"It is taking longer than we planned", what everyone says when they are building a home. Even though it has taken longer, we are pleased to have the rear extension under roof, windows in, doorway now cut through from the log cabin to the new kitchen, and the electricians are now wiring. We will have one log wall in the kitchen, which is an exterior log wall. It will be in keeping with the large kitchen dining room I have designed with the objective of using our 8 1/2 foot harvest table my husband built for me many years ago.
The dining end of the kitchen has this large row of windows so we can see out into the woods and meadow where the deer feed. A covered rear porch will run the full length of the house toward the meadow. It will be an outdoor dining area, living area, and gathering place. Construction of the porch begins this week.
