Gourmet Kitchen(13 of 15)

Just like the bathroom design for a log home, some very unique challenges exist for kitchens. The contours of the interior logs and their movement as they shrink and settle are the primary concern when installing cabinetry, plumbing and appliances. Once you've wrestled with that, however, you are free to let your imagination soar. This kitchen is chock full of all the latest appliances. A thoughtful plan, designed for owners who pride themselves on their kitchen expertise led to the installation of expansive counter space, three sinks and a very comfortable eating/preparation island. But pay special attention to the lighting. Not only is there an abundance of natural light streaming in from three sides, but the fixtures illuminate all corners of the room. The eating area enjoys a beautiful 180-degree view and access to the deck.
