Cordwood in Oregon

Don Noe built two beautiful cordwood structures in Oregon. His hybrid shed with the cordwood 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 planning to use them for firewood, the stone, windows and wood siding were also recycled. Don Noe's Cordwood shed in Oregon 2The building below is a worm farm. Look at these magnificent door hinges and the Western Red Cedar doors.  The bottle brick and cordwood masonry is also very well placed. 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.
