dream with your eyes wide open

Dream homes come in all shapes and sizes. Some people long for a tiny cabin nestled so tightly in the forest you almost have to strain to see it. For others, the dream entails a rambling log ranch in the wide-open plains or at the foothills of a majestic mountain — a house so grand, even the scenery gets a little jealous.Inspiration is everywhere, if you’re open to it. The intent of this issue, our summer Dream Home Showcase, is to highlight the pioneering ways log home owners, designers, builders and manufacturers are using logs (and the surrounding landscape) to create innovative places to live.

kitchens that sizzle

A decidedly European vibe percolates in the kitchen of this salvaged-log-and-timber hybrid home. French chestnut cabinets reside next to a narrow Irish bluestone-capped island. Golden travertine perimeter counters and hammered-copper sinks add a warm glow to the room. (Winterwoods Homes photo)Variety is the spice of life — and a successful kitchen. Pairing contrasting shades of stain and paint, such as the tar-tinted Shaker-style cabinetry, which boasts streaks of dark green, alongside the crisp white cooktop island creates a fresh and polished space in this traditional log home. (1867 Confederation Log & Timber Homes photo)Talk about a kitchen with all the right ingredients! This character-filled setting boasts custom cabinetry built from recycled hemlock. An antique canoe was repurposed to cast task lighting over the center island that features a live-edge wood…

the 8th annual log homes month kicks off in july

Since the earliest European colonies, log homes have dotted the American landscape. While many traditions from that time have fallen by the wayside, log homes continue to be an institution. According to a survey by Active Interest Media, more than 10,000 new log and timber frame homes were produced in 2017, and their popularity continues to grow.Representing many of the top log and timber home manufacturers in North America, the National Association of Home Builders’ Log and Timber Homes Council is excited to celebrate National Log Home Open House Month this July. Introduced by now retired Wisconsin Congressman Reid Ribble in 2012, the Congressional Record recognizes the log home industry, and the men and women vital to this special sect of housing.“July is always an exciting time of the year…

great read!

A backyard swimming pool is a refreshing addition to any home (not to mention an excellent insurance policy that the grandkids will visit often). However, log home owners typically crave a very natural landscape, and an oversized, bright blue, chlorinated-water-filled tub may not fit in with that vision. Solution? A natural swimming pool.In our “Take it Outside” column this month, we explore the basics to building a natural swimming pool, but if you’re looking for an in-depth guide covering everything from design and materials to sustaining water quality, look no further than “How to Build a Natural Swimming Pool” by Wolfram Kircher and Andreas Thon.In addition to helping you create a perfect natural pool, the authors also offer tips on how to tackle undesirable guests (think mosquitoes and reptiles), removing…
