Log Cabin Love: Summer Edition

aalog
In helping a client to design built-in beds for their Adirondack Mountain home I stumbled upon Lands End Development based in Crosslake, Minnesota and was blown away. My clients home is a traditional log home which is what this company specializes in and their creative approach to building was just what I was looking for.

A log cabin that is built with quality craftsmanship and materials makes my job a breeze. Similar to this home owner my client has collected vintage pieces of American history from wagon wheels to farm equipment. We also used several Ralph Lauren fabrics and a warm color scheme to complement the texture of the wood.

Reclaimed lumber, field stone, wide plank floors and rolling doors, I think I am in heaven less the bear skin but some love the look.

Here are the beds that introduced me to Lands End, love the idea of the curtain for a softer look instead of a door. Exposed wood ceilings add to the log home charm.

Another fabulous built-in bed making room for the many guests that gather at lake homes. Further below a lovely screened in porch boasting a garden view continuing the Americana design aesthetic throughout.

I’ll leave you with this stunning view of this classic treasure and spectacular site. Have you ever built a log-home or lived in one, would love to hear about the experience.
