  •  same here - log sided house, super insulated (8+ / 0-)

    walls & roof, with wide eaves for summer shade.   We put  ceiling fans in just about every room, and unless there's several days straight of 90+ temps we don't need air conditioning.   No central air, just a window unit in the bedroom for 'emergencies'.   House holds the heat in the winter & stays cool in the summer.   Smart design goes a long, long way.  

    p.s. formica counters hold all my crap just as well as granite. We call HGTV the Real Estate Pornography channel.

    Comfort the afflicted. Afflict the comfortable.
