My mini house I have been working on - pictures

This is a log cabin that I have been working on. I ought the "logs" from a home improvement center. It was by the full sized door casings, etc. The "logs" came in 7 foot lengths and I cut each one. They are half rounds. Flat on one side.  I think I might have gotten a little smaller ones but I like the way they turned out. I still have one side to do, but I have to decide on a door yet. I also have to stain or paint them. I noticed a few came loose on the ends so I will have to glue and clamp them down until they dry. It was so nice to work in the sunroom where I can look out at the flower beds. he last 2 days were so nice and things are starting to bloom. Early this year, but I am so glad to see color. Winter is always long. Anyway here are the pictures. I hope you like what I am doing so far. Teresa


  1. It's going to be fun to watch it 'come to life' Teresa, and how nice that you can work on it while enjoying your spring garden.

    It is like winter here in Sydney today, only about 16 degrees and for here that is very cold, it seems especially so because it's been mid 20s mostly. So, the idea of a nice log cabin fireplaces is very appealing right now!

  2. Felicidades, te ha quedado una cabaña preciosa.

  3. You've done great work with this cabin, really interesting to see how it evolves :) We have also a fab weather here, actually too hot as it's everyday over 30 degrees in the sun so gardening is a bit pain.

  4. Thank you. I am having fun with it. It looks like rain today. I hope it holds off until I get to work. Seems like I have been running into work trying to stay dry lately. LOL. But I can't complain as the weekend was beautiful!

  5. This is making me quite jealous! My husband started my dream log cabin in miniature this past winter but, alas, it is now grass cutting and hay season so it won't be touched again until winter! Maybe one day. Meanwhile I will enjoy your progress!
