Log home in a field
The main structure is made from eastern white pine, complete with a traditional Perma-Chink sealant and finish. The master suite is encased in board-and-batten siding—a mix of spruce, pine and fir.

Log home exterior
Juxtaposed lines, clearly defined by the corrugated rusted-metal roof and 2-foot-deep overhangs, give the appearance that the home has been added on to over the years.

Log home porch
The side porch makes the perfect spot for relaxing.

Log home laundry room
The laundry room provides a new level of style to common household chores.

Log home foyer
The foyer gives guests an immediate impression of the home's full character. Antique chairs flank a vintage card table and a rosewood armoire makes its presence known as guests stride over the circle-cut yellow-pine plank floors.

Log home kitchen
The kitchen, family and dining rooms flow easily, one to the next, while still providing plenty of private areas. Stained in seven different shades, the log walls lend character, depth and a sense of muted drama to the rooms.

Log home laundry room
Cedar windows from Kolby and Kolby (stained red) bring the outdoors into the laundry room. The lantern, by W.T. Kerkman of Virginia, is specially fitted to the wall with hidden wiring. The copper washtub, which was originally created for making apple butter, was cut to make an unusual sink on the lower countertop. It even has a disposal to chew up stems, stalks and stamens.

Log home bedroom
The master bedroom's charm is unmistakably Maryann, in its mix of peeling sunflower-stained plaster walls, fine porcelain lamps and the ornately painted antique doors affixed to the bedside cabinet. The doors, painted with birds and flowers, are part of a Chinese marriage tradition expressing symbolic wishes for good fortune. And the pocket doors at either side of the bed (which lead to the his-and-hers master bath) were reclaimed from a 19th century American monastery.

  1. […] This log home complete with a rusted corrugated metal roof looks like a historic pioneer cabin, but get a little closer and you’ll see some contemporary details, like brickwork on the foundation and chimney. Created by Hearthstone Log Homes and built by Champion Construction, this new Western North Carolina home was made using rustic beams of Eastern White Pine. […]
