Logs for Life

Log Home Living - - FLOOR PLANS - by Jan­ice Brew­ster

For his 5-acre site near a county park around Lake Wazeecha in Wis­con­sin, Zach Parme­ter wanted a home that would fit in to the nat­u­ral beauty of the sur­round­ings and re­flect his love of the out­doors.

Why a log home: Not only did Zach grow up in a log home, he was raised in the log home busi­ness. So, even­tu­ally own­ing one of his own was a given. He knew he wanted a clas­sic log look on his home’s ex­te­rior; but in­side, his heart was set on an in­te­rior with more of a tim­ber-framed feel. Most im­por­tant fea­tures: For his new home, Zach pre­ferred a ranch style with two to three bed­rooms. Plenty of nat­u­ral light was a top pri­or­ity, too, along with con­trast­ing light-col­ored walls and wood planks on the ceil­ings. Over­all, his vi­sion was of a rus­tic home with a healthy dose of modern el­e­gance. And, he hoped to cap­ture both sun­rise and sun­set views.
