I have twenty acres in Central Fla. No cypress, some pine, mostly different species of oak (water and live). Can I mix species? Just building a one room cabin. Build high off the ground? Extend roof to protect logs? Was very thick woods,so leaves and branches are way high. Trees are straight and tall. (fought for canopy). Seems such a waste to have to buy logs when I have so many trees. Can I make these trees work, somehow. I'm 62 so I don't need it (log cabin) forever.


Yes, you could mix the species, but they may take the stain differently. You could stain with a solid color to avoid this problem, and it will hold up better for you in Florida. They will need to be pretty straight to use for cabin poles.
