Log Home Design's 2nd Annual Log Home Design Awards

In any competition, from a second-grade spelling bee to the Super Bowl, there are winners and there are losers. And while you’ll certainly stick by your phonics-impaired granddaughter or your cherished losing sports team, you shouldn’t even think about supporting a less-than-stellar design for your log home.

Thankfully, there’s the second annual Log Home Design Awards to help you find the champion design just perfect for you.
Now into our second year, 2008’s Log Home Design Awards escaped the fate of the terrible twos. In fact, we had more log home companies and designers enter, more overall designs to choose from and a really tough time narrowing down the field. But all that means is a better selection for you to browse. In the following pages, we’ve selected the best and the brightest log home plans and design elements in 10 different categories—from the most creative staircase design to the best use of outdoor spaces. Enjoy!
