Valentine's Day, like all holidays, society seems to have sucked the meaning out of this special day and turned it into a commercial whirl wind filled with cards, chocolates and flowers. While there is nothing wrong with the lovely gifts, there is definitely more to this "commercial" holiday than most think. This day gives you another opportunity to spend time with those you LOVE. It doesn't matter if you're attached or unattached, take time on this day to show the ones you love how much they mean to you. Whether it be your mother, father, children or for those of you who are lucky enough, grandparents, put some time aside to share your love with them!
At Knotty Pine Cabins, we are very lucky to be able to help build and design our customer's dream homes and cottages. Our wood homes and cottages are the very place where families get to make new memories and share old ones. They are where birthday parties are held and Christmas mornings are made. All of these memories seem to revolve around one important aspect in everyone's life: LOVE! We are extremely grateful and delighted to have been given the opportunity to create these environments so that families like ours can share their love with one another.
Happy Valentine's Day from all of us at Knotty Pine Cabins!

I built a 24 ft by 40 ft cabin with a loft that includes dormers and 2 bedrooms upstairs. The cabin is on a full walk out basement. Construction went very smooth. I completed quite a bit of work myself- and in the end, it was well worth it. The end product is great- very cozy and comfortable. The pine finishing give the feeling of warmth. It is a...

As more and more of our clients are living in our cabins year-round, we are starting to see a rise in designing custom kitchen packages. Customers no longer want little kitchenettes that are suitable for weekend cabin living, they want beautiful and functional kitchens that coincide with the beautiful pine interiors of our wood homes.
There are many different ways people can design their dream kitchens, all it takes is a little creativity and the friendly old internet by your side! Unlike standard homes that are typically dry walled and then painted over with your colour of choice, our cabin packages always have the 1”x6” tongue and groove pine as the interior finishing. (Please note, that you can also dry wall our cabins; however, for the most part, our customers choose the pine finishing giving them that rustic wood-home feel!)
The best way to begin designing your kitchen is to peruse through photos either in books or on the internet to get a feel for the type of design and colour scheme you would like to use. If you don’t already have a Pinterest account, now is the time to get one! Pinterest is wonderful for organizing your little treasures on the internet. (Visit our Pinterest page for some cabin décor inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/knottypinecabin/) Once you have a general idea of colour scheme and lay out, you are going to want to choose a type of flooring that compliments both the interior pine walls and cabinet colour. (Sometimes if you do all the same type of wood colour it can be too much. It’s always nice to break up the pine by either choosing different floor or cabinet colours.) That being said, we have seen some kitchens done beautifully all in the same pine shade. (See photos below!)
Now that you have an idea on design and colour, Knotty Pine Cabins can set you up with one of our cabinet specialists to create a rendition drawing of your kitchen. Our helpful team can also assist you in choosing everything from counter tops to drawer pulls all which will come together to create the look, design and overall feel you wish to achieve for your dream kitchen.
Remember to have some fun when designing your kitchen! Express yourself. By the time, you have finished with our creative team; you will have a cooking space that will make your guests say wow!
