Almost the last Notch?
We got out the old hammer and chisel again the other day, to make a notch for a rafter in the window buck/wall end that will create a transition between the cob and an opening window.
You can see that we've already treated the bottom of the log (and sliced one side off so it's flat) with varnish, so that the moisture in the cob that it will be burried in won't hurt the wood. The rest will get varnished as well.
Turns out the back door lack of steps makes a good spot to work on an angled notch
yes, my clothes are dirty, but their my work clothes! I don't always look like that!
