Meadowbrook Cabin Porch
As soon as I saw the porch at the cabin, I could see myself living there. It’s the first thing I fell in love with.
This is what the porch looked like when I first bought the cabin.
My dad put in the rhododendron porch rails.
You can read more about how Dad built the rhododendron porch railings and see the before and after photos here: Project: Rhododendron Porch Railing.
The glider and rockers were the first things I bought for the house. Actually, I bought them even before the closing. They suit the cabin and they are very comfortable. You can find them on Amazon.
I was trying to find my glider. These are nearly the same and cost way less than I paid.
The porch looks cluttered in this photo, but really there is plenty of room. The porch is big. It is 12’ deep and runs 40’, the entire length of the log cabin. You can see the plans of the log cabin here: Meadowbrook Cabin Floor Plans.
What looks like little bird houses with turquoise ball canning jars on them are Carpenter Bee traps. You can learn more about how to protect your home from carpenter bees here: Project: Protect Your Cabin from Carpenter Bees and Wood Peckers. You can get bee traps on Amazon. We put up a lot of them and they really work.
The sign is actually an old cabinet door with a stencil. You can get the stencil on Amazon.
Or it would be even easier to do with one of the new decals!
The curtain rods are just copper pipe from Lowes. I held them up with large hooks.
I put elbows at the ends so the curtains don’t fall off. The curtains are regular canvas grommet curtains I got on a really good clearance. Measure how long they have to be, then choose your length and sort by price. Mine ended up coming in two different dye lots, but I just hang the ones that match nearest each other and it is no problem at all. I cut some fabric I had around to make the tie backs.
