About Us

For many years we thought about building a summer home. We knew it was a grand idea but also figured it would never happen. One blustery cold winter afternoon we were driving around our state of CT looking at property and found a gem right on a lake with a “For Sale” sign on it. The property was being used as  a dump for the neighborhood but much of the trash was covered with snow so the only structures we saw were a fireplace and an old outhouse.

Fortunately we were able to look beyond the blemishes. We both agreed that we were going to build a summer house on that land — on that day we found our future summer home! After haggling over the price of the land, we suddenly discovered our dream to build a seasonal summer house was becoming a reality. It was exciting and scary all at once.Start of Building Summer House

After years of hard work and jiggling our finances every step of the way, we finally have made our dream come true — a lakeside log home! You can see our progress from start to finish in these photos as we built our summer home. We opted to share our experiences and try to convey that feeling that we got the first morning that we could actually leisurely sit on the deck and sip our morning cup of java while the mist slowly  made its way across the lake.

Whether you already have built your own summer house and would like to share some of your comments with others or are just starting and have some questions, you are welcome to  share your thoughts below.
