    Default The reason I don't restore razors right now

    Why I donít have time to restore razors. This is the log house I am attempting to build when I am not at the real job.

    Well what would ya' like to know. First I must have been hittin the crack pipe when I took this on (just kidding). It is around 2000 sq ft. It is a Country Log Cabin kit in white pine. It has square logs with dovetail corners. We decided to stain it grey to be different. I have put over 2000' of wire in it so far, I don't like to have to look for plugs, up to 70 of them. The interior is still a ways from done. I hope to buckle down when the weather breaks and get it finished so I can work on hobby projects. and been working on it sence last July.

    I love the little gifts in life. I guy that builds a log cabin and shaves with a straight razor and feels the need for 70 plugs just makes my day.

    Well if you want one go for it. I read a book on building log homes and it stated something like this. More people don't live the dream from lack of desire than from lack of money.
    It costs a little more than conventional frameing but I have made it up in my labor. Where it has cost is in the little extras. We have expensive tastes and seem to go over budget on every little thing form lights to floors. I want it all match but not have a real woods theme. We feel a log home can be done without too many stuffed heads. But you gotta have an old set of snow shoes.
