||Cover Home for February 2004
Long, full-round log walls coupled with pitched dormers and half-round windows make Maple Island Log Home’s Chippewa model a beautiful sight, inside and out.
The great room design takes advantage of soaring ceilings with large windows and glass doors incorporated in the three log walls. There’s an unparalleled view in every direction, with or without the telescope to see the mountains in the distance or celestial bodies even farther away. Wood floors lined with elegant area rugs run throughout the great room and into the dining area and kitchen, though the ceiling drops to the standard 8-feet and is lined with log rafters to create a cozier atmosphere for mealtime conversation.
Even more private is the carpet-lined family room in its own separate wing. Here, nooks created by log corners provide for both a window seat and a corner office area complete with ceiling-high bookshelves.
The decor of this 3,110-square-foot home combines regal leather and Oriental rug patterns with the offbeat look of different log diameters and splashes of blue and green accents to create a comfortable living space in every room.
