Log Cabin Ceilings

I like the way the log beams look on the ceilings of our log cabin. I love laying in bed and looking up at the ceiling at the perfectly spaced beams. They have individual characteristics with their coloring and knot holes. The best part is they are very useful and can be used with your log cabin decor. The 2 main level bedrooms have rustic bronze lights hanging from the middle beams drawing attention to the architecture of the logs. We hung our kitchen track lighting on one log beam. The lights point in different directions highlighting different areas in the cabin. On the beam of our loft are 2 ceiling fans. However, one fan is over 20 feet from our 2-story living room floor. How are we going to change that light bulb??

LOL on the light bulbs!! seriously, how will you change them though?? I also love being in bed and looking up at the ceiling. There is a very grounded feeling to it...very earthy. Glad you are feeling at home.

I have the same problem. Be sure and update when you figure out something easier than an 20 foot ladder!

I watch the maintenance men in my mall do it regularly. They use a long pole that has an attachment on the end that holds the bulb. They reach up with the pole, grab the bulb, unscrew it. Then simple reverse the process with a new bulb. I'm sure you can get one at a hardware store.

Reliv - no kidding on those light bulbs!

Sandy - thank you!

Jennifer - I just keep staring at the ceiling thinking I should never turn on that light!

J - THANK YOU! I'm headed to the hardware store this weekend. Wish me luck!

It doesn't matter what direction you look in.... it's beautiful all around, even the ceilings!

Jess - I can't stop looking at the ceilings and being amazed on how the builder put it all together!

I use my track lighting sparingly - it's way up there too.
Thank goodness for hubbies!
