Their home was actually completed a couple of years ago, but they enjoy having visitors and sharing log home stories with others. That’s why they choose to participate in Honest Abe’s Annual Tour of Homes each year.
BONUS: Melissa’s dad was on hand to explain how he did all of the “finishing work” in this log home. (He does really nice work, too!)
See some examples below…
From the Honest Abe Fall Tour of Homes brochure:
This beautiful D-log style home is a custom floor plan that is tucked away with great views of the surrounding hills.
Three things come to mind when I think about this log home…
1. The big, open floorplan and the big, open windows.
2. The bi-level flooring in the bathrooms, that “hides” the plumbing.
3. The wide open kitchen and curved island with the stove in the center.
…Thanks Matt and Melissa for allowing us inside your log home!
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. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
