1: The writ­ing nook on the up­per level fea­tures one of sev­eral cus­tom-de­signed antler lights — in­clud­ing elk and sev­eral species of deer — with a polo-an­tiqued fin­ish by Jeff White of Lit­tle Big Horns.

2: The first two stairs lead­ing up the stair­case were chis­eled from large slabs of moss rock weigh­ing more than two thou­sand pounds. The steps tran­si­tion to re­claimed beams with cus­tom-milled oak treads. This cre­ates dura­bil­ity which stands up to wear and tear from ski boots dur­ing the win­ter.

3: The in­te­rior walls in the home, like the ones found here in the mas­ter bed­room, are full-log walls — not fram­ing with log sid­ing. Some are shaved to in­cor­po­rate dry­wall el­e­ments or cre­ate a re­cessed nook where the cab­i­nets tran­si­tion to the sur­round­ing log walls.

4 & 5: The walls on the lower level are real stone ve­neer that ex­tends to the wet bar tucked be­neath the stairs. The bar has the same Her­beau oil-rubbed bronze faucets found in the kitchen and a hand-forged metal bar top. The unique char­ac­ter logs found through­out the Bersins’ home give this large res­i­dence un­par­al­leled charm.
