When southern plantation meets industrial elegance, you will get a home unlike any other. As second-generation owners of the land the Patterson Home was built on, the owners felt it was time to expand the way log homes have traditionally been built — first by developing a new log profile, the 10” Round, along with new design concepts. While it is distinctively different in comparison to more traditional styles, it encompasses their passion for log home living. The home is filled with touches of all things Southern — chickens, cows, farm décor, and reflects our living on a farm and farming over 1,000 acres of row crop, cattle, home grown garden vegetables the owners sell to the public. The home owners love timber frame and wanted to implement it into their bedroom to have an even different look and feel from the main part of the home. To achieve a high contrast color throughout the house the trim was stained in Black Walnut, and the logs themselves in the kitchen were stained Gentry Grey.
