In my limited understanding of history I have had the impression that the native peoples who used the Adirondacks predated French Louie, and may have had different methods of doing things in those earlier times.

Zach,
Of course I agree that the native people predated our early settlers, and they may have used other means to build their dwellings.
Old photos and literature suggest that the early ADK folks used Hemlock bark to use for roofs on their homes.

Back on the lean to project. Was waiting for some nice fall weather. So much for that. Roof next and if the weather cooperates I will get a coat of sealer on everything. Chinking will be done in the spring.
