A decision. One has been made.

Imma build me a cabin. Oh wait, excuse me. It's a log home. Because I'm fancy.

These are pictures of ones my father built in the Smokey Mountains last year. Take these, add another level, and stretch them out about twenty feet all around, and that's what I'm putting up.

Sadly, I will not have a red pool table as this area will be Silas's bedroom and I hear that they're very uncomfortable for sleeping. I will have cool rails made out of sticks though. I'm going to go pick some up out the woods this afternoon. also sadly? not kidding. that's how you make them

Please ignore furniture that doesn't look right. Mine will be nicer. Also ignore green cabinets. My father hand crafted those and they are gorgeous. But the green? not so much with the gorgeous.

I'm considering a zip line from the loft down to the living area.

Now all I need is a building permit and lots of sticks.

This sounds amazing! Especially the zipline. I bet you wont have any trouble getting Silas down for breakfast in the morning.

This is awesome! And is it going to have a mountain view?

I am SOOOO salivating. Excellent choices (including no green cabinets but yes to zip line). WOW, girl. In about two years, you'll stop, exhale, and think, "All this happened for a greater good.'

I'm crazy jealous. Okay, envious. That sounds nicer.

But seriously, I want a log home more than I want flat abs, and that's a lot. Beautiful. And congratulations!

Wow! What a good decision, such a wonderful style.

Zip line, oh yeah! From the bed to the hot tub, that would be me.

Can't wait to see yours!

Nice house you have made along with your father.
If you are putting your hearty effort then i will definitely good.

Wow, I want a cabin with a zipline! Maybe look into the combination stairs/slides though, slightly more practical!
