If you dream of living the rustic lifestyle every day, how about choosing one of our log home plans? These designs can range from seasonal cabins to luxurious year-round estates. The logs can form the actual framing and structure of the home, or simply be added to the exterior for a natural look. The logs can be either “handcrafted,” with peeled lumber giving an authentic appearance, or “milled,” for a more consistent look, with natural imperfections removed. A stone chimney, a metal roof, multiple gables, charming dormers and a welcoming porch can lend more style and interest to the exterior of log house plans. The interior may offer open floor plans, a stone fireplace, dramatic vaulted ceilings and tall windows.
