We recently retired and set off on the adventure of building a new log home on 10.55 acres in North Country. This piece of land is part of the Adirondack State Park and includes a rear boundary along the St. Regis River and a wonderful creek (which we've named Andy's Creek because Rick's brother Andy found the land). The creek has several waterfalls, the land itself is about 4 acres of meadow and 6.5 acres of beautiful woods (most of it evergreens) complete with winding paths, and clearings to just wander through and enjoy nature.
This blog is meant to include our family and friends in this wonderful adventure. So enjoy the journey with us.
Rick laid a section. We feared the dogs paws would mar the wood, so he'd sand that section right away and then I'd put on a gym spar finish. In this pic the section to the left is finished, the right side is still bare wood.
This pic is a pretty good representation of the difference in looks between finished and unfinished. We had to plan things so we'd have a pathway into the room with the computer! Not being able to access the computer was not an option...even for 24 hours!
