Building this log lake house has been a lifelong dream of mine, in addition to a source of worry in addition to work for the last three years.
I think I may have another year or so left until I am done with it all.
Part of the reason for that is myself and others being in no hurry at all. I want it to be pitch perfect in every way, so if it takes many years to finish, then that’s how long it takes! The structure itself is done, in addition to there is a roof in addition to walls in addition to even exterior doors, so I can sleep here on long weekends. To work here during the summer time I entirely had to invest in a small air conditioning unit, which would work now that I had enclosed spaces. The first few summers were brutal, with no hope of any cooling besides jumping in the lake, because with no structure to trap the cold air there was no point in AC, now at least I will be wonderful for cooling down a room or 2, which I can do while toiling, or just to have a nice comfortable locale to sleep! Once I have all the interior work down, in addition to the plumbing in addition to electrical grid installed, then I can think about what kind of climate control system I will get for the locale. I want a wood burning furnace to use in the winters, however I’m not sure if central air conditioner is the way to go, or just getting more window units, because there won’t entirely be that many rooms.
