Little House In The Big Woods

Annie MillerThree years ago, my parents sold their home in town and bought acreage in the Maine woods. Since then they have worked overtime building their log cabin home after coming home each day from their full-time jobs.


Log Cabin House

The knotty pine boards were all sanded and varnished by hand, mostly by my mom. I especially am attracted to the variations of installment. The boards on some walls are wide and installed horizontally. On other walls, the boards are thin and installed diagonally. Still others are variegated, alternating wide and thin. It adds visual interest.

There are two lofts connected by a catwalk, one on each end of the cabin. These are used for extra storage space and guest rooms. I love waking up surrounded by the warm glow of the knotty pine and the forest view from the window. It is a lovely experience.
