Comfort and Design(2 of 15)

How does your family interact? What are the activities they enjoy? These are the first questions to ask when designing your home.The fireplace is a traditional centerpiece in log homes. It's the gathering spot in the great room. In this home it is truly in the center of an open design, with the kitchen behind, the dining room to the right and a loft right above. Designed to create an airy, lodge feeling, this living space offers a comfortable family-room atmosphere and plenty of area for entertaining. But sometimes you just want to find a little privacy. Keep that in mind as well when you begin designing.
