Lipstick on a pig

Let the fun begin!

Alright! I can't wait to get going on my log home. I'm in love with the owner built log home, and I love the scribe fit homes. First... I have to get through what's some of the scariest things to me -- finances.

I've known that I've wanted a log home for a long time. I'm not exactly positive what the acorn that sparked it was. Maybe it was the Lindal Cedar Homes Dream Book that my father had when he considered building one, or maybe it was the cool home our family friends had in the… Continue
