Thanks for the kind words. The inside layout is original - I designed the whole thing on my computer then my husband and I built a 3D model. Keep collecting pictures of what you like. I had an album of clippings to show sub-contractors what we wanted, that was invaluable in translating a dream into reality (along with being on site everyday - a must!). Good luck.
Thank you for the kind comments on my photos. So...nothing is stopping you from being a speech-language pathologist/photographer/traveler. I do all of my photography part time and have a store on etsy.com. Don't wait, just start.
Me, too on the log home. I have wanted a log home since playing with Lincoln Logs and drawing log sided a-frame homes when I was 8. The dream seems so far away though. If I can help answer any questions about photography, let me know, I'd be glad to help.
