Cordwood in Oregon by Don Noe

Don Noe’s beautiful cordwood shed in Oregon. This shed with the cord wood wall was built with 90 percent construction scrap. It was  timber framed with timbers from large machine crates. The logs  came from an arborist who was going to use them for firewood.  Don Noe's Cordwood shed in Oregon 2Look at these magnificent door hinges and the red cedar doors.  The bottle ends and cordwood work is also very artistic.Don Noe's Cordwood shed in Oregon 1 The shed with the cord wood wall was built with 90 percent construction scrap  timber framed with timbers from large machine crates.
