Good day for relaxing at the Log Cabin

Today was just a great day to relax at the Log Cabin. Had a simple meal and some wine out on the deck while looking out at the lake. There was a nice breeze in the air. The grosbeak was posing for us. The cat was enjoying the sunshine.

And all log cabin projects were put on hold today. Just a good day to relax....

More staining photos of the logs

Here are a few more photos of our newly stained log home. Sun was shining a little too bright in these but I think you get the picture. And I am just noticing that we have to take the stickers out of the loft windows. Work is just never completed on a log home....but I am very thankful!

The Cabin is stained & the fox needs a home!

In the end, it was all about time. Originally we had thought about staining the log home ourselves or doing shared labor with our builder to save money. But then Greg was traveling a lot for work and we felt under the gun with the weather exposure to the logs. Thus Randy (our builder) and his crew power washed, treated and stained the logs over a course of 5 days. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief - our logs are protected and it's starting to look more like a log home. Now we have our other projects - landscaping, decorating, finishing the basement, carpeting the loft, etc. and oh yes....where to place my husband's STUFFED FOX WITH A PHEASANT IN ITS' MOUTH!!

The sun was not cooperating with this photo. Hope to post better ones soon!

Here's the deck view. And the deck floor still needs to be finished..... (hint, hint Randy!)

Do you have a home for him??

What to place on the loft ledge?

See this nice ledge outside the top loft railings? Doesn't this look like a nice place to put "something"? (Maybe some greenery, or more wooden Loons, etc.? Or maybe at Christmas some small lit trees?) I'm not a knick knack person and I like to keep our log cabin very clean and open but..... The hubby has started talking about placing his STUFFED FOX WITH A PHEASANT IN ITS' MOUTH on this ledge! And if I don't like that - then in his words "maybe we can put it on one of the decorative log beams?" No, no, no! I already agreed the deer could "go somewhere in the living room but let me think about it honey" (it still hasn't been hung) - but I'm thinking the stuffed fox can go in the basement once we finish it as a recreation room. What do you think? (I have to take a photo of the fox for you and will post tomorrow.)
