"Peter and Anna Wenzel have a home with a difference. It's a log house dating back to 1837, and they believe it's the oldest in the area. Located on five acres of land east of Holland Landing, the house required a year's worth of work by the couple, helped by friends and relatives, to make it functional as a home. Linoleum had to be ripped off the hardwood floors, plumbing and a septic tank had to be installed, the exterior had to be re-caulked, the interior was rebuilt...and now, the Wensels have a cozy home that they won't part with. The log barn on the property has been converted to a workshop, and the Wenzels plan to build an addition to the house in future months."
