Real-Life Stock to Custom Floorplans
Homeowner: Dave Cutrell
by: Leah Kerkman

The homeowner:
Dave Cutrell, in Massachusetts

Their log home company:
Real Log Homes, in Hartland, Vermont

Their starting point:

“The Mendon”

What he changed:

Dave wanted to create a separate living quarters for his son, Andy. Since zoning laws prohibited two structures on the same property, he and Real Log Homes connected the two spaces by a breezeway. Dave also wanted a the master suite on the main level, so that bathroom was expanded and then connected to his bedroom by the walk-in closet. He also added a bay window in his room.

Upstairs, rather than have two bedrooms, Dave requested a study accessible through the bedroom. He also connected the upstairs bath to the bedroom, essentially creating a second master suite on the upper level.

His take:

Dave craved an open and airy log home. “I wanted the house to be very bright, because the first thing people think about log homes is that they’re dark.” Dave achieved this by increasing the size of the rooms, making them more spacious and light-filled. “It’s a big house for just two bedrooms because the individual rooms are so large.”
