Starting with untouched wooded land, we designed our home to meet our needs and then found a builder willing to take on such an unusual project. He was very receptive to our wants and desires and considered it a challenge since most new home owners want only the high-end finishes such as granite, stainless steel, very formal lighting fixtures, etc. -- all the things that we did not want! We had been collecting primitive antiques for our entire married life and this was a great opportunity to showcase them. My husband bought the re-claimed log cabin for my birthday -- was built circa 1820 in central NC of American Chestnut and we had it relocated to our lot and that was the beginning of our project. Since I have done so much genealogy on my family and found many cabins of my own ancestors, this was a natural for us.
