["This one is built around a 5 inch square base"]
After assembling three log cabins of different sizes I settled on one-size-fits-all for the next five. Easy kap-easy. I could have done twenty but I wanted to be done by Christmas!
base = 5 inch square (about 1 inch thick)
logs = 12 @ 5 inches long, and 12 @ 8.5 inches long (all about 1 inch thick)
faces = 2 triangles, 7 inches wide and 3.5 inches high, with roof pitch @ 45 degrees
roof panels = 2 @ 9 by 6 inches (about 1 inch thick)
roof ridge = 10 inches long, about 1 inch square
Sand, assemble and paint as you please. However, before you do anything, go buy a bag of 1 1/2 - 2 inch nails.
["With a standard plan, they're pilin' up quick"]
Please let me know how it works out.
