My name is Julie. I am married to a wonderful man. His name is Mike. We have two grown children who are married and each have three children. The joy of being grandparents is just wonderful!
Mike built our log cabin all by himself...He cut the logs and brought them home. Together we peeled the logs and set them aside for a few years to season them. Later we had them sawed and began to build our dream home. That was in 1982! We still haven't completed our home but we keep working away at it!
We are both Christians and love the Lord and enjoy sharing our faith with others. Looking forward to getting ideas from others for our cabin!
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
Yes!! Husband built it in 1982...

Good day, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(firstname.lastname@example.org) for the full details.
Julie, you all have done a wonderful job with the log home. My husband and i have built a cupple of homes ourself, But not with logs, i am sure that logs are much challageing than just timber frame. But i do hope to have a log home someday.Problem wont do it ourselves. So my hat is off to you guys. The home is beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Alice
Thanks Julie Ann, nice note. Yes, this Caroline person posted the same strange message to many people, it's all that's on her page. I think the blog administrator should be aware of the potential risks, not sure who that it though.
My father-in-law returns back to Oklahoma from Maine today. He is with Katahdin Cedar Log Homes and went up to have a look at the mill in Oakfield. With our temperatures in the low 70*'s today, I'd venture to say he'll be glad to be back home!
There are definitely a lot of good log home stains out there. we are biased towards Sansin stains. Sashco and Permachink also have very good products. We've used all 3 of them. Sashco and Sansin both make a good log cleaner too to use before you stain. Our humidity in Oklahoma summers (esp in the Lake area where we're at) is extremely high. For this reason, Sansin SDF stains seem to hold up the best.
Hi Julie! Thanks for your kind comments! I love the photos of your log home - so cozy and inviting! Your Christmas decoration photos were my favorite. Log homes are the best settings for celebrating Christmas in my opinion! Welcome to log home u and thanks also for visiting my blog. Shelley :-)
