“We’ve got the elk antlers up there, one of the most gorgeous things God ever created,” James says of the wall decoration above the dining table. To build the shelving above the kitchen windows and cabinets, he went purchased scrap wood from a local saw mill. He found old spike like what you might find in the gold mines and coated each with iron oxide for a rustic finish. He drove the spikes into the log walls to hold up the slab shelving. A unique feature in the kitchen is the roll-away butcher block top island, which James built by adding the block top and locking caster wheels to a double set of standard cabinets. “It gives us the opportunity to move things around and create extra space.” The blue, red and green cabinets help to define the kitchen space from the great room.
