This is a cozy, window-bright log home plan, designed for construction as a vacation retreat. But there's no reason a single person or small family couldn't live in it year-round, if they desired.
Log exteriors are noted for their ease of maintenance, and equally impressive for their natural insulating qualities. Interior walls can be as rustic or sophisticated as the owners' tastes.
In this plan, the great room and kitchen flow together, creating a large open space, naturally illuminated by the light that washes in through six large windows and two small ones. The high ceiling is vaulted, adding to the sense of spaciousness.
Modern and well equipped, the kitchen is also surprisingly large for a dwelling with only 960 square feet of interior floor space. Oven, microwave and dishwasher are built-ins, and you can quickly turn out piles of hotcakes or burgers using the griddle in the work island's cooktop.
Cabinets below boost storage capacity, and the large island also adds more counter space. A roomy pantry is around the corner, right past the compact washer/dryer combination. Another small storage area nestles into the space by the rear door. Pegs there are ideal for hanging coats, and it has a few shelves above.
A vaulted ceiling adds volume to the bedroom. It has one front-facing window, a closet, and another small storage section with built-in shelves. The study could be used as another bedroom, if desired, but it has no closet. Pull-down stair access to the attic is here.
The bathroom is compact. Even so, it has an oversized shower, and is conveniently located for quick access through the screened porch and rear door.
