The Perfect Log Cabin Retreat

The Perfect Log Cabin Retreat

So many of us have the dream of owning or living on a piece of property far away from the busy and hectic fast pace of the city. There are so many options when it comes time to building a place that it can be difficult to narrow it down to just one idea, when I saw "The Perfect Log Cabin Retreat," I was inspired to think about something similar.

I like the look of a more rustic cabin, something that looks like it has history with a somewhat weathered appeal. This sort of vision calls for using reclaimed wood, and what better way to save money while building a cabin that has character. There's nothing like working with reclaimed wood, its texture, light and color are all visually beautiful, whether it's wood reclaimed from old barns and structures, or reclaimed items from a nearby tear down. There are plenty of resources and websites available to find reclaimed wood, and its something you can start collecting over time.

You can start your reclaimed wood collection by just driving around your area, and getting the word out that you want to use reclaimed wood, once you do you'll be surprised at how many potential places and locations you hear about. There are so many websites where you can find reclaimed wood, and many will even deliver nationwide. Of course one of the reasons you probably considered using reclaimed wood is for the money it will save you, so look on Craigslist, garage sales, and your local neighbourhood for reclaimed wood, you might even offer your time to help with a tear down, in exchange for some reclaimed wood. You can imagine your excitement when you do come across a barn or building being torn down in your area, lots of potential boards and beams for your dream cabin or home build.

Don't worry about collecting too many pieces of wood, as there are so many uses for the wood from reclaimed wood furniture, dining tables, flooring, tables and picture frames, its perfect for all your interior decorating inspirations. Using wood that is reclaimed and recycled is not only a great way to save money but it gives your place a certain charm, and with it a story of all the wonderful places that went into it.
