It's inspiring to stay in someone's dream home. To hear about all the thoughtful little details they obsessed over (old forest-spirit men built into the fireplace? Wheelchair-width doorways on the first floor? Flying Turtles to navigate the low basement? Reused wood panels from the old cabin? Yes yes yes yes). To see their personality in the design and execution. To feel the sweet radiant heat flooring underneath your sensitive Southern feet during a Michigan winter.

But I think the small cabin (on the right on the bottom picture) will always be my favorite. More on that later.
