Frontier House

I have recently finished watching Frontier House for the umpteenth time. Has anyone else seen this historical reality show on PBS? I honestly can't get enough of these house shows from PBS, even though I have seen them all, I keep going back again and again. Frontier House is definitely my favorite though. I don't know if it is because of the time period, and the fact that it reminds me of the Little House books, or if it is because the families are so freakin hilarious in their little fights and cheating scandals. I do wish that it had a little more information, or was longer. I mean, they were there for 5 months, and we get a 6 hour series? I am sure there is more in all those cutting room floor edits that could have been added...or maybe it was completely dull and that is why the show was only 6 hours. I think I read somewhere that the film crew was only out filming 3 days/week.

It has renewed my interest in log homes though. I have always loved the look of log homes. There is something so cozy about them. It doesn't hurt that it is definitely a cheap way to build a home...if you have access to trees. We seem to have an abundance of trees up here where I live, so it seems to be cheap to me...The problem I see is that we would end up with a very small home, and I'm not sure I can have a small home. I mean, I always desire to have less stuff, but it never actually ends up happening. Perhaps because our current home is 24oosf, and it would look a little silly with no furniture in it, although much easier to clean :-)

I sometimes wish my family could do a crazy stunt like Frontier House. Would we make it through the winter? Would we kill each other? Does anyone else ever wonder about this stuff? Or is it just me? And if it is just me...what the hell happened to make me so crazy?!
