On April 1 1977, ten months after we got married, we bought our dream property in NW Oregon.  Located in the foothills of the Coast Range at the one thousand foot elevation, we enjoy the seclusion and privacy that thick woods can offer.  We were two young kids with a dream, a dream we are still living.  The following is our On-line photo album.  It has been a challenging experience to build our own log home - a continuing process for over two decades.  We have learned a lot along the way.

In the beginning, of course, is the foundation.

Papa's little helper setting snap ties.  He is over six foot tall now.

Tar paper skin over the basement.  This was home for over ten years while we built the up-stairs.
