Bend: Our Dream
years ago, Peggy and I went on a great ski trip to Utah. We
visited several resorts, Alta, Brighton, Park City, Snowbird,
Solitude, but by far our favorite was..... Deer
reason it was our favorite is because in Deer Valley, you
get to ski through all of these beautiful residential neighborhoods
which multi-million dollar homes. And most of these were
LOG homes. They
were stunning. I remember Peggy and myself sitting in Stein
Ericson Lodge sipping some wine and talking about how awesome
it would be to have a log home. That was the start of our
dream – Cypress Bend.
first considered the type of logs we wanted, such as Cypress,
Oak, Cedar, Pine, etc. We chose Cypress since our property
is covered with several large Cypress trees. This led to our
selecting Suwannee River as our log supplier.
took seven years from dream to reality – but now, every day
we get to see more and more of our dream home come alive.
It will probably be November before we move in, but like all
goals, the journey is even better than the destination. We’re
learning a lot, and loving seeing what can happen when you
plant a seed and watch it grow every day.
