I am slowly putting together our little family room at the log cabin. When we were first looking at the log home floor plans, I always envisioned a cozy seating area. The basement would become the recreation / entertaining room. And one thing we have come to realized as we've sat in this family room, looking out at the lake, trees and birds - we don't need a t.v. in this room. The conversation is good enough and the view is more than enough adequate entertainment. Last weekend I witnessed a juvenile eagle splash his claws into the lake to grasp a fish. There would've been no program on t.v. at that moment that was better than seeing nature at its best.
But less you think I'm totally against a t.v. being at the cabin - I am letting my hubby put one in the basement so he doesn't miss his Detroit Lion's football games!
