Year Purchased: 1971
About: David and Carla Shaffer started building their two story Log Home in the spring of 1977. They have raised their 11 children and many foster children in this home. David taught Mathematics and Physics at the Junior High, High School and Community College levels for 40 years and is now retired. Carla is a stay at home mother and housewife, She loves providing her children the love and joy of parenthood teaching her children the responsibilities of an American citizen. Together they enjoy their Montana life style that brought them to this beautiful area in the summer of 1971.
Why Columbia Falls, MT, USA:
In 1971 we purchased the land from the family of the original homesteaders of the area where our home is built.At the time there were very few people living on this the "wrong side of town" on a gravel road. We chose to live in the rural part of Columbia Falls to give our children the experience of living on a farm and doing chores. Montana gave our family the opportunity for hunting , fishing, camping and enjoying the 4 distinct seasons of year.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Log Home has a special spirit in it that comes from living good principles, loving each other and reaching out to members of our community.
