CREATING THE IDEAL LOG HOME

HERE ARE SOME TIPS AND ADVICE TO POINT YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION WHEN DESIGNING A LOG CABIN

What makes a log cabin the perfect log home? Well, this featured cabin has a couple of design choices you can use as inspiration for your design!

Nature will always be a part of a log home. When designing a log cabin, do your best to include the environment to your design. A log home is designed to bring you closer to nature, after all.

Open up your home with large windows and glass doors to take advantage of the beautiful scenery. Let in more of that natural light to warm up the interior of your home.

Take full advantage of the free space you have! Focus on a spacious design by making use of open floor plans. Vaulted ceilings work well with this, giving your log cabin a feeling of grandeur.

Consider what the location has to offer.
Don’t focus too much on your log cabin. Look around your home’s would-be location. Are their opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking? Are you aiming for full-on privacy, or do you still need to be within a convenient distance from civilization?

Log cabins are more than just houses in the middle of the woods. It’s the experience these log homes have to offer that really completes the whole package.

The 7,391-square-foot log cabin estate on the back of Aspen Mountain was decorated by Griffith. It features a gourmet kitchen, billiards room, and wine cellar. The five-bedroom, six-bath house is located at 46 Lower Hurricane Road.
