From the Ground Up

With the votes in and tallied Ahmed Hassan takes the Blog Cabin reigns to build this year's cabin. From the ground up Ahmed is charged with creating a home just the way the DIY bloggers want it to be. Here to help are contractor brothers Chris and Simon Hodshon. After setting truly innovative and cutting edge foundation walls, Amy Devers stops by to give Ahmed some tips and take a trip to the Barna miill, where each log is processed before showing up on our site. Amy passes the buck to Ahmed and along with Chris, and Simon, they begin the daunting task of setting the log walls.

The Ultimate Outdoor Escape

Inspired by the breathtaking views, an outdoor space wraps the side of the house, providing shade from the intense midday sun. A pergola roof, vertical garden and grill station create the ultimate outdoor escape.
