This looking out the front window, right into the apple tree and the grape arbor. I'm thinking some bird feeders are in order here. The porch, of course, will have some rockers and probably a resident pair of binoculars.
And this is the side facing northwest; it's about 16 feet long. Windows and doors have a couple advantages: they allow us to use some shorter sections of log which helped to make use of the ones with bad places in them, and it also made it a lot easier on the log lifter!
I love the way the logs come together in the corners. The handwork of men 200 years ago or more has stood the test of time.
I need to get out under the apple tree to take a picture of the room from outside. I was busy cooking yesterday while the guys worked--first a good breakfast of eggs, grits, fried apples, bacon, cider, coffee,toast; then dinner of beef stew, bread and apple pie. Someone has to feed the crew, right?
Next post, I'll catch you up on all the storytelling last week. And then there was the canning I did, and news about my antique mall booths...several posts, coming up!
