You’ll want to go inside this wonderful Scandinavian design cabin , set away along a remote bay of Lake Tremblant deep in the Laurentian Mountains of Canada. This log cabin is the product of owner Paul Perron’s 15-year hunt for the ideal piece of property, since he had always wanted to build a log cabin but also wanted it to be in the correct location. Perron was seeking for an isolated location with no close neighbors, a piece of property close to the major thoroughfare for easy access, flat ground to build the cabin on, and a large lot with a private road. The existing private road was critical; as a real estate agent, he understood how difficult it would be to obtain a municipality road-construction permission. His occupation should have made his search simple and straightforward, as he was familiar with a wide range of properties for sale in the Laurentian region where he was seeking. Even yet, it took him 15 years to find the perfect spot.
The 180 acres in Saint-Donat where the cabin construction lies overlooks a private lake and is surrounded by a forest teeming with wildlife that he eventually found for this gorgeous log cabin building. The log cabin structure is small, measuring 30 by 38 feet for a total of 1140 square feet, with an 8-foot balcony along the length of the wood cabin. The wood cabin has a two-story garage with double doors that sits adjacent to the almost-as-large log cabin. Both cabin structures blend in wonderfully with the natural surroundings of the location.
Following the log house building, Perron had to be patient once more as the log house shrank, causing the logs to check. This is an unavoidable occurrence with this type of log house structure. One option is to just leave the log house to rest and settle naturally once it has been built. Perron waited four years for his log house to settle before moving in.
The log cabin is constructed of Swedish-cope logs that are round on the inside and out and have a half-moon-shaped cove on the bottom. The saddle notched corners of the stacked log house walls are a traditional corner style in a Swedish-cope wall system. Perron chose a steeply pitched metal roof with a substantial layer of insulation to keep the interior warm throughout the hard Canadian winters and avoid snow accumulation on the log cabin. Slate is used on the ground floor of the rustic style log house in the kitchen, dining area, and living room. The stone also dominates the living room’s wood fireplace. Stone is a fantastic choice for high-traffic areas in the house since it is robust and resists scratches, cracks, and chipping. Another advantage of stone is that it distributes heat uniformly and efficiently, making it ideal for the radiant in-floor heating system used in log homes. Because of its southwest orientation, the Canadian log cabin building receives plenty of sunlight, which the house plants like.
