Log Home + Woodstove = Happiness

First fire in the woodstove

In my last post I talked about getting ready for winter, and one of those annual log home chores is bringing in enough firewood to last through spring. Well, my bride is now happy that I can remove that project from my ‘honey-do’ list. The weather (and other commitments) cooperated […]

Is your log home ready for winter?

Fall is in the air…

Preparing for winter is something that every homeowner does in one way or another. Even if you live in a home clad in vinyl siding, there are always things that need done to keep Mother Nature where she belongs…outside. Log homes require a tad more TLC and preparation than other […]

Merry Christmas

Christmas, it truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Even with all the distractions and troubles life keeps putting in our way, isn’t it great that when Christmas rolls around we tend to focus on what’s most important in our lives. In my mind that’s the magic of Christmas, it’s a feeling, […]

Football, Firewood and Log Home Fire Prevention

Fall is in the air, which means that football and firewood are on my mind. I’ve already seen my team, the Pittsburgh ‘Stillers’, play two regular season games and their performance is telling me this could be a long painful season. We got embarrassed by the Ravens and didn’t look like we were serious about […]

Fireplace Design & Wood Burning Stoves

For most parts of the country, the wood burning season is over (tell that to my local weatherman), but a few weeks ago I was searching for some info about wood stoves and discovered a company I was not familiar with, called Morsona. These are not the usual breed of wood stoves we see in […]

Merry Christmas

From our little log cabin in the woods…our family would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a safe holiday weekend.

Celebrating Christmas in Montana is always a special treat and this year as I look around, it seems like a scene from an old […]

DIY Rustic Log Furniture Project

A reader of this blog, Robert W. asked…

Didn’t you have some information about a handmade china closet where you gave plans and pictures? I have been looking for such a winter project to work on…

Guilty as charged, Robert. Sorry you couldn’t find the information you were looking for and that’s probably because I’ve […]

Log Homes Were Made for Snow

Montana winters are always unpredictable. A few years ago we didn’t receive any snow until Christmas day and other years we’ve had action as early as September. This year winter arrived with a vengeance. It has been snowing for two weeks and last week we had 4-5 days of sub-zero temps (-12 one day).

A Log Home Cinco de Mayo in Montana

Cinco de Mayo means many things to different people. Most I would assume, do not associate this spring celebration with snow…. unless you live in Montana. This is the scene that greeted us this morning.

Although we have a fire in the woodstove and are watching the snow fall, this is a […]

How was your weekend?

I’m killing time waiting for the Super Bowl festivities to begin, so I thought I’d do something constructive like write about the weather. Here I am in NW Montana (Glacier country I’ll have you know) and we haven’t seen an appreciable snowfall in weeks.

Earlier this morning I spoke with my daughter who lives […]
