Restored Log Cabin









So sorry I was not able to answer or share comments last week. I am always glad for you to visit my world & leave a comment or two. Will try to do better in the future.

I really had planned to get out & around town to take new shots....then the COLD weather hit! So, back into the archives to share images of a cabin located one block off the Lincoln Highway. I am sorry I don't know the history of the building (something for me to work on) but it has been restored in memory of a local physician. I was pretty happy upon touching the handle & the door opened so I could peek at the lovely stone foreplace & rough log mantle. The wooden shingles are really neat & I just could not resist the shot of flowers as I watch huge snowflakes drift by the window.

Thanks to the team that hosts "Show Your World". Click on the link to join in the fun & maybe even learn a few things along the way. http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/

It's astounding that North Americans once lived in such small buildings. Nice photos!

Those are great photos of the old cabin. I enjoy seeing our heritage saved and restored.
Beautiful photo of the cardinal below. We don't see them here in Utah, so your shot is a treat.

When I think of log cabins, I think of round logs with daub to keep out the drafts, but this is of squared timber with makes it really interesting. Lovely pics. You have documented it well visually.

That's great that you could enter this cabin! I love restored buildings therefore I chose a building in Rotterdam which was restored in the original way. It's now used as a museum.

Looks incongruous in its current modern surroundings doesn't it?

I'm with EGTG... hard to believe we were at one time satisfied with such small and simple homes. Looking around now you'd never guess it.
