House Crush N° 66—Log Cabin

House Crush log cabin
Welcome home!

Get ready for a real treat on House Crush today. This stunner is located just around the corner from me and is an original Joe Webb log cabin. Joe Webb was a builder famous for his log cabins and built them in the Highlands–Cashiers area in the 1920’s. I have been obsessed with them for years! Today’s home has been painted a lovely gray and the chinking has been done in brilliant white—what a stunning contrast.

The original part of the home is to the right and I think the board and batten section to the left in an addition to the home. The screened porch to the rear of the cabin is a modern addition and I am pretty sure those window panels can be removed in the Spring to allow the cool mountain breezes in. The back garden is enclosed by old growth rhododendron and includes a fire pit area. They even have a small croquet court and all of the area is surrounded by stone walls—never met a stone wall I didn’t love.

    There is so much to know about this house. The original owners (when the logs were brown and the chinking natural) were one of the early families to settle at the HCC. The Joe Webb cabin was tiny but the large family, of Mr. And Mrs. Fred Stuart Gould, Sr., gathered there often. Inside on one original board in the cabin is a carved family “measuring tape” showing the growth of the children and grandchildren through the decades the family lived there. It has been remodeled 3 times with care not to damage the original integrity of the entire cabin. If you go into the original chapel of the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, downtown Highlands, look for one of the stain glass windows dedicated to Mrs. Gould.
