2014-JRA for Excellence in Marketing and Home Design
Winner: Log Home, Under 2,000 square feet
The main focus on this one-of-a-kind home was to capture the European flavor the client was accustomed to in his homeland, while blending into the Texas Hill Country surroundings.
The exterior elements of the home were pure and simple: the all-American log home. The standing seam metal roof captured the remainder of the clean-line look the client desired.
The interior is where the fun and the challenge began by combining the crisp, clean and light of contemporary architecture with the warm, rugged look of a log home. Southland Log Homes accomplished this from the ground up with white gel-coat poured flooring and the remainder in a light bamboo wood throughout.
Other key features of the home include:
- Use of low VOC paints and stains
- 19 SEER air conditioning
- Foam insulation
