  1. I love natural light! I hope there are going to be windows in the rooms where we spend the majority of our time.

  2. Hey, Blogcabineers,
    This is my first year voting on the Blog Cabin. But, what I want to know is – in regard to the kitchen island – why would anyone choose a fixed island, which means, to NOT have versatility over HAVING versatility, ie, anything on wheels that is able to be moved here or there, or out of the way, is a GOOD thing!

    • These 2 links give you info about surrounding areas including Atlantic Beach and a little bit of pirate history of the Moorehead CIty area….:D

    • I am going to correct myself, Queen Anne's Revenge was Blackbeard's & found in Beaufort, NC. I believe Blackbeard came from Bath, NC. Anyway, he frequented sailing from Topsail Island, NC up north to Beaufort & Moorehead City, NC area. Legend has it that there is buried or hidden treasure from his plundering somewhere on the coast. Ahoy, Mateys!!!!:@

  7. Good to see that there's enough storage places in the house. It would ruin the overall design if there was a lot of clutter scattered everywhere.

  9. This setting so perfect! I love this house – there's nothing I would change. And our last name is Robinson, so we could just keep the family name going. This is the only blog cabin my husband actually agrees to pick up stakes and move to!. Let's keep the Robinson name alive!!
