Light-filled living room
With glass doors opening to the front deck, the living room is perfectly situated for gazing at the lake.

Lakeside log home
The staircase that extends from the front deck leads to a log walkway to lake. The south side of the house includes a door to the basement, which Peter Leyh uses for a workshop and storage.

Loft with a view
To maximize the view of the lake from the loft’s sitting area, casement windows were substituted for the double-hung ones in the original plan.

Log home deck
Perched 100 feet above the shore, the main-level’s pine deck is a perfect spot for watching the sun set over the lake.

Lakeside log home
With the peak of the roof located just below the tree line and the organic look of the hand-peeled logs, Peter Leyh’s house seems to have grown naturally on the wooded hillside.

Custom kitchen
The kitchen’s dramatic granite countertops are balanced with the dining area’s black Windsor chairs and wrought-iron light fixture.
