This 2006 Parade Home won 8 Awards for Builder Concept, Craftsmanship, Design and Interiors. The Classic Rectangular floor plan with gable-end windows feels much larger than its 2,600 square feet due to the high ceilings, open floor plan and expansive decks and patios. A central kitchen is key to entertaining...and allows more log walls and windows than a exterior kitchen plan. The three-story design is not only traditional in log construction, but also the most economical way to build on a sloped lot. The double-eagle head carvings make this home both unique and memorable. This home was featured on the cover of Log Home Living Magazine in February 2009.
