Index to Construction Journal Entries

The Construction Journal is a weekly record of Paul's activities working on the log house. It is fairly lengthy, so this index is intended to help you find your way through it, or into it, to read about some specific subject. If you wonder what any terms in this journal mean, please consult the glossary.
