Big Screen Bliss (left).

For some, a nor­mal TV just won’t do. Want to feel like you’re part of the ac­tion? Then a pro­jec­tion tele­vi­sion, built-in sur­round sound and ad­justable light­ing are musts.

Catch of the Day (be­low).

You won’t have to fish for com­pli­ments from your fel­low an­glers with a fully stocked fish­ing nook like this. Nat­u­ral light­ing makes ty­ing your own flies eas­ier.

A Gamer’s Par­adise (above).

Why have a mere game room when you can have a per­sonal ar­cade? With smart ar­range­ment, you can pack a lot of ac­tiv­i­ties in a small space.

House Wine (right).

Does your in­ner oenophile crave a per­sonal wine cave? You’re in luck — log homes and wine cel­lars are a nat­u­ral fit, and they can be as sim­ple or so­phis­ti­cated as your taste in vino.

Arts & Crafts (above & right).

A sec­ond-story dormer or loft is prime ter­ri­tory for a stu­dio. Large win­dows not only pro­vide nat­u­ral light to nur­ture your tal­ent, they usher in an end­less source of in­spi­ra­tion.

Lock, Stock and Bar­rel (above).

If gun col­lect­ing is your pas­sion, a ded­i­cated, se­cure room is the way to go. The gun­stock-style log post is right at home in this firearms room, which is dec­o­rated to per­fec­tion for the avid hunts­man.

Lofty Fit­ness Goals (right).

Find­ing time and space for ex­er­cise is tough. Let your loft pull dou­ble duty as an of­fice and fit­ness area. Hav­ing the equip­ment in plain sight serves as a con­stant re­minder that you need to get your daily steps in.

Ready for the Run (left).

With a ski-in/ski-out room in your log home, hit­ting the slopes will be all down­hill from there. The wide de­sign makes ma­neu­ver­abil­ity easy and per­sonal lock­ers keep your gear or­ga­nized.
