Connie and Fred Woolard’s inviting log home features 6-by-12-inch kiln-dried eastern white pine with a hand-hewn finish on the exterior and a V-groove smooth finish on the interior. “We chose not to chink the exterior. We didn’t want stripes and were told it’s only for aesthetic value,” notes Connie. Custom steel plates were added to the porch beams for architectural interest. The stone steps were installed after the house was built.
