The house that Jack built

My son Jack is a builder and owner of Capital Country Homes out of Olympia, Washington. The family all teases him a little with, "The house that Jack built." And now, there are many of them.
This guy was a whopper when he was born...10 pounds and 18 inches long....or should I say, "short." On my birthday this last July we made arangements for him to take me to lunch when he wasn't right in the middle of building one of the pretty, custom built homes that are his specialty. We hadn't been able to complete those plans until today.
Before we went to eat we stopped by my sisters log home--which he built and said it would be the one and only log house he would build; I guess because it was such a huge undertaking. It's a dream house to me and my sister has it decorated like something out of a Home and Garden magazine. As we were leaving I tried my best to get a picture of the house. I am just not that good at it. Fooey! but I tried and I promise to get better. The three pictures I did get are the front of the beautiful log house; me and Jack, and me and Jack's truck.
It really is a gorgeous home


  1. Well the three pictures you did get are pretty good Audrey. And you are so right about your sister's home, it really should have it's own magazine spread . Jack built a home that has withstood a raging flood when most of the homes near the lovely log home washed away.Jack should add that tid-bit to his building credentials, built to withstand the Nisqually River!

  2. Thank you for sharing your day. The cabin with all the pretty plants is beautiful! I know you are very proud of Jack.

  3. Dear Audrey, Please read A.Joy's post and then add for me "....and I'd like to live at the end of a dirt road in one of these beautiful homes!HAHA!

  4. Agreeing with KathyB. Definitely needs to be in a magazine.

    Glad you had a good day!!
