Yeah, the whole rustic cabin decor is something that you are either a big fan of or just isn't your style. I grew up in a very rural wooded area, so really dig the whole knotty pine, cedar log concept with natural stone materials. Check out a few of my other builds and you will see that I have carried that look throughout my brewery and all of it's components as well. My wife is not a big fan of the cabin decor, but she is cool with it being confined to the basement only. If I had my way, I would have a big custom log home with this kind of decor throughout the entire house. Since there is no way my wife would go for that, I'm just glad that she let me run wild with the basement.
Someday I hope to buy a decent size lakefront cottage in northern Michigan and completely gut and refinish it into a rustic log cottage with knotty pine, cedar log trims, log furniture and natural materials. Since that isn't happening for a while, I put my efforts into the basement for now.
Thanks for the compliment.
