Our initial venture into building with logs was to put up a garage. We lived in it while we raised our first six kids! Since then it has had a complete remodel. And a new name…the Bunkhouse.
The kitchen features a stove, refrigerator (with ice maker), dishwasher, oak cabinets–thanks to Al’s carpentry skills, sink and laundry. A futon in the living room provides extra bed space for the larger family or group. This house has many stairs and is not wheel chair accessible.
The Bunkhouse sleeps seven with ease. Two bedrooms are upstairs–one with a queen bed and the other with a queen plus a swinging twin. (Even adults have been known to argue over who gets to sleep in the swinging bed!) The futon in the living room adds space for two more people to sleep.
The bathroom sports an old fashioned claw foot tub with hand held shower. In winter, hot water is circulated under to tile floor to keep your feet toasty warm! A wood stove in the living room adds to the country flavor.
We rent the Bunkhouse as a stand alone cabin. The beds are made up when you come and we provide towels, pots and pans, dishes, etc. You bring your own food and are on your own for all meals, including breakfast.
The Bunkhouse has lots of stairs and is not suitable for folks who have difficulty walking or climbing. Bedrooms are upstairs. Kitchen and dining area are on the main level. The living room and bathroom are down another (!) set of stairs. Why so many stairs? Well, as a garage, the living room area was to drive a tractor into to work on. The dining/kitchen area…the shop with tools. The upstairs…a storage loft. Ah, the best laid plans…

"Thank you sooo much! This is the best farm I have ever been to! Please remember that the short haired kitten that is all black is Buddy, the long-haired kitten that is black with brown highlights is Lucy. The other kitten looks like Lucy, but it nibbles a lot. That one is Nibbles. The mother is Sasha. Please keep their names."
