The first home we visited on the Honest Abe Fall Tour of Homes was Matt and April’s log home.
Matt and April were a lot of fun to chat with. See highlights below…
From the Honest Abe Fall Tour of Homes brochure:
This is a timber frame home that is similar to our “Grandfield” floorplan. It features large 8×8 posts and Douglas Fir materials. They ultimately plan to side this home with hardy plank siding.
Some of our favorite things about Matt and April’s Honest Abe log home…
1. The wide-plank flooring (which wasn’t actually in yet, but we looked at samples).
2. The blue tin roof, which they installed themselves!
3. The “prairie-style” windows they chose to use throughout.
4. The porch which takes advantage of the beautiful view.
Thanks, Matt and April, for opening your door (and porch, and roof, and windows) to us. Be sure to invite us to your housewarming party… can’t wait to see your home again when it’s all finished!
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
