Lincoln Logs

If you were a boy (and the occasional girl) growing up in the 50’s, you will likely remember the Lincoln Logs that we played with as we assembled our early dream log homes. Coupled with the Davey Crockett series, some of us were pretty well saturated with the notion that homesteading was still a present day reality.

For many that memory spilled over into our adult lives. In my case, my daughter Cheryl picked up the torch and built her first home out of log and to be quite honest, she did a splendid job. I wish I had some photos to share with you.

Log homes are not for everybody and regretfully for those who chose this mode of living, many builders neglect to install large sufficient windows or at least large enough ones to permit natural light to reach those otherwise dark areas, but this is not the case with today’s feature home.

2741 Renfrew Rd. in Shawnigan Lake is a prime example of how to take full advantage of a log home and allow it’s unique features to profile the concept.

Listed at $989,000, this is not a small home by any stretch of the imagination with 4938 sq. ft. finished, 5 bedrooms, 4 baths. Built in 2007 on 6.91 acres with three levels of living has all the bells and whistles of a stick frame home.

I will let the photos tell the rest of the story.
