This description was written by the Owner (also the interior designer):
Interior design was my main focus. Since the kitchen is such a hub and the floor plan very open, I started there. Not wanting to be just another mountain house, I decided on vintage white cabinets and black accents. Paneling on the appliances, pantry, refrigerator and island as “furniture” features made for a sophisticated look. But being a mountain home, an informal allure was important.

I believe the final touch, the addition of the walnut butcher block, married all of the elements beautifully.
Designed to capture the valley views, this custom home boasts high-end finishes and impeccable craftsmanship. The walk out level includes a two-car heated garage, a family room with stained concrete floors and two bedrooms.
The full bath that they share is tiled with soft, porous marble. All of the floors in the entire home are heated with a hydronic in-floor system, making the hard surface floors warm and comfortable all year long. Continue reading

The logs are milled by a lathe in a factory and cut to length for the specific plan that the customer chooses. There is no limit to the design which can be created with a kit log home.
