Eagleton a roomy, contemporary log home

By
From page HS11 | December 06, 2013 |

Outdoor and indoor living spaces are well-supplied in the Eagleton, a contemporary log home designed as a vacation retreat. But this plan is also spacious and well-equipped enough to be used as a year-round residence or retirement home.

In addition to rustic charm, log homes are renowned for their longevity, ease of maintenance and inherent insulating qualities. Inside, the logs can be left visible or covered by flat walls.

A wide V-shaped deck echoes the shape of the richly windowed front facade, while mirroring the structure’s generally A-frame shape. The deck transitions into a wide covered porch that wraps around one side.

The vaulted great room is easily the most striking living area. Sparkling windows, stacked three high, fill most of the front wall, creating a cathedral-like ambiance.

When the sun is in hiding, a free-standing wood stove offers warmth and color. Framed by a brick hearth, it nestles in a front corner by the windows. Build in a cold climate and you can enjoy watching a cozy fire and softly falling snowflakes at the same time.

The L-shaped kitchen is totally open to the great room, with range and oven built into a work island with an eating bar. Lazy Susan shelving keeps food items organized and makes it easy to reach everything in the corner cabinet. Laundry appliances, plus cabinets, a deep sink and a folding counter are across the hall.

Secondary bedrooms are at the rear. Upstairs, the Eagleton’s owners’ suite has a double walk-in closet as well as a dual vanity. From the wide loft outside the bedroom, you can overlook the great room or gaze out at the landscape beyond.
