Today's picture is another one from Montana showing an old log cabin. From the looks of the doors, I am wondering if it was converted to a barn or garage.
From the comments yesterday, it sounds like I am not the only one who has dreamed of living in a log cabin, and I am not the only one who decided against it because of maintenance issues. As I mentioned yesterday, we opted for a rock house instead. Our home is all rock on the outside, and it has a metal roof, so it is really very low maintenance. The only maintenance are the wood columns on the porch/balcony. They need to be painted once a year. One day I will figure out how to redo the columns where they still look good, but are in some other lower maintenance material.
