My husband and I built our log home starting in 2008 its our dream and we love it. We are almost complete and it looks better and better all the time
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?

Almost the end of June

The end of the month is in sight and I am so happy that summer is finally here as of today. The weather has been terrible so far this month with lots of rain. Thankfully we are working indoors to finally complete this log home. I am at the point of painting trim which is so exciting. A few touch ups on some of the drywall to do and I have to paint the interior doors. We found a great log craftsman to help us with our handrails and has agreed to wait for pmt until we get our final draw from the bank. So happy about that because now we can get the handrails we wanted. We are going with the post style that almost every picture of a log home has. Interior handrails and stair rails will be done with diamond willow so I am excited about the final product. Diamond willow is beautiful and it will add so much to our home. We still need to have our acreage surveyed for the lawyer and we will finally be able to say we have completed our log home. We began this whole process in May 2008 and we will be able to say we finished by July 2010!!! Considering we did most of the work ourselves we can be so proud of the finished home its absolutely beautiful and our marriage made it through the process as well. Have to say not sure if we would ever do it again but if someone drove into the yard and offered us more than we owe we might just consider it. They say you can be mtg free after 4 builds - would for sure be nice to be mtg free so who knows ;) Look for the new pictures I will post once we are done and I cant wait to post them for you all to see.

need help with stair rail ideas for inside and outside

We are at the tail end of our log home build. All that is left to do is stair rails inside and outside, interior doors as well as closet doors and drywall the basement. The only problem is we have no money left :( our budget is blown any ideas out there for stair rails at a cheap price. The bank wants us to be done and we do too so any ideas would help. By the way if you look at the few pics I posted today my husband and I built this ourselves and finished the interior ourselves as well. We… Continue
