One of the reasons we chose our lot for our log home was for the view it offered. The view is of a small, quiet lake. I loved the idea (and am now experiencing it) of sitting on my deck looking at the lake and the mature trees across the way. Windows became important in our endeavor - thus we had the 2-story living area with a wall of windows facing the lake. Even my nice-size kitchen window was perfect for viewing the wooded lot next door. In retrospect, the only thing I wish I had done differently was to add a bay window to the side wall of our dining area - it would have afforded more woodsy views. Also, maybe a small window in the bathroom - I could've hung up a small bird feeder outside so while you are sitting on the toilet...oh never mind. I'm getting carried away!
Log Cabin Tip: Be aware of your surroundings in choosing your lot and pick the placement and size of the windows to compliment your favorite views.
