I completely renovated a log cabin in the mountains of North Carolina in 2015. They say it is HGTV quality and I absolutely love it. It is on an acre which is plenty of room to “work the land” with strikingly beautiful flowers. Being a Floridian (Palm Beach area) for most of my adult life, I love the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina.
