DIY Log Cabin
Dick Anderson is a motivator who lives in Darlington, WI. He took issue with a past column of mine that discussed the challenges a DIY person faces when building their first log cabin. STOP now and read my past column titled Dream Log Cabin Challenges before you read Dick's comments below.
After reading Dick's comments, please do me and others a favor and put a comment below this post. I'm wondering if you feel I'm a Dream Crusher in my column. Thank you!

Most often thinking about things too much tends to spoil it."
Here's the email reply I sent back to Dick. I did a few minor edits to it for clarity:
