11. What is the log home like?
When we first built the house, we built it as a single pen home. It just had the front room that you came through and a loft upstairs and that's usually where the children sleep and we also sleep in the room downstairs. We have feather beds over in the corner. Well, the feather mattresses are held up by rope woven through the bed rail. Periodically, we have to tighten up the rope because it loosens up from the weight of people sleeping on it. So you always want to sleep tight, sleep on a tight rope. We're going to have to make a cornshuck mattress to put on top of the rope. Right now we just have a feather tick on there.
