Dogs love log cabins. They especially love the outdoor adventures that come with owning such a home and our dog Scout is no exception. We have been taking her boating on our small lake and enjoy watching her act like she's captain of the ship. She is also the official squirrel patrol leader. Many a bird feeder has been protected by our ever faithful dog. Dogs and log cabins just go together.

After 7 years in our log home, we finally finished the basement! Well I take that back, it's about 80% finished. We need to put up the ceiling and add more furniture but for the most part it's ready!
Our log home was built on a sloping landscape so we added the walk out basement which greatly increased our living space. I can't tell you how nice it is to sit on this couch and view the lake - it's frozen but it's still a lake view. :-)
In other news we have ventured back into the log home business. The economy is picking back up in Michigan and there are still great deals for land to build on in Northern Michigan. If you are interested in a log home, please visit our website at www.bearcountryloghomes. We would love to help you make your log home dream a reality.

We've had over 113 inches of total snow fall so far in the area where our log home is located. Right now I feel like I am working for the propane man and the snow plow man! Though I do have to admit it is pretty and I've enjoyed the powder for snowshoeing and skiing. How is winter in your area?

Everything is nice and green in northern Michigan. We are reaching the tail end of the bird migration. I am so happy to have some of my feathered visitors back - especially the Rose Breasted Grosbeak pictured below. Though I do have to say that these birds are one of the biggest pigs at the feeder. I swear one of them has been sitting on my feeder for the past 5 hours munching away!
How are things in your neck of the woods?

It's been so long since I've posted. Life gets busy and then time gets away faster than you know it. This weekend we got to spend a long weekend at the cabin. We received about 3 inches of snow and Scout was in doggy heaven! I'm looking forward to breaking out the snow shoes!
