  1. Portable Outdoor Living Decor | Clare’s Wares | Cabin Decor Ideas

    This month's theme: Potent Portables When the weather’s nice, you want to spend as much time as possible outdoors: eating, drinking, playing. The only problem? Most of the stuff you use to eat, drink and play normally resides indoors—and hauling it all outside can be a pain. That’s where these finds come in: They’re all […]

  2. Black Mountain, North Carolina | Log Home Living’s Best Places to Build | 2008

    Population: 7,667 Land Prices in Black Mountain: 2-acre pretty treed lot already outfitted with well, septic and drive goes for $70,000. Why we love it: More Mayberry than Asheville, Black Mountain quietly lolls in the valley of the Craggy Mountains, surrounded by misty vistas of the Southeast’s tallest peaks. Black Mountain calls itself “The Front […]

  3. Salmon, Idaho | Log Home Living’s Best Places to Build | 2008

    Population: 3,059 Land Prices in Salmon: 6.6 acres, with views of the Lemhi River and snow-kissed peaks, run $78,000 just 10 minutes from town. Why we love it: If the idea of a rose-red sun setting on the Bitterroot Mountains doesn’t make you weak in the knees, then maybe you should click here. But if […]

  4. Presque Isle, Maine | Log Home Living’s Best Places to Build | 2008

    Population: 9,253 Land Prices in Presque Isle: $60,000 pays for 44 undeveloped, treed acres with 1,000-feet of lakeside shoreline.

  5. Cortez, Colorado | Log Home Living’s Best Places to Build | 2008

    Population: 8,448 Land Prices in Cortez: For $80,000 you can buy more than 5 acres—with water tap—that are dotted with pinon and juniper and offer views of the La Plata Mountains and Mesa Verde. Why we love it: When most people think of Colorado, they think of the annoying conga line of traffic heading west […]

  6. Aberdeen, Washington | Log Home Living’s Best Places to Build | 2008

    Population: 16,389 Land Prices in Aberdeen: If you want big bay views, you’re going to pay. But for $65,000 you can get nearly 6 acres with views of a small creek; you put in the septic and well. Why we love it: If you can handle the rain—they don’t call Aberdeen, the “gateway to the […]

  7. Bisbee, Arizona | Log Home Living’s Best Places to Build | 2008

    Population: 6,095 Land Prices in Bisbee: About $75,000 buys 6 acres of desert horse property with mountain views and few improvements.
