Light-filled living room with cathedral ceiling
The great room has a breathtaking wall of windows and a cathedral ceiling, but the main focus is the Cultured Stone fireplace.

Log home kitchen
The barn-red kitchen looks into the dining room and on to the great room fireplace.

Log home office
Mary's home office is in the east end of the house, off the master bedroom. The windows frame a beautiful view of the mountains in the distance.

Log home dining room
The dining room doesn't have walls around it; instead the areas are defined by differing ceiling heights.

Drywall in log home bedroom
Some of the home's interior walls are drywall, including the ones in the master bedroom.

Log home entry
The entry looks north towards the mountains, with two skylights overhead and many windows facing outward.

Mountain log home
To add a warm glow to the home's exterior, lights were hidden between log beams and under the roofline.
