Wood compliments of Frady Tree Care! Front posts are full logs. Walnut door came from Home Depot. I acquired this little house in Nov 2012. Demo’d inside down to stud walls in three days….ongoing lifelong project.

What a great facelift! Love the wood and beams… You nailed it… Did you add the metal straps to the door? I have a door very close to this one as well is why I ask. Beautiful work.

Well done! I am looking forward to seeing what you do to the inside. I’m picturing a natural stone fireplace with copper accents??
