HOW FAR CAN YOU TAKE THE CLASSIC LOG CABIN DESIGN?
If you had the chance to just go wild with your log cabin design, what design will you create? For Simon Auger, he designed a unique Scandinavian style home in the Eastern Townships, Mont-Orford in which he features not one, not two, but three materials when constructing the cabin. The result—a home that looks like it’s made of 3 different houses stacked on top of each other.
The three materials are an insulated concrete form for the lower section of the cabin, red-painted recycled pine planks for the main floor, and finally, cedar logs were used for the second and third floors.
One of the main features of his home is the 18th-century Italian loggia style balcony, which is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea as you overlook the rich vegetation surrounding the area.
The guest bedroom is indeed spartan in decor, furnished with only a double bed that Auger fabricated himself using pieces of solid wood. The main bathroom is lit by three windows, including one in the shower-bathtub stall. The ceramic floor is heated.
The vanity was made by a friend who is a cabinet-maker and is topped with a modern-design washbasin. A beautifully crafted staircase made of cherry wood curls its way to the top floor. The steps embedded in a vertical standing beam have no risers, giving the ensemble the grace of a sculpture.
