Great Room and Ceiling This log home rocks! (Which explains how it made its way to the cover of the September 2003 issue of Log Home Living.) Rocky Mountain Log Homes combined native fieldstone with 12-inch-diameter, custom-milled lodgepole pine for a home that is big on both drama and comfort. The design features a great room boasting a 24-foot-high cathedral ceiling, U-shaped kitchen, dining area, family room, master bedroom suite, two additional bedrooms and three full and two half-baths?all masterfully enclosed within 4,600 square feet of wonderful, rustic living space.Colorful native fieldstone graces the great room's wood-burning fireplace. Three-inch-wide maple strip flooring mingles with the interior logs. Overhead, multiple mica light fixtures with metal pinecone detailing cast a warm glow over the entire room. Long, narrow casement windows flank the fireplace, inviting a cool breeze during those months when a blazing fire isn't required. The kitchen is designed to be beautiful, functional and durable. The rich color of the raised-panel cherry cabinetry stands out against the blond logs and pale tile floor. A coordinating tile backsplash features a decorative mosaic behind the stainless steel cooktop. Mottled granite countertops contain flecks of black, rust and tan and provide a low maintenance stain- and heat-resistant surface for the home owners to work on.  Hickory counter stools line the kitchen's practical island bar, which is faced in the same fieldstone as the rest of the home's stonework. A central island adds workspace and serves a storage facility for cookbooks and wine.Upstairs, two generously sized bedrooms each have its own bathroom and two walk-in closets. One bedroom even boasts its own fireplace, which shares a chimney with the expansive master suite's fireplace below. The loft's powder room is a practical addition to the home's second level, as are the supplementary storage areas. Outside, the home harmonizes seamlessly with its surroundings. Mature trees tower above the metal roof that tops this log and stone masterpiece, which is both elegant and inviting at the same time.
