A Nod to Traditional(1 of 15)

With an expansive 500-square-foot front deck and a porch of more than 300 square feet, this kiln-dried log home is reminiscent of pioneer days – with one exception: It has all the conveniences of a thoroughly modern home. Set on a beautifully manicured woodsy plot, the cabin is at one with nature. A wall of double paned, Low-E, and argon filled windows allows plenty of light in while protecting against drastic temperature fluctuations. Built from a kit, energy efficiency was a key factor for this design. Inside you'll find three bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths. The main living area is the 1,300-square-foot downstairs. The 400-square-foot second floor is where the master bedroom and a bath are located.
