The Land of Lincoln 2

I was driving out in the county and I passed by this house. I made a really bad U-turn and stopped in front of it because I had a total deja vu moment.

For some reason I was a giant and could pick up whole logs with my fingers and place them on top of each other to build this house.

Then it dawned on me – Lincoln Logs! This house is a life-sized Lincoln Log house!

I love it!

It is proof that we are still kids at heart. As a child, the builder of this house probably spent hours and hours on the floor with a Lincoln Log set spread out around him thinking, “Someday I’m going to build a real house out of Lincoln Logs and live in it with my family!”

And he did!

It’s simple, timeless and homey. Just a few things that would complete my vision are a herd of plastic cows in the pasture out back, a few weeble wobble kids playing in the yard and a Barbie swimming pool.

I am puzzled how I have managed to shop at Home Depot numerous times and somehow missed the aisle of gigantic canisters that contain all the materials to build a house!

    That’s probably his dream home! Whatever happened to Jason’s idea of Tuffsheds? One day, I’d love to see the whole Tuffsheds-as-a-house-and-additions concept take off! Easy, affordable, and right in line with that guy who feels most at home in his garage! Love your stuff, K, keep it up!
