Stacking firewood around the perimeter of the fire pit is a clever and convenient storage idea. "If your fire is starting to weaken, all you have to do is grab a piece of wood and throw it in," says project manager Dylan Eastman.
During the Blog Cabin's People Choice voting period, online voters selected a raised metal fire pit design. Inspired by salvaged style, the home's original furnace grate is brought back to life as a grill top for the fire pit.
Prairie-style windows cover the backside of the home to highlight the picturesque views of the lake from the inside. "The back of the house is the showcase of the lake living," says Dylan Eastman, "working on the outside and inside spaces of the home, we wanted to create a way where they both could shine."
