Log Home Progress

Well, if you know me at all, you know I lack in the patience department. All I could think about was decorating my little house. It doesn’t matter if the structure part is done or the outside finishing touches, I just can’t wait to get in there and start decorating. First thing I did was lay my wood flooring.This was not as easy as I thought it would be. I first used wood glue and my planks kept popping up so then I switched to hot glue and that worked so much better other than the flippin burns you get on your fingers!

I of course was in a hurry and so I went ahead and painted my logs and chinking. Didn’t know what I would have used anyway. I was a little leery after the floor bit. I had this little pie safe that I painted and grunged up. I cut some pieces off a old quilt for my curtains and hung a little quilt on my pie safe door. This area will be my kitchen. I have to get a little table yet and of course my appliances. Don’t know if I will try and make them or not.

This side of the room will be my little cozy living space. I immediately had to get a Maggie inspired quilt (which I made promptly) upon my wall. I also made a little wool runner for my bench. Right now I have some dried flowers hanging but I plan on building a fireplace to go on this wall. I have to check with my contractor first! Now remember my window framing and other finishing touches aren’t done yet!

I still have to work on the outside of my house and of course finish the inside but like I said, I just had to do a little instant decorating. I couldn’t stand it any longer.

Now don’t forget, I’ll be inviting you over when it’s all done. I better go get me a front door made before someone tries to break in and steal my quilt!

Rusty and the boys just shake their heads and leave me alone, they know I am in my own little world, and having the best time too!



  1. How awesome is this!!! I want to come and stay for a visit right away!!! I love your painting and that quilt and penny rug are absolutely perfect! Better put a front door and lock on pretty quick or I might just move in ;)

  2. That is so cool Mindy!! Looks like you are doing an awesome job on it. And I won't have very far to drive for a visit!!

  3. Oh this is just amazing lol. That is just incredible. It takes me all day just to clean out a couple drawers and you are building houses and decorating them right before our eyes.
    Thanks for sharing

  4. Wow! What a great idea. You are doing a wonderful job on all the miniatures. Can't wait to see it when it is all finished.

  5. Great job on all those little minis. Can't wait to see the finished project.

  6. Your little primitive house is just wonderful! It reminds me of my favorite days when I loved changing and decorating my doll house. I spent hours and hours, making all kinds of decorations to make it my fantasy dream house! Looking forward to your progress and final finishing!

  7. Hi Mindy my hubby built me a log cabin doll house and I like the idea of the wool little
    quilt. I put a little spinning wheel in mine.
