  • Description


    My son and I live on a beautiful private acreage. We have horses, dogs, one cat and some chickens. There are always things to do. Would like to build a log cabin soon.
    We go on many horse trips in the mountains and walk on the trails where we live.
    Mountain views and beautiful places to see nearby. We have 2 nice guest cabins, a sauna and lots of room. Our house is made out of logs and is heated by wood and very cozy.
    We like to eat good food!

    It would be great if you like to work with wood. There are always wood projects here. In 2022, we would like help in building another log cabin. And there are railings to build out of wood.
