Hi everyone, I'm hoping to build a small log home in southwest Florida where I currently live for retirement. It's easy finding companies that sell log cabins/home kits but not someone who will actually build the thing on my land. Can anyone point to towards an actual log home builder/contractor?  BTW is the difference between log -cabin- and log -home- referring to square footage or something else?Thanks!billContinue

Fly and ladybug heaven. A month or so back I bought a ultraviolet indoor bug zapper. So often I try things such as the zapper that don't work. Well bingo. The flys were gone in two days. We do still get one or two, but the machine makes short order of them. No solution for the ladybugs yet. Open to ideas…Continue
