A Change in Plans

Af­ter they built a log home over­look­ing Cen­ter Hill Lake in Ten­nessee in 2004, Cyn­thia and John Fitz­martin didn’t just sit back and call it a day. In 2006, they added a garage and a front porch, then in 2014, they de­cided their 10-year-old home needed a makeover.

Why a log home: The Fitz­martins like the strong look and solid feel of log walls, not to men­tion the fresh aroma of the wood. Us­ing logs for the ad­di­tion was just a given for them.

Most im­por­tant fea­tures: The ad­di­tion needed to en­large the great room and pro­vide a more for­mal eat­ing space. The cou­ple wanted more out­door space to en­joy their view of the lake. The ca­st­iron stove felt cramped in its spot un­der the stairs, so they wanted to move it. And the kitchen and mas­ter suite needed help, too.
