We had such a nice weekend here in Michigan, temps were in the 50 and 60, and yes that’s a heat wave this time of year here. People were even out in shorts, I was not one of them though I still needed pants and a flannel shirt.
Anyway hubby and I decided to spend some time outdoors and get a little fresh air. He remembered driving by an old log cabin this winter while he was traveling and we decided to set out on an adventure to see if we could find it again.
Well guess what, we did or I should say he did. I have no idea how he can take back country roads to get places and then find where he’s been again but he can. He travels all over the US for his job and never needs a GPS to get anywhere. Shoot I loose my car in a parking lot some times.
Isn’t it just a darling little place? We peeked in all the windows (this isn’t someones home) to see how the inside was furnished, but all that was there was some things being stored. I thought our place was rustic but this place is way more rustic than ours. This is something straight from the early days on the prairie.
After I snapped a few photos on the porch I went out back to look at the cute garden plot the place had, which was also very rustic in it’s fence construction. I didn’t even notice untill hubby pointed it out that the house was made from telephone poles. Yep he was right, that’s exactly what the place was made from.
What a brilliant idea I thought, in our neck of the woods you can get telephone poles for free. What a great way to build a hunting lodge or even a home if you could get enough of them. I decided to google it and it’s a THING, people collect them and built their home for almost nothing. I wish we’d have thought of that. The only concern would be you’d have to get the ones that hadn’t been treaded with creosol, I don’t believe that would be healthy to breath in.
It was a fun day spent with my hubby, he even took me to lunch and we visited a place that’s making sushi while you watch. I’m glad we decided to take a little road trip it was worth the search.
