As part of my job as editor of Log Home Living, I've been lucky enough to travel across North America and step inside scores of log homes of all sizes. Truth is, each one was memorable and had an impact on me.
Why don't I feel that way about most conventional homes I visit?
About a year ago, I wrote about the passing of my old golden retriever and how dogs make a home, even new pooches
who insist that the castle is theirs.
But there has to be something more, right? Why do homes crafted from wood---whether they're full log or not, or even hybrid with posts and beams----stir something in us?
What is it? Why are log homes different? Why do they tell family stories and histories better than others?
What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear what it is about log homes that (gulp) make them seem like they have souls of their own...
Bring it on.
