Log Home Floor Plans
Evolving from the necessity to build a basic dwelling from the abundant trees available to New World settlers, Log home plans have become the go-to choice for mountain and lakeside vacation homes. Their hewn log walls evoke rustic simplicity, but their features range from basic necessities to lodge-like grandeur, with vaulted ceilings, timber trusses, and massive stone hearths. Open floor plans make the most of small spaces or expand to accommodate multi-generational getaways, walls of windows capture the views offered by vacation settings, and cozy porches and decks almost always make an appearance.
- Walls built of stacked logs, or stick-built and faced with log siding
