"There is no way I can let my wife see this photo. She'll drag me off to find a new puppy, and we already have enough animals! Very cute puppy Shelley! Congratulations on the new addition to the family :)"

I would like our cabin to look like this one

"Is it me, or does anyone else see rainbows? Regardless, that looks quite cozy and rustic. A nice refreshing change from the mammoth log homes with cathedral ceilings 40 feet up!"

New Years Resolution

Like most everyone else, I'm making some resolutions this year. The perennial favorite, losing weight, is right up there at the top but I'm going to make it a "get healthy in spirit, mind and body" resolution.

I plan on doing more creative work that I enjoy; writing, photography and music.

And finally, I'm going to start my Log Home Workbook. Never too early to start planning! For Christmas I received a Log Home Living subscription, so I'll be cutting floorplans, articles… Continue

Chantilly Log Home Show Recap

Sunday morning was a good time to go to the Log Home show... when I went it was practically dead, which meant I didn't have to fight the crowds to look at the stuff I wanted to look at. I meandered from display to display, taking my time, and not being jostled or having people step in front of me.

It also meant that I got to spend time talking with the fine folks that run this neighborhood, without competing with others for their attention! I spent a lot of time talking with Donna… Continue

Log Home Show in Chantilly

The Log Home and Timber Show is just around the corner! At least, for those in the Northern Virginia area. Anyone planning on going? (I would expect to see the Log Home U staff there - it's all of what, a mile from your offices? ;-) Anyone want to meet n' greet and say howdy to your fellow Log Home Neighbors?

I plan on bringing my camera - so be prepared to have… Continue

We all love wood. If we didn't we wouldn't be living (or wanting to live) in log homes. I imagine many of you, like myself, love the look, the texture and the smell of wood. From homes to furniture to small accessories, wood is part of our daily lives.

Well...what about a car made from wood? And not just any old, run-of-the-mill car, but a supercar, something that belongs next to the Lamborghinis, Ferrari's and Bugatti's of this world?

Joe Harmon designed and is building… Continue

Shad - i see about 10 things I want for my log home from those pics you posted! It didn't seem like there was as much furniture at the log & timber show in chicago.

Hi Shad,
I hope you all had fun this weekend at the show and I hope you got some pictures!

Thanks! The log cabin idea was mine at first, but my husband is now, i think MORE enthusiastic than I am. I got a little daunted when I realized how many decisions we would have to make.

OK - you watching the game at home did not work. Superstition is a funny thing: My husband and I have been going to one or two games a year for about 10 years. The Redskins lost every game we went to for about the first seven years and then we started taking our kids with us. We haven't been to one losing game since then. We end up spending so much more on the extra two tickets, but are afraid to leave the kids at home! Now I guess we need to make room for you, too :) Taks care - Anne

If you're not out enjoying the weather, I hope you're going to the Redskins/Rams game this weekend - you seem to bring us luck! Anne

Hi Shad! Welcome to the neighborhood! (Where's your photo???) :-)
Let me know what kind of things you'd like to see both in the magazine and online.
