    I'm an old man, but I built myself a log house myself.
    Now, I'm building "some structure" on my land.
    Can you determine what it will be?

    Pergola? That's my best guess.

    Way to hump it, btw. Not a bad couple of days work for an old timer. Respectfully.

    Looks like a mega deck to me.

    That looks like old wood, too. It's clever how you pieced the posts together like that for the top beams to sit in a notch there in between them.

    Those are not logs but rather milled lumber and looks pressure treated.

    What I want to know is did you dig actual footings or just lay those concrete block on the ground

    Guys, thanks!
    You have almost guessed right.
    This structure will be Garage + Shed + Loft

    This is not an "old tree", but a board that is covered with oil.

    It looks as if that has been taken down from somewhere else and rebuild there

    A garage/shed/loft... hmmm... will be interesting to see how it turns out. Keep posting pics.

    I've done plenty construction, carpentry myself so I'm interested. But frankly, from the framing you have there, I don't see your plan. No offense, just interested to see where this goes, not to mention your pick says MEMEIT in the upper left corner, like it's a pic of something you just found on the internet.

    Are you bull shittin' us?
