The Land we chose for our Log Home

The first step to starting your log home dream is to find land that fits your needs and lifestyle. We chose our land for several reasons:


  1. It had a sloping lot - perfect for building a walk-out basement so we would have added space
  2. It was on a quiet no-wake lake - very conducive towards the "quiet sports" such as swimming, fishing, observing the birds & wildlife. We have an all sports lake next door for when my husband wants to "rip it up!"
  3. The mature trees
  4. The area - very central for our recreational interests (skiing, hiking, fishing, etc.)

Here are images of our property and the lake before our log home was built:

Your lake is absolutely beautiful. Our water is the Hood Canal, a natural fjord that is half fresh water, half salt water, and very, very deep. Lovely to look at, but not nice and calm like yours!

Very peaceful!
We have a crick. Or is it a creek? LOL

If only I had several lifetimes to visit these places.

Just beautiful and great choice.
