Getting ready to move into the log cabin
















Our log cabin (soon to be log 'home') passed inspection! I am so excited to drive up north this weekend to check it out and bring some things up. Our builder will be out of my clutches for the next couple weeks in Florida. Hopefully when he comes back, the ground will be thawed and the weather will cooperate for our remaining exterior items. I'm sure I'm being overly optimistic on how fast it will warm up...but a girl can dream! I was going through all my "old stuff" at my house that I thought should go up to the cabin (silverware from my bachelorette days, a loon picture, extra kitchen utensils, etc.) But I also want a lot of "new stuff" to christen the cabin. I think my sales have gotten better at work because all I think about is what that commission can buy for the log cabin. And I'm sure my husband and his wallet are getting ready to take cover from me....

Congratulations! Your log home is just beautiful. Our little place is close by, north and west, off Hayes Tower. Hopefully we will have time to look for your place the next time we are up north, probably mid-May.

I'm seriously envious of you - a log cabin in the woods is my absolute dream place to stay.

Your place is awesome - you must enjoy it!

Welcome to Gaylord!! Sometimes I can take for granted where I live and have grown up. Spending 6-years from 1988-1994 working in downtown Detroit, gave me an appreciation from where I was raised, and made the move back in 1994 to raise my children.....and glad I did. Welcome again!!

Congratulations!! How wonderful. My husband is a builder and I am a Realtor so I know how important your inspection and C.O. (Cert. of Occupancy) is. That red sofa is gorgeous. My favorite color.
