A COUPLE’S MODERN TAKE ON THE CLASSIC LOG CABIN

LARRY AND DAWN SHARE WHAT THEY DID TO GIVE THEIR LOG CABIN A PERSONAL TOUCH WITH EMPHASIS ON TOGETHERNESS

A couple with an unconventional yet adorable way of meeting was the start of something truly special. Larry and Dawn planned and built their very own cabin, but added their own little twist.

Their 10,000 square foot log cabin is a sight to behold, with generous amounts of wide-open interior space. The vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and the rustic log walls are all part and parcel of a classic log cabin.

The twist the couple gave to their cabin home was the use of modern yet simple furniture. This gave the cabin some much-needed contrast, balancing all the elements for the overall feel of the home.

To top it all off, their home is set on 100 acres of private property, giving them all the peace and privacy they need. Not only that, but their cabin is actually a lake home, situated on a 20-acre lake for the full nature retreat experience.

“[It] was one of the first things we talked about when we met,” says Dawn Huff of getting to know her now-husband, Larry.

“We said that one day we were going to build a log cabin on the side of a hill and have a dumbwaiter in it. We said it at the same time—‘Jinx, jinx, you owe me a Coke!’—and ‘dumbwaiter’ became our inside joke.”

The couple both appreciated the integrity that a log cabin represents, as Dawn notes that “the hard labor and effort put into the original cabins juxtaposed with the simplicity of the early American lifestyle” implies virtues to which the hard-working husband and wife can relate.
