All of the logs are scribed and fit perfectly with the log beneath it creating a seamless look for the exterior walls.

This not only creates a beautiful traditional look, but it also means that the log cabin will be more energy efficient too.
From the outside, the cabin looks very welcoming with a deck and double doors on one side. Inside, there is an L-shaped living room that gives free movement and an efficient line of sight throughout the living space making it perfect for families. Cathedral ceilings exude a charm that is indicative of the historical beginnings of such a home and the exposed beams inside give a strong and earthy feeling, as though the cottage has somehow been there forever. The loft area is huge and depending on your needs could be a lovely spot for a master suite complete with your own bathroom and walk-in closet. It could also be used as a kids sleeping area or even an office space. Entertaining guests will be a breeze thanks to the great room design on the main floor.
