Build a home in ten days? Using William Castle's fast timber-framing method, that's all it took to put up the shell of this cabin for Castle's daughter.

Building this log cabin was a family project nearly 30 years ago.
This building technique uses an “insulation sandwich,” which is energy-efficient.
Although these logs look round, they’re milled flat on one or two sides.
Joints are secured with half-inch lag screws.
Castle uses thick slabs of wood cut on a custom-built mill to create artistic furnishings.
Pollywogg Hollër, built by Bill Castle and his family, has grown from one cabin into an “eco-retreat.”
Much of Castle's woodworking art is done by hand.
Castle's work includes custom carving.
