey bike has been at Inshriach since 1986 but hasn’t run in 12 years... Time to rebuild it for the next generation to get a shot.
Big guns have arrived. #loghouse
