HY­BRID HAVEN

Log Home Living - - Floor Plans -

Big enough to en­ter­tain yet cozy enough for two, this hy­brid plan of­fers the best of ev­ery­thing.

With an eye to the fu­ture, June and Ron Cal­vano wanted to build a quaint get­away on their moun­tain lot in Ge­or­gia, hop­ing to even­tu­ally make it their full-time home in re­tire­ment. Their five-acre lot is heav­ily wooded and al­lows them to enjoy the peace­ful­ness of the re­gion. Why a log home: The Cal­vanos chose 8-inch half-log sid­ing for their home’s ex­te­rior, which they mixed with board-and-bat­ten ac­cents. “We like the look that the mix of tex­tures gives,” June says. Most im­por­tant fea­tures: The home needed to be big enough to enjoy with fam­ily and friends, June ex­plains, “but small enough to keep its quaint at­mos­phere when it’s only the two of us.” The couple wanted open liv­ing on the main level with a fire­place and a loft above.
