Peaceful Porch

   Posted by: John

Interesting contrast today.  First, the villa porch that looks very Italian to me.  Seems like quite the place to relax.  But if you prefer the rough and rustic forest cabin, the next one will probably suit you better.

Friday Food and Fire

   Posted by: John

Burgers are one of God’s food gifts.  Not ones like you get at McDonald’s.  I’m talking about real gourmet burgers.  There’s a place in Corvallis called McMenamins that serves fantastic burgers.  The restaurant itself is a joy to be in and looks a lot like a Scottish or German pub.

This is not one of their burgers, but it looks like it could be.

Now That's A Burger!

And of course, after eating that tasteful delight, enjoy the rest of the evening relaxing in front of this fireplace.

Rustic Bed and Bath

   Posted by: John

One of the very cool things about cabins and log home is being able to have the entire house be rustic.  Who really knows what the rest of these houses look like, but if they are anything like this bedroom and bathroom, the houses would be amazing.

Old Car

   Posted by: John

I have a number of pictures of some old cars.  Some are abandoned and rusting away.  Some are classics and beautifully restored.  Some are even out and about and probably noticed as fantastic pieces of machinery.  I thought it would be fun to post one from time to time.

This picture is many years old and shows cars that are in normal daily use.

These are great examples of rustic kitchens, one old fashioned, the other with a modern flair.

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  This one is pretty massive though.

Rustic Bed and Bath

   Posted by: John

One of the things that Laura and I both like are the cabin type homes.  We don’t have one, but would like one.  To that end, I am slowing working on doing some things in the master suite to give it a more cabin-like appearance and feel.

Hence, the pallet wall and beams.

This project is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun.  Here’s a bed and bath that someone else did that’s a lot more rustic than we ever want or need, but are still amazing.
