Lofty Log Home

“And the tree was happy” - Shel Silverstein “The Giving Tree”  Trees are happy, mostly, aren’t they?  Think of all they do in the world.  They shelter, they provide life, they give and take in oxygen and carbon dioxide.  They give us rest and time to reflect.  They produce.   Trees are unique and wonderful.  Trees change over time while growing, coloring, texture adapting and seasonally evolving.  They see life at many angles and vantage points as they age.  S...

Garage - House - Both

You know the phrase, ‘It’s a bird, it’s a plane....it’s Superman”.  Well, how’s this one? “It’s a garage, it’s a living space......it’s both”!  Did you know that the overhead garage door was invented in 1921?  The auto garage door opener followed in 1926 but took 40 more years to catch on and become a more commonly used tool.  So you already have a garage with your house.  That might suit you fine or it may not.  Perhaps you...

Today’s log homes can be a DIY project, not for the faint hearted, or elegant and custom built, as you will find in this home, HPP 28133 . The home has 1725 square feet, a covered p...

Cottage House Big Possibilities

I think that wanting what one has is a real revelation.  Wanting what one has.  Think about that.    However, it is probably more common to want what you don’t have.  That said, perhaps this house/garage combo can give you both – want what you have, have what you want.  If the house is on a lake, a pond, a small, cozy or tree-lined lot, if it is tucked into a mountain setting or on a quiet country lane where the loudest sounds you’ll hear are buzzing insects and the breeze that stays to chat...
