I have been getting comments on my pictures, but there is no "reply" button.  It would speed me up to just hit reply like a text message - still frustrated.Thanks,Bill WardContinue

Bill Ward - Log Cabin Airport

Profile Information

Tell us about yourself:
My Dad has 100 acres on a river in Wisconsin, and he has built the cabin he lives in, and 2 other log homes. He has been renting the log homes to "the neighbor girl" Judy (also has a page on LHU) and another guy. After subtantial damage to the 2nd rental, Grandpa Doug has set the renter free to rent someplace else. Since Grandpa Doug has an open cabin, we are moving in! Please see the pictures
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
What timeframe are you looking to start your dream home?

Buffalo Decor'

Please help with our decorating! We are just moving into our cabin on the Buffalo River, in Buffalo County Wisconsin. I am a former Mondovi Buffalo - so I would love some Buffalo theme decor in our new (to us) log cabin. Any ideas on where to look?

Thanks, actually the pic was shot on our property. The Little Buffalo runs right through our property. With some huge Beech trees hanging out over the water. Perfect for a big rope swing for the kids. Our property borders the Natchez Trace Reserve, so it is very quiet, with no other  homes around. We can`t wait to finish and move up there.

Thanks for the compliments, we love it..We were thinking the same thing..but we haven`t been able to come up with a theme either. Maybe we will go with a Tennessee theme instead.

Thanks for the welcome. Enjoyed your pics/blog about Log Cabin Airport, complete with log cabins, saloon, barbershop and a bunkhouse. Quite fascinating.  Sorry about that one renter your Dad had to deal
with, but what a blessing in disguise for you guys.

I've a great love for all things rustic, especially cabins. Living in one is still a dream for me, but what a great dream. :)   Stay warm neighbor and have a Happy New Year!

Hi Bill, I'm just waiting till the weather gets good enough to put the roof on the cabin, I'm gonna go with a two materials roof, some type of wood shake synthetic or triple thick architecual on the main house and then wheathering steel/corten rusting metal on all the porch roofs. I think the two materials makes it look really old school. Ive seen them done this way and it s a neat look, I'd love to use real wood skakes because of all the texture they have but I hear they leak easy if not installed correctly, and are alot of maintenance, they are available in a treated wood shake, I would only use one if it was maintenance free. I cant wait for crappie fishing to start, I think we are gonna try Kentucky lake in Aril, home of the monster slabs, take care.

Hi Bill,

We have a family cabin for the summer on Balsam Lake, Wisconsin. We plan to build our luxury log home for my wife, Beth and me in Wadena, MN.

Hi Bill, So did you guys have your annual fly in ? Love to see the pics. By the way, I guess you guys are taking your own trees to the mill, dont they need to air dry for most of one year ?. Also is the mill charging you by the running/linear foot or by the board foot ? I think the board foot is complicated for me to fiqure and seems to me to be really exspensive . I need to have some trees milled as well. Thanks Greg

Thanks Bill, I enjoyed the Lehigh cabin trail site, do u and your dad both fly planes, looked like he had two planes on the farm ? I'd love to fly to my cabin, but planes are way to pricey for me, I do like mini helicopters alot, theres one called the Misquito that comes with a fiberglass body that looks like the real deal only micro, I'd probably kill myself, guess I'll stick to driving to the cabin unless I win the lotto.

Great pictures, Bill. In answer to your question about my painted table: We named our place Big Pine Lodge long before we actually built it. My husband made a wonderful sign (actually featured in Aug. 2009 Log Home Living) and we took an old coffee table and a picture of the sign to a local artist who did a nice job replicating the sign onto the table. It looks like you and your Dad are talented enough to build your own furniture, so the only question is - can you paint? If not, then check your local high school for an art teacher . . .
