Webb Fever!

Joe Webb that is. This charming log cabin was built by Joe Webb, an Appalachian master craftsman who built homes in the Highlands, North Carolina area in the 1920s and 30s. Mr Webb didn’t use power tools or architectural drawings when building his log cabins–Amazing.

I have been in love with his work for years and want to share a few homes with you. Why don’t you make a cup of coffee or tea before we start … let’s go.

WOW–welcome to the Entry patio and garden

Charming old Hickory swing and chairs on the front porch–Welcome

Living Room, log walls and a cozy stacked stone fireplace

Kitchen sink with a View and sliding window–day dreaming …

Locust and Rhododendron stairs and rails with and Antler Chandelier

High ceilings in the charming bedrooms–love the log bed

Built in storage in the bedrooms–no detail was overlooked

Charming bedroom has a view of the Garden

Third bedroom–Someone has been sleeping in my Bed!

Love the paneling and log details in the upstairs hall

Summer Sleeping porch overlooking the Mountains and garden–Yes, please

Looking down through the Antler Chandelier to the Living Room

Rustic side Living and Dining Room-Summer is calling

Back to the Front porch again–the rail is so rustic and welcoming

Need to turn that horse shoe up to hold the good luck–love the door color

Garden path leading to …

Wouldn’t you just love to move right in and enjoy the mountain view. I will have another Joe Webb tour soon. This home is currently on the market and would make a wonderful place to spend your Summer vacation.

    Lissy, love the tour of this sweet log cabin. This was wonderful to wake up to this morning! Would love to see another Joe Webb tour. Like I said you should publish a book!!!

  2. Lissy what a wonderful post. Cools me off just looking at it! I remember Toby West telling me a story about Joe Webb building a house for a couple in Highlands. When the couple came to inspect the progress to their great surprise the building was not matching their carefully drawn plans. When they asked Mr. Webb about it, he reportedly replied in his Western North Carolina drawl, “Them plans done blown away.”

    • Frances,
      I love that story! He was a real character according to the people in Highlands. I have a few hundred more pictures of another ‘Joe Webb’
      that I will be posting soon. Thanks for the great story.
      xo
