Logs for Life
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.
