Log Home living at it’s best.
Living spaces can be grandiose, large and open, great rooms, with majestic stone fire places, or cozy warm quiet spaces, to relax and unwind in, log walls create warmth, comfort and have that strong I feel safe appeal about them, I certainly feel safe in my log home.
The heart of every home.
Another bonus of exposed wood inside your home is that it rests comfortably beside all other finishes. Stone, glass, ceramics, painted drywall, dressed-wood, chrome, aluminium, steel, wrought iron, polycarbonate, and furnishings all look great next to natural wood.
We have had many kitchens fitted into our log homes, and each customer is different in what they want, its your home you can have any style you like.
From beautiful deep coloured timber kitchens and polished wooden tops to modern white or colours you love, with beautiful granite or marble tops, even the wooden kitchens that are installed all still have the modern touches like soft close draws, integrated appliances, beautiful appliances, cookers and extraction systems or even more traditional cookers like Rayburns or other wood fired stoves that can also heat your under floor heating system…
Where the dreams are made.
All log homes can have large spacious master bedrooms, with walk in robes, ensuits, balconies for coffee or wine, or small compact bunk rooms for droves of grandkids, my kids loved their warm cozy strong log bedrooms, and they can hardly damage them.
Mezzanine floors, Lofts and balconies
Most log home designs have an abundance of vertical space in them, and you don’t have to scale up to alpine lodge sizes to appreciate the charm of these upper flooring layout options. These lofts can contain bedrooms, bunk rooms, bathrooms, studies or offices, or can just be open plan lounging areas, they are always the warmest place in the home and by incorporating dormer windows, skylights, or glass gable ends these spaces become amazingly beautiful.
Once you’ve decided on an upper floor you’ll need to get up there of course, and we have those options well covered. Whether your staircase is a proud centre-piece, a slender spiral, or a corner-stair it will be beautiful.
Log posts can add character to your home, and can provide extra support to the structure or purely to add to the aesthetics of your log home. I personally love log posts, and wish id put more in my own log home, people are naturally attracted to them and they become focal points of most homes, where people can lean on and touch the real tree.
A very popular option in homes we’ve built. A particularly effective way to distinguish your home from a traditional cabin style.
I get asked many times if we have other walls not log in our Log homes, and the answer is yes, the log walls are definitely the structural walls of any log home, and any other load bearing or feature or dividing walls the customer wants, But you don’t need foot thick log walls around every toilet wardrobe etc etc, these partition walls if you like can be conventional, for folk that do not like Gib walls, these can still be clad in timber or paneling or any other medium the client wishes. These contrasting walls make a beautiful combination with a log wall. The intersection of these contrasting walls actually become a feature and the untrained eye marvels at the transition.
