Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Very nicely done. Those shelves adjacent to doors is very handy feature - nice to put stuff down to manipulate door mechanism. I wish I were talented enough to build the same for a ranch cabin build. An 8' x 10' with covered front porch would be awesome !
Cordwood construction is very straight forward - we built one using the discarded butt ends of telephone poles, cut off before they were creosoted (we got them free to haul off). That was about 30 years ago and the building still stands. We did the thing with the bottles too, creates nice high-lites.
The other thing to note CW is that oriented this way, end-on, and with the mortar, the cordwood won't burn - it's highly fire resistant. Something to think about in PG&E land.
Lots of thermal mass too.
I'm always surprised that those don't develop lots of cracks as the logs expand and shrink.
One word, termites. Maybe they don't have them there.
