Log Home Show


Yesterday, we went to the Log & Timber Home Show down at the Expo Center. The Barna reps that we had purchased our plans and logs from were working at the Barna booth and had reserved tickets for us...YIPPEE! So we headed out early and went to see what we could see...

which, unfortunately, wasn't much! The show was so small this year! But, Barry and I did get a chance to sit and talk with Robin and Denny for a bit about some future plans for our house and garage, and Barry got to sit and talk with the builder we used about some issues we have been having with our front windows. So it was still a fruitful trip!

I LOVE the log home shows! Usually so much to see, and so many good ideas...needless to say, now all I can think about is decorating! So when I got home, I got out all of the new bedding I bought for Noah's room and all the accessories and laid them out to see what all I had and what I needed. Then I unwrapped that awesome quilt and laid it out on the guest bed, which is in the room that will be Noah's. It is going to look sooooo good!! I am thinking I will paint his room a buff color, in possibly a suede-textured paint, with one accent wall of hunter green. Last week I was just cruising through Target (big mistake) and found these cute little wall pegs that look like bear paw prints...and they were on clearance!! WOO HOO! So, of course I picked them up! I am planning for Noah to move into his new "big boy room" for his birthday in May. I just need to go buy his cute log bed. And with his room done, the upstairs will be FINISHED! And that will make me so happy!


Now, I just have to pick the paint for the great room and entry way...and the powder room. And the office. And window treatments for our bedroom. And for the kitchen. It never ends, does it???

The show sounds like a lot of fun. I love to see things like that and get all excited about re-doing something in the house. And you're right. It never does end. Just when you think you're done, you look at a wall or a room and decide it's time to do something different. Ah, the joys of being a homeowner!

Cute Stuff! I love the quilt, and the bear paws. He is going to love his new big boy room.

I wish I still had mine.

Your things are really wonderful, and I am completely jealous of your log home. I want to build one in the mountains of NC, but I am pretty sure that Ken is going to say no to that idea. We are coast people, so we probably just need to rent a log home for a week as a vacation!!! Your is so lovely!!

Kuckie said...

Evil - Yes we do...and we love it! I'm sure there will be lots of updates coming real soon!

Kate - I think so too!

Snowman - you'd love it!

Terri - The show was fun...now if I only had 40 hrs in a day to do all the stuff I want to do...oh, yeah, and like a million dollars!

KC - I'm sure they do! Do a Google on it...or go to the Log Home Living website and look up the dates for a city near you.

Hammer - thanks! It was my mom & dad's, but I'm pretty sure it's a reproduction. Love it anyway!

Kiki - Renting for a week is good too...then you don't have to keep up with the maintenance!

I really like the way the log homes look. If I ever live int he country, this is the kind of home I'd like to have. The previous pics you've posted of your home are beautiful.

Hey! If you move Noah upstairs, doesn't that leave the 'baby room' empty?!! Hey I need to get my baby fix from someone! Speaking of, I need a fix from that sweet little ones!

Kuckie said...

Caligirl - Thanks! Maybe when you make tons of money from your book, you can move to the country! ;0)

Miss Kathy - Aren't Corbin and Ethan enough of a baby fix for you??!! ;0p LOL!

I love the woolrich stuff at target. I had debated about some of their stuff when I picked out stuff for the boy's new rooms. Glad you are getting stuff on clearance, cuz it isn't on sale around here!
