The past few days I have been reading a blog listed in the "blogs of note" column. It is the story of people building a log cabin. You can check it out at http://logcabininmichigan.blogspot.com/
It reminds me of lots of things back when we started this house. Sean went to a log building school in Washington, and came home ready to go! He told me we would be living in our house in 3 months at the longest. Looking back, I wonder why no red flag went up for me. I guess I forgot that he is a perpetual under-estimator of time! Anyway, we boxed up everything we owned except about 5 sets of clothes each and necessities and put it all in storage. To make a long story short, it was 4 years before we saw most of the things from that storage unit! It was a rough few years. I found out I was pregnant with #3 in a port-a-potty!! Anyway, at this point, living here, with lots of equity, I suppose it was all worth it. Well, maybe not all, but most of it anyway.
