Log Cabin

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.

I really do enjoy my house. Sean is working hard to get it completely finished by summer. It is really a nice place...although since I do not enjoy cleaning house 3200 square feet of clutter gets old. It is cold on the second floor, no heat there yet, which is where our bedroom is... 3rd floor gets heat from 1st floor, so it stays warm. I really love it I suppose, will like it better with banisters on stairs, bathroom cabinets, trim, working claw foot tub in my room to soak in! thanks for asking...
