The Mountain Laurel...

When Ben completes residency and can practice on his own, this is the house we are looking at building.  He has always dreamed of a owning a log cabin on some land.  We'd like to build it on a hill somewhere in Sherman.  I love the huge open spaces on the inside (You can look at more pictures/blueprints on the Satterwhite website.) and the rustic look.  I love the porches and balconies, the double staircase, and the outdoor fireplace.  It even has an optional basement where Ben could have a man cave to sleep during the day when he has to work nights, but we'd have to find a place where the water table is higher because around here you can't have a basement or it'd fill with water.  We looked at it in more detail when we went to the log cabin show a few days after Ally was born.  The only thing I would change is the wood color.  I want a darker wood, I hate this yellow pine wood.  Yick!  What do you think?  Super big for a family of 5, I know, but you never know...we might still be expanding our family and if we don't (not making an announcement here people, I JUST had a baby, lol), it'd be a great place to have our big family holiday gatherings.  We'll see what happens, but it is fun to dream for now...
