Thread: Introduce yourself

  1. #2961
    My name is Mike. I seen this forum a few years ago, now looking for something new as I get closer to retirement age. I would like to take the next class and learn as much as I can. Currently located in Columbus Ohio, my work takes me through out my state and the surrounding states. I operate a small ( one F350 and 34ft trailer) hotshot company all my work is expedited. I would also like to visit and possibly help someone working on their project.

    Mike, you waited too long to go to class. We have just moved into our place and had a re-wedding (30 year anniversary) a week after out first legal night. We have just announced our Housewarming Party, scheduled for Labor Day Weekend.

    This Housewarming is only open to LHBA members but, if you sign up for the next class I would love to have you catch a load to the left coast and, if you time it right, you will meet folks just like me and my Wife who have built one of these things with our own hands and without a mortgage. Trust me, you will not regret it.




    PS... This photo shows our new home, myself, my brother-in-law, my Wife of 30 years, and our Son, Jake... You figure out who is what and take the class.

    You seem vulnerable to a sales pitch. You don't have to wait til you are old and worn out to live in a log home that you built with your own hands.

    We are mortgage free. The place is OURS. That's the big deal. You take as long a time as you need to build the home of your dreams and then you get to live in it without a rent payment. If my Wife needed $500,000 to live another 10 years I'd dump this place in a heartbeat, but most likely we will live out our days in a nice house and Will the Boy a real head start it this world.

    I know folks my age who are tossing out $1800 per month on a stupid 2 bedroom apartment. Those same folks have chuckled at me for years every time we meet as they ask "When are you gonna move into that cabin you've been bragging about for all these years?".

    If I was you, I'd take the class. Thatsvas true a statement as you can get, because I was you once and I took the class.

    By the way, I am just a guy who likes this LHBA thing. I get no commission. The only thing I get out of talking you into taking the class is the opportunity to come to your log peeling party.

    No, I am busy that week, but take the class anyway

    Hello everyone (especially Steve!).
    My wife (CK) and I just bought a generally dried in log home in Alabama and have a three year plan to finish it. It will be our retirement home and we are super excited!
    Nearly all of the logs are stacked and the roof is on. I'd say dried in (and it is) but some soffit area logs are not yet in, so critters can come and go right now.
    The interior is a blank slate right now and our goal is to avoid covering the beautiful logs and let them be our interior view!
    The home is off grid but has enough solar/generator power to give us nearly all of the comforts of home.
    Our plan is to learn a ton (concealing wiring, plumbing and finishing logs for starters) and complete the home pretty much by ourselves.
    Looking forward to learning and getting to know our fellow log home builders!

    Greetings Ladies and Gents...

    Like so many before, I am a long time lurker and now a first time poster.

    My lovely wife and I are currently residing in the Memphis, TN area. I have recently started looking at property in Arkansas to build a retirement home.

    I have signed up for the email alert for the next class.......I can't wait! My wife on the other hand.....thinks I'm a wee bit nuts. I'm betting the class will change her attitude.

    Jeff

    Jeff,
    You might be nuts by the time you are done but you will be in a more peaceful place��. You will both be glad you did it and it will give you something to do with your retirement.
