    Hi, Dan--

    Well, at least you're in the final stretch now, before class. :) Hang in there! We remember how exciting it was right before we went, but the time came faster than we thought it would. ...

    Happy New Year!

    Hey, all!

    Just want to say Happy New Year, and wish everyone the best.

    May many log home dreams come true, or at least closer to reality, and everyone work safely!

    Hi, George--

    Like panderson, I don't have any specific experience or wisdom to contribute, but I agree it could be really amazing.

    For re-sale, I would think that it could be a drawback,...

    Hey, there, Sara--

    Hi, Ed--

    Whether or not to stay and defend your home is always a tricky decision which has to be made with care and realism, and staying is never without risk. Sorry to hear about your friend who...

    I'm a dark-wood person, myself, but I know that a few years ago, it was popular with some folks to stain their logs with very light/semi-transparent white stains. Obviously, if the...

    Hi, Jim--

    Vegas isn't much crazier than Cape Cod in August, though the lights are brighter. :D

    Hi, John--

    It really did blow us away when we saw it the first time (well, and the other times, too! :)) It's an awesome house. And we think that it really helped students assimilate the class...

    John,

    As Rod said, visiting Skip's house was a real experience, both because of the actual structure, and the whole "package" of house, furnishings, and Skip himself. Like Rod, Jeff and I feel...
