Author Roy Rob and his wife, Jaki, built their home with cordwood construction using the age-old technique of cordwood masonry to construct the main living quarters and outbuildings on their homestead in West Chazy, New York.
Mortared, square log-ends called quoins provide stability and structure, while preserving the character of this hand-hewn home.
