Ever since I was a little girl, I have been in love with log cabins. I’m not really sure if it is the rustic look, the homey feel, a combination of both or if its perhaps my cottage-country upbringing, but…regardless of the reason, I find a log home very appealing. Its warm, secure, and always seems to have that ‘smell’, that makes you want to take a big breath, stretch, and then plop down on a big leather hunter lounge chair.

Although there are surely things about living in a lob-cabin that may have its challenges, its really important to focus on all of the great things that you and your family can enjoy!! Things like lob cabins being relatively inexpensive to build, are very insulated, on a global-carbon-imprint scale, are greener, have an overall Prestigious and beautiful aesthetic appeal, are Energy efficient with conventional heating and air conditioning, and of course provide that overall sense of ‘cozy’, ‘warm’, ‘relaxing’.

I have to say that having a log home may not be maintenance free, but it is still a romantic choice.Upon further reflection, I also think I figured out another reason why I love log homes.

My grandfather, Opa, worked in or owned a lumber and building supply company during most my life. Opa was a whiz with numbers and could calculate things in his head that would boggle most people. Many weekends and summer vacations I would be with him as he tallied up all the lumber in the warehouse…in his head.

Do you think I was impressed back then? Heck yeah and I still marvel at his wonderful mathematical brain. Opa gave me the confidence to not be intimidated of numbers. Hours spent playing with the adding machine and pretending to keep records in the ledger books, inspired me.

So on those walks through the warehouse, not only did Opa leave an indelible impression on my young mind, but the smell of all that lumber permeated every cell in my body. The earthy, clean smell of wood is intoxicating to my senses. Nothing can compare to the feel and look of lovingly polished wood in a piece of furniture or as part of a log home or log cabin.

Romantic? Yeah. I’m still totally enthralled with a log cabin and still have a lovely image of being stretched out on a big fluffy rug in front of a blazing fireplace in the middle of a cozy log cabin home.
