In searching for some inspiration, I ran across Bearfort Lodge - Log Cabin Life and the Art of Log Home Maintenance. Many of you wouldn’t know, but I grew up in some pretty rustic areas with log cabins and homes. My grandparents were cattle ranchers and the family homestead was a log house.
So, my mind immediately veered off to visions of Wild West steampunk log homes, especially when the blog owner, blogged about making his own bathroom sink and faucet.
I might have suggested a cross-handles with porcelain tabs and “hot” and “cold” written on them for that steampunk look, but that’s me.
The plumbing he discusses in his post that he's emulating is an American company named Sonoma Forge. Located in Petaluma, California and created by blacksmiths, the lines are mainly being used as a textural/industrial finish in contemporary homes, but would work very well for our steampunk home.
What do you think? Is all we need is a rinky-tink off-key piano or would you use these for your brick-and-beam?
