PrecisionCraft Log and Timber Homes: Murphy Residence
WINNER: Log Home Design (More than 4,000 sq. ft.)
Manufacturer: PrecisionCraft Log and Timber Homes
Builder: Joe Murphy
Lake views and natural light are abundant within this breathtaking handcrafted log home in North Carolina. A light interior stain, multiple clerestory windows, and clever site orientation work in tandem to create modern living spaces, while maintaining the warmth of cabin life. Although many people may think of log homes as dark and dated, this contemporary approach to authentic handcrafted log home design illustrates how bright and modern these classic homes can be. By mixing log walls with log post and beam construction, there is room for drywall to offset the wood tones, so that they do not overpower the spaces.
