Aberdeen Log Home From The 1700s Becomes A Modern Oasis

The homeowners who bought this house in 1988 fell in love with the white oak logs that were used to build it before the Revolutionary War. What they didn't like so much was the horse hair used to seal the openings in those logs. Thus began their long journey of upgrading and sometimes completely gutting and rebuilding almost every part of the house. At one point they found perfectly preserved newspaper articles from the early 1900s hiding behind the walls—probably a more modern attempt at insulation than the horse hair method. Check out the photos of how they made this into a liveable family home and see the full story here.
