FROM DREAM TO REALITY
A Family Trip down Dreamers Lane
Many people dream of building a log home. Only a few ever do. We have had the privilege and the challenge of experiencing both. In 2011 we attended The Original Log Cabin Homes seminar on building methods. We realized that we were not only capable of constructing our own log home but had a great desire to do so.
Our son-in-law, a licensed contractor and co-owner of CSR Con- struction of NC, Inc., headed up the construction of our cabin and began us on this amazing journey.
Our cabin kit (Blue Ridge ll) from The Original Log Cabin Homes came with 6x8 D logs, windows, all the fasteners and tape needed to erect the walls.
The whole family was involved in this project. We spent many evenings and Saturdays building our dream.
Our home has many custom features including a timber-framed wrap around porch, walnut trim throughout the interior, reclaimed heart-pine beams from a tobacco warehouse over 100 years old, and hand made dining, coffee and side tables. We also installed custom bathroom vanities, also with reclaimed material from the same warehouse.
Throughout the building process, we enjoyed a wonderful relationship with representatives from Log Cabin Homes and especially our sales representative. They were always such a help in answering questions that we
had during construction and eagerly followed our progress.
We’re so excited to have had the privilege of living in our home for over a year now and still find ourselves sitting around and enjoying, reminiscing and savoring every log wall and corner of our beautiful home.
