Oh, those long-ago heady days just before the official start of summer...
June 18, to be specific. That's when I posted a headline here that said: "Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Economy
I defaulted to my optimistic mode and read the economic tea leaves, which, at the time, looked pretty damn good. Unemployment was low. Gross domestic product was robust. And, hey, who ISN'T optimistic when summer is about to start?
Now, the REAL leaves are turning, winter is in the wings, and America's economy is like a mid-size sedan whose power steering and brakes have decided to give out on the road trip to Prosperity Land.
So, I ask you: How has the past month impacted your dream of building a log home? Will it still happen? Have you scaled back your dream? Or is it something that you'll put off for a couple years?
And for those of you already in a log home, how has the economic malaise impacted you?
This is an amazing community of rustic-home enthusiasts, and we're all thoughtful, caring, and quick to share information. Who knows? Maybe we can all offer advice (and solace) to help each other weather the winter of America's economic discontent.
Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for being a part of this community!
