Reviewing the progess of the Log Home

During the of building our log cabin (a.k.a. log home now!) - I documented the progress with close to a thousand photos. It is great to look back and see how it all came to life and also all the fun memories. It's still amazing to me how the crew unloaded and stacked the logs - especially as they reach the loft level during the major winter storms in Gaylord. I hate heights but I would climb the ladder to be in the center of the building process and watch the logs go up. My husband was harrassed by me every Friday at 4:00 with the questions "what time are you leaving work? What time can we leave for the log cabin?" As I'm getting ready to piece all these photos together in an album, I realize what a fulfilling family history that Greg and I have embarked upon and how my stepson will be able to look back and recount it with his own family one day. We are creating memories.

Thanks Sandy - I feel "alive" when I'm there!

Jen - thank you - I'd like to see a slideshow of your place too! Also- did you check out that log home neighborhood - so many great log photos/stories there. You should post a page there! :-)

Hi Reliv - I hate that picture of myself but I like the fact that I'm "holding" the log. (Actually - 2 of the construction crew members are holding each end for me.)

Hi Shelley,

Glad you liked my "Falcon can full of flowers!" We got a lot of work done today on the addition to the store. I will post some more pics soon. I just watched your slide show and the house is just breathtaking. I love the hardwood floors, it looks so beautiful. You have done an amazing job. I too liked your photo! Nice to see you in person!
