A log home in Ohio becomes the backdrop for countless family memories.
The kitchen is connected to the dining room and great room, so even when Marie is busy whipping up her culinary creations, she can still be a part of any gathering.“Some people have a view of log homes, especially if they’re not familiar with them, as a dark, dingy one-room space,” says Brandon. But once those same people see a modern log home, everything changes. “Our friends and family can’t believe us how warm, inviting and cozy our house is.” For eight years, the couple researched log homes and collected magazine and book clippings in order to create a floorplan that was just right for them. Even the major furniture purchases they made were geared toward the classic log home they had in mind. Now, Brandon and Marie are so enamored with the log-home lifestyle that conventional stick-built houses have lost their appeal. “I don’t think we’d go back to a traditional home,” says Marie. “There’s something unique about the warmth of a log home. Once you put so much thought and time into something, it becomes a part of your soul. We simply love this place.” Home Details: Square footage: 2,600 Builder: Capron Construction Log Company: Real Log Homes
