Natural Resource consultant. Building a log cabin on the northslope of the Uinta Mtns in Utah.
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
Building now
Here it is mid-August and finally getting some things completed. We got deck rails up and will begin staining them this weekend.

Contractor finished inside stairs and all I can say is WOW! The top stair is 7-feet wide. Why 7-feet? Original stairs were only 32-inches to fit between second floor support logs and code required minimum of 36-inches. My contractor said it was his fault and would build a STAIRCASE to be proud of - at no costs. Kind of a sweeping stair you would see in some southern mansion.

Next step(s): Contractor to chink and stain inside, rough-in plumbing, and get 4-way inspection. Then we finish inside: custom cabinets for kitchen and bath on order, tile shower and bathroom floors, carpet bedroom, put down floor in living area, get wood-burning stove (on order) installed - then final inspection and certificate of occupancy.

Hope to have all this done by end of September.

After 2+ years we are finally done. Had our final inspection on Tuesday, August 3rd, and everything went great. As the building inspector said: "Now your work really begins".

I have posted some new pictures of our finished living-kitchen-dining area. Of special note are the bamboo floors, they have turned out exceptionally well. Quite durable, cheapter than hardwood or pine, and a renewable resource. Made by Home Legend and we got them at Home Depot.

Now it's…

Christmas cards

With the Holiday season coming soon, how many are using their cabins as a backdrop for their Christmas cards.

Here is the one we are using.

Hi Wes,
Thanks for the kind words! Your cabin is beautiful, and I'm glad it had a chance to be featured. Let your friends and family know it will be on newsstands through May 17, so they still have a few more weeks if anyone wants to pick up a copy of their own.

Good luck getting the snow to melt! I know you're ready to start your spring and summer in your new place. Congratulations and I'm glad you enjoyed the feature.

Best wishes,

Thanks again for sharing your home with us.

Hi Wes,
I live in Morgan County and I have been in Manor Lands several times since summer. I helped build a home there for some folks from Ogden. I am a log home dealer with Real Log Homes and my own home is a log. Been in it for 15 years and love every minute.

Love your Christmas card Wes! been looking on-line for Christmas cards with a log home on the front and haven't come across any yet. Since I don't yet live in a log home I'm going to keep searching. Yours is much nicer than what I'll end up with.

Hi Wes,

I wasn't sure if you could put two Jack Russell boys together or not? I am woundering if it is easier with 1 or 2 dogs?
Please give me advise!!!!

Hi Wes,

I love your pictures! I notice you have a couple of cute Jack Russell's. I have one too! He is a smooth haired and white & back markings. On his back he has Mickey Mouse Face.
Spunking dogs but you got to love them!!!!!
His name is Rascal and it fits him to a tee!!!

Very cool! Thanks for being so prompt too. I also liked your rifle and your four-legged in the second pix. It does indeed look well thought out and cozy.

Thanks for the input on corner fireplaces, Wes. Got a picture of the end result for me you could leave on my page? I'd appreciate it greatly.
