Who hasn’t dreamed of escaping the stress of the real world and going back to a simpler time? That is exactly what my wife Christie and I did. After years of running the rat race Monday through Friday and dealing with hectic weekends we were frazzled and at our wits end.
That’s when we decided to build our weekend get away. We acquired a few secluded acres in the beautiful Missouri, and a 400 sq. ft. log cabin kit from Schutt Log Homes (schuttloghomes.com) for $6000.00 and got busy building our romantic hide-a-way. The process of putting the cabin together was simple and so rewarding. We spent time together working on our dream and in the process built our relationship and came away with so many wonderful memories.
Now we are rewarded with our very own rustic retreat. My wife enjoys the small kitchen area where she cooks wonderful meals and I enjoy getting back into nature. We both love our little log cabin and our time away from all the worries of the world.
