    Far Away

    I love the cabin style homes with a big wrap around porch. Add some swings and rocking chairs with a small table for my southern sweet tea and I'm good to go. We'll have a fireplace inside where we can sit and warm up in the winter and a nice fire pit in the back yard for those...

    Communing With Nature

    Would Love This

    My dream home, honestly.  I can imagine a few of the rooms in my mind's eye.  I'd love to go through all the rooms but I haven't got the time, so for now...One room would have big fluffy cushions and large pillows...no real furniture, maybe a papasan, or a really plushy chair...

    Can You Get There On The Subway?

    I have dreamt of returning to the birthplace of my great-great-grandfather and rebuilding the logging camp near the beaver-dammed creek (now small lake) which is fed by a spring thirty feet behind. The access-road is now overgrown and pot-holed and is quite some distance from a...

    A Quiet Place Far Away From the Madding Crowd...

     The wrap around porch is an important feature. It affords you a serene perch from which to watch both the sunrise and the sunset. Doors from every room lead outside so you never have to disturb anyone when you have the whim to rock in a rocking chair or cuddle up under a...

    Love a Log Cabin

    There are quite a few cabins like this one near my home, the only problem being that the majority of them are on large ranches of 100+ acres which makes them altogether too pricey for me. Someday I'll have my cabin in the woods on a few acres, it's just a matter of time.

    A Dream

    Once at dinner, the kids and I discussed the age-old question of what we would do if we won the lottery. My daughter said she'd want a mansion with a lots of space so we wouldn't have to store the toys in her room. My son said he'd want a regular-sized house, and use the rest of...
