A Log Cabin in Alabama

Sorry, no original content but I had to mention this not-what-you-expect log cabin in Alabama built by the owner, artist Butch Anthony. The place is incredible and he's still working on it. In fact, this is his second log house; the first, a one-room cabin was built when he was only 14 years old!

Mr. Anthony, who is in a relationship with sustainable clothing designer Natalie Chanin, has decorated the home on his 80-acre compound with unusual objects. The wire contraption in the picture above is actually an old wire bed spring, the seats of the two flanking chairs are woven with old neck ties, and the base of the platform bed is lined with recycled car license plates. Not typical log cabin furniture at all.
Yes, another quirky bathroom!

The rest of the house is furnished a bit more traditionally though there probably is always a little twist somewhere in the decor. He is an artist, after all.
