It seems we have always dreamed of owning a log home, but the cost has always stopped us.  So last year I went on a 5 week log building course here in New Zealand.  As you can see I learned heaps.

A year ago my wife Clare and I went down to a forest an hour south of Alex and selected our trees, which were duly cut and delivered last February.  We then set to work peeling them with the help of the world wide Wwoof organization.  Exactly 3 months later the last of 165 logs were peeled and we had a party.

We started the build last July and hope to have the log work finished by the end of Feb this year.  Then we start the concrete work and after that shifting the whole lot over.  Fortunately we now have a crane on loan for as long as we need it!  A huge convenience and cost saving!

I hope our efforts will be an inspiration to others who dream the dream, but can't afford the cost.
