Log Home Living - - Floor Plans -

This log home de­sign gives the own­ers ev­ery­thing they need while pro­tect­ing their wet­land lot.

With their daugh­ters grown, mar­ried and with chil­dren of their own, Yvonne and Jim’s ex­tended fam­ily had out­grown its small cabin on a lake in Michi­gan’s Up­per Penin­sula. The couple de­cided to build a new log home to make room for fam­ily and cap­ture gor­geous sun­sets over the lake. Why a log home: Yvonne and Jim love log homes so much they now own three: “Our full-time res­i­dence in Wis­con­sin and our two va­ca­tion homes in the U. P.,” Jim says. Most im­por­tant fea­tures: The new log cabin needed to be a base camp for fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties like hik­ing, ATV and snow­mo­bile rid­ing, hunt­ing, fish­ing and swim­ming. And they wanted it to be a warm wel­come get­away to re­turn to as of­ten as they could. For Jim, who en­joys hunt­ing, space to dis­play his full- body tro­phy mounts was a must- have.
