Log cabin construction class set for May in Palmer

The result of the last workshop is on display at the Matanuska Experiment Farm.

SNRAS is offering a log cabin building workshop May 16 to May 31 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (with one day off after every 5) at the Matanuska Experiment Farm, 1509 Trunk Road, Palmer.

Robert W. Chambers, world-recognized authority on handcrafted log home construction, will lead the sessions on how to build with green logs. Basic procedures and techniques will be described and practiced to help even the novice get started with a project.

Cost is $1,200 for a ten-day class on building log walls and $500 for a four-day class on building roof trusses. The cost to take both classes is $1,400. Contact Valerie Barber, director UAF Forest Products Program, 907-746-9466. The workshop is sponsored by SNRAS and UAF Cooperative Extension Service.
