Good strategy, communication, vision and hard work eventually pay off for two homeowners who used all of the planning tools in their tool belt to build their dream log home.
It was not planned or executed overnight but over several years. Cultivating the dream, envisioning the finished product and working towards a common goal all paid off in the end. Now this beautiful log home is the Shaffer's dream log home come true.
A lot of their own blood, sweat and tears went in to their retirement home in Western North Carolina and it really shows. For the protection of their investment, they chose to use logs pressure treated with borates to guarantee against wood digesting insects and decay. In addition, they also liked the advantages that the spring loaded thru-bolt offered - keeping their log cabin home tight and energy efficient over the years.
Now that it's complete - they enjoy their time on the porch looking over the picturesque views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Their home was featured in Country's Best Log home magazine and you can CLICK HERE to see more photos and read about their experiences.
