Betcha it doesn't snow in YOUR living room

I realized the other day that I have only posted pictures of the exterior of the log house we're building. Granted, there's not much inside yet, except for the snow and ice that accumulated before the roof went on. Still, I thought I'd share a bit of what the interior of our home is like now... if only for comparison's sake later.

Looking in through back door before roof trusses were covered with sub-roof.
Johnny and Dad working. Yes, that's snow INSIDE the house.

Bob holding Baby M. He's standing in our dining room. If you squint and tilt your head to the side, you can imagine away the construction equipment and snow and picture the first Thanksgiving dinner I'll serve in that room. Mmmm.... smell that turkey!

One more for good measure.
When we were at The Lake last week stealing old pictures and stoking the woodstove for my MIL, we tromped through the white stuff to make a pilgrimage to our slumbering house. We had experienced one of many teasing pre-spring thaws during the week before, but all the snowmelt had refrozen on the floor of the house, creating a giant indoor skating rink. Here's Baby M's experience walking on ice:
She has her mother's grace.
Stay tuned for more of the exciting saga 'Logs of our Lives' and don't forget to place your bets on when the sap will start running at The Lake.

Yes. Especially if you're not using a log kit. Just the labor to peel the bark off the logs by hand would be prohibitively expensive.

That's why I'm grateful for the Husband -- 'cause I sure couldn't do it or afford to have it done for us!
