Schematic Outline Village Restorations & Consulting uses a numeric and alpha system dividing the structure into four sides, in this case a one story log cabin and each log is numbered sequentially. Sides are designated as front, back, left and right. F being front, B is Back, R is the right handed side of the building and L is the left handed side of the building. Lettering designation is determined by standing inside the cabin and facing what is considered the entrance. In this case for explanation purposes the cabin entrance is the doorway that was used by the patrons. However we do not believe that this was the original entrance used by the troops and for future erection purposes one may want to consider that point. There are two other doors which were not used. Both of which are located on the side of the building where the furnace was located. We believe that this side may have been the original front and is therefore designated as such and logs are marked with an F on this side. The entrance that is used by patrons is marked with an R since this is the right side of the cabin if one was standing inside and facing the front. Logically the opposite wall of the front and in this particular case the dormer and fireplace side is marked beginning with the letter B for back. Because there is an actual offshoot room containing the fireplace we also deignated those logs as beginning with D for dormer. The wall that is opposite the R wall (the side that the patrons used) is marked beginning with the letter L. Numerically logs are also marked going from bottom to top and reading from Left to Right. Tags are always placed as close to the corner as possible. This positioning helps when determining how to place the log on its original notch. The bottom log also known as the sill is considered #1. Top logs are known as plates. In some cases and in the case of this cabin in particular there are several sill logs where corners were rotted. In cases where the sill log is rotted away completely then the first visible log would start the tag process with its designated side letter and the next number. For example if the first log is rotted and not visible then the #2 log would be the first log numbered however it would still retain the number #2 since the number sill log would ultimately be replaced. In the case of the 314 th cabin we found one sill log that was almost non-existent. This log does however have a tag at the corner and is marked on the inventory as rotted. In normal circumstances to raise the height of a cabin we would add courses of logs matching notches, species etc. If Fort Meade decides to raise the ceiling height of the 314 th cabin. We would suggest adding the course of logs at the top of the door before the gable logs begin, following with those courses around the perimeter of the building. This would prevent interference with height of door openings etc. Additionally in regards the numbering system, if a log that is interrupted with an opening such as a door or window opening but continues its run then the remaining portion(s)of the log is broken into segments of the same letter and number of the log followed by A, B, C and so on allowing for openings of windows and doors. For example the first bottom log facing the entrance would be R1 for Right and the first log. If this log is interrupted by the door opening then the other side of the door that same log would Continue but be marked R1A. In theory if that log is interrupted again it would read R1B and so on. A legend for the cabin components is included in the package.
