Log home bedroom
The home features identical master bedrooms (both located on the first floor), which each feature its own private walkout porch. The light color of the logs allows the knots and imperfections in the wood to show through, adding a timeworn look to the room.

Log home great room
The combination of wood and drywall used throughout the home adds aesthetic appeal, while breaking up the spaces. In the great room, the couples used paint paired with beadboard to visually separate the height of the walls.

Log home kitchen
The open floor plan in the main living area means Paula and Sarah can still feel connected while preparing meals. In the kitchen, the black and white granite countertops pair nicely with the warm tone of the woods.

Log home bathroom
Modern meets traditional in this bathroom where contemporary touches like recessed lighting and freestanding glass basins exist alongside rustic tile countertops and a traditional claw-foot tub with iron spigot.

Log home exterior, porch
The 80-foot deck that wraps three-quarters of the way around the house is the couples' favorite place to enjoy evening meals. To keep it inviting rain or shine, they covered the deck and added overhead fans and plush lounge furniture. A few easy-to-care-for hanging and potted plants add a burst of color to their wooded surroundings.

Log home sitting room
For a fresh look, the Owens and Masseys paired rich hues and textures that create instant warmth with bold patterns that add a spunky flair.

Log home basement, wet bar
The friends' favored mix of wrought iron and wood is showcased beautifully in the built-in basement bar. "The combination brings a level of authenticity to the older look, but still keeps it modern," explains Marshall. A 20-foot iron stair railing, made by a local blacksmith, and iron balusters interspersed on the deck railing continue the theme.
