    Very cool! Who would have guessed it would look like that on the inside? Gorgeous! And what a clever idea on the food bath!

    That is a gorgeous log home! What a privilege you had to see the wonders of it, including that very impressive way of cooling food. It must be very easy to relax in such a home.

    I got excited by the hand made floor rugs in the kitchen in the first picture. I have a number of those myself, made by my mother-in-law, who still makes them!! It is amazing what you can make from leftover fabric. The Amish are just so versatile, they do not waste anything. We can learn so much from them. Thank you Kevin for sharing these pictures.

    What a beautiful home!! Wouldn’t it be nice to keep food cold without the noise of a refrigerator?

    A Sam Chupp lived beside my husband’s farm in the Delaney Creek area, Vallonia, IN. Could this be the same one as they have sold there farms, sometime ago? The multi level home is very similar to the ones built on that property here.

    Modern adaptation of a spring house…that a lot of farms had..if they were lucky to have a spring on their property…the house was usually stone..and built over the running spring…..dirt floor…to store all their food goods in…and winter storage too….

    I have had the privlidge to be in this home and share a meal with Sam and Lydia. This home is incredable! That is all that I can say the pantry for food storage is just dreamy! the family is one of the nicest I have met in a long time, make me sad that mose Christian Americans are not like minded… We as a society can learn alot from the Amish!
