the ultimate digital detox

Mountain living means different things to different people. For log home owners Jim Theodoras and Clara Baroncelli, whose adorable cabin is featured on page 50, living in the mountains means the craggy cliffs and towering peaks of Montana’s Madison Range are the backdrop to a life filled with outdoor adventure. Wisely, the couple designed their home to synchronize with its surroundings, and with more than 20 acres to call their own, there’s nary a neighbor in sight.On the other side of the country, in a much different mountainous landscape, Roy Meryl and his wife, Darlene, take pleasure in the shorter (but no less spectacular) Appalachian Mountains of western Pennsylvania. Here, the peaks aren’t continuously capped with white, like the ranges of the Rockies. They change with the seasons – a…

snooze fest

Sometimes a mere porch isn’t quite enough—you need a true escape. A tiny backyard respite, nestled among the trees or along a babbling brook, enables you to unwind away from the hustle and bustle of the house. Note that the wee room comes complete with a porch of its own.In the Great Camps of the Adirondacks, screened-in sleeping porches offered sweet slumber without the hassle of insects or rain. A log cabin backdrop, an antique bed, a classic wool throw and a good book are all you need to relax.Any screened-in porch can double as a whimsical sleeping porch. For furniture, consider trundles or daybeds, which also can serve as sofas or even porch swings during the day.Since a sleeping porch’s furniture tends to be oversized, the dimensions of the…

the treehouse

(Kriss & Andrew Konesky photos)Krissy and Andrew “Dru” Konesky always wanted a log home, but achieving that dream in Branford, Connecticut, wasn’t easy. After months of searching, they hit the jackpot in neighboring Guilford. Just five minutes from civilization, they’re secluded enough where they can’t see their neighbors through the evergreen trees.Warmed by a cobblestone fireplace, their home exudes character from the 6-by-12-inch hand-hewn hemlock logs (with authentic pencil marks) down to the Y-plank white pine floors. “I didn’t know what any of that was when we bought our home, I just knew it looked great.” Now, the Koneskys gather friends for holiday parties or kick back in their sunken living room which offers the 180-degree, panoramic view that served as the genesis for their home’s nickname, “The Treehouse.” The house…

5 things i wish i knew before moving to a log cabin

(Photos by Megan Schetzsle)Picking up and moving across the country is no small feat, and in our case it was made even harder by the fact that we were downsizing. My husband and I were moving from a two-bedroom apartment to a 650-squarefoot log cabin.On top of that we were moving from a big city to a small one; from a populated area to a rural one; from flat Texas to the Tetons. And we were having a baby in two months. We were turning our lives upside down, but for good reason!One thing that I didn’t count on was how different life would be living in a log cabin. I figured it would be the same as the other places I’d lived, only made of logs. Perhaps it would…

five easy ways to hardscape a log home

The goal of modern landscaping is to strike a harmonious balance between “soft” and “hard” elements. Hardscaping is the addition of non-living features, such as tile, stone, concrete and metal, to natural elements like trees, flowers, shrubs and other greenery. We spoke with Jerry DiFabrizio, owner of Tampa Tile, for five easy ways to incorporate hardscape into your landscape:Create a Beautiful PatioA patio can be the central focus of your yard design. It’s a great place to socialize with friends, enjoy some downtime and have family gatherings. When placed close to the back of your home, it can serve as an extension, which increases your log home’s livable square footage and its value.As for materials, choices are abundant. According to Jerry, “The key for log homes would be a very…
