Located on almost 2.5 tranquil acres, this unique wood construction estate is unparalleled. There is a barn and stables on the property as well as a feed and water system and flex rooms in the loft area. The log home’s detached, triple-car garage seems like it was built at the same time. As you enter the home from the slate walkway, take in the high ceilings and beautiful log house detailing. All of the triple-paned windows let in plenty of natural light. The comfortable stove heats the main living quarters and climbs to the loft/bonus area upstairs.
The log house includes a wonderful kitchen with a JennAir stove and abundant storage. Both the primary living area and the primary sleeping quarters benefit from radiant heating. There are two bedrooms and a mudroom on the main floor. Upstairs you’ll find the extra room loft and master suite. Take advantage of the yard’s fruit trees and open space all year long on your enormous covered terrace. There are various perks to living and owning a log home that includes the following.
You won’t have to worry about off-gassing in a log home like you may with synthetic materials. With the help of low-VOC (volatile organic compound) stains and routine HVAC maintenance, you can make your home a healthier place for your family to spend time in.
Many people believe that log homes are bad for the environment because they cut down trees, however, this is not the case. The use of standing dead timbers (trees that died while still standing, usually as a result of insects or fire) in the construction of log homes has the added benefit of enhancing forest health and decreasing the risk of wildfires. Log house firms that employ live trees support reforestation, and, unlike planned 2-by-4s, the milling process for log homes lowers building waste and lessens the carbon footprint in the process. In addition, the waste produced by the manufacturing process can be recycled by several log producers into mulch or biofuel to be used in the heating of their mills.
