"Did you do the work yourself? I have to do the same thing on the same syle cabin. Mine is also red.  Any tips would be great."

Hi Denise,
Thanks for your comment about your cabin! I'm assuming it's the beautiful red one in your profile picture -- you sound very proud of it!

I noticed you're located in Michigan, and I'm curious whether you're familiar with or participate in Log Cabin Days, headed up by Virginia Handy and the Log Cabin Society in Sodus, Michigan. She's in the process of organizing the 24th annual celebration, which occurs each year on the last Sunday in June and includes a road tour of 100 different historic cabins across the state. I just spoke with her last week, and I'm sure she'd be very interested in learning about yours. Check out her web site at, and keep an eye out for an article on the event in the June issue of Log Home Living.

Enjoy your living legacy!

Planning a working week-end at the cabin. Still furnishing and while Pat is in Denver "playing" with our grand-children, I get to assemble bunk beds and an island top at the cabin. We are trying to maintain a simple existance there but you still have to have the basics. My biggest challenge was purchasing mattresses for the bunks. I wanted them to be comfortable but not so much so that guests became long term. Would you call that selfish? I hope that at some point we all can get together for coffee. What agency does your husband work with. I started out my career with JEMS ambulance out of Jackson before moving on to other work and agencies. We too, follow the festivals and did find the Traverse magazine which has become our cabin bible. I plan to spend some time just enjoying a fire in the wood burner but have been admonished that the work gets done first! For some reason a fire is enjoyable but also an absolute ambition killer. I wonder if I can expect snow,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Hi Denise - yes this is our land, this should be the view from the deck when we have built the cabin.

Hi Denise - yes, Jerry is very friendly and really cares about craftsmanship. I am glad he was so helpful to you.

Hi Denise - welcome to the neighborhood. I saw your blog and you are doing great! I am going to start one too - but so far no house - just land. Love your photos - I want to sit in those chairs at the lake too! We'll be Michiganders also - but Yoopers. Our escrow just closed on Lake Superior property. Dee.

Hey, Just so you know, I just changed my name to Denise R (so I wouldn't get confused - while I learn how this site works).

Hi Denise, Thank you for the comments! I love your older cabin - here is a picture of our 50 yr old (approx) 850sqft. cabin. It was hand built from trees on the property. We also have interesting plumbing and well stories. We recently decided to build another cabin on the same property - larger, with room for more guests and possible retirement, one day. I do love the charm of an old log cabin and yours looks to be in great shape! The cabinets in the new cabin are knotty pine. Take care ~ Anne

Hi Denise, Thank you for your comment. The photo was taken in Colorado, one of my favorite places to be.
