Profile Information

Tell us about yourself:
Two years ago at the age of 34 my wife and I purchased a rustic 1940s Log cabin that was in serious need of some attention. The cabin is located in the beautiful Great North Woods of New Hampshire. We have since been slowly restoring the cabin to ensure that it is enjoyed for many more generations to come....
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
No but this is our little getaway. No cell phone reception and we love it that way!
What timeframe are you looking to start your dream home?
