"We wanted to do something that had a bit of a Western feel to it," says Dave of his decision to build a home almost entirely from handcrafted logs. "We have some pretty massive pieces of wood in here."

"For people considering a log home, finding a competent, reputable builder is job number one," says Dave, who gives credit for his breathtaking Idaho home to PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes, its design team and builder Kurt Mitchell.

"We put a hand-scraped white-oak floor in the kitchen and on the whole first floor," says Dave, who chose the material both for its beauty and its ability to endure wear and tear from his two playful golden retrievers.
