    Go with custom built cabinets in your kitchen. you will not be sorry that you did.

    Great story and pics – today is our 20th anniversary and we live in an old log house built early 1980 not like the average log kit these days where all the logs are cut and shellac finished? – theselogs cut and air holes thru my living room ha! but we love it – on 10 acres and 1/2 mile long driveway. The forestry has sold some of the 17000 acres behind us sooo they’re clear cutting across our road and will soon be on our side of the mountain. I love the way you write!

    I just built a home! We did absolutely everyone ourselves so we’re 1 year in the making and just about finished. Here’s my advise:
    1) black windows on the exterior are absolutely stunning but sooo hard to keep clean
    2) paint your ceiling pure white. Don’t venture out and pick a “softer white” (which I did). My kitchen and interior windows are pure white and it clashed with my soft white ceiling and window casings. I had to repaint everything!
    3) trust your instincts and make the changes, as you wish!
    4) we had so many funny “quotes” and “moments”. We wrote them all down on a plaque and hung it up in the garage . Some of our famous quotes were “ it’ll be nice when it’s done” and “ I thought you said your roof was simple”!

    Enjoy the process ! I hope your home is everything you dreamed of!

    Oh Eva what a fun process!! It can be overwhelming at times but enjoy every minute of creating your home! My nephew works at ST Wooten and excitedly reported to me “We are doing Eva Shockey’s house!” ? My family has also been in the building business as long as I can remember so if you ever have any questions or need any help please reach out! Enjoy this exciting time Eva! ❤️

    Hi Eva,
    This is truly an exciting time building your first house. I want to emphasize what the first guy said…do custom cabinets in your kitchen. It will be worth it. Good luck and can’t wait to follow the progress!
