When Greg and I first started dreaming about our log home, I used to review the floor plan books constantly. I would sketch what I wanted on paper or superimpose a plan I found on paper and then mark my changes. I would picture myself in each room and think about what I wanted versus what I needed. Of course, what we could afford was always the deciding factor!
I knew I wanted large bathrooms, the traditional loft, an open floor plan with the kitchen/dining/living room area and a wall of windows looking onto a lake.
Homes are such an emotional investment and we all have our own ideas on what completes our "nest." For you log home dreamers - or even if you're not, I posted some of my favorite floor plans from Hiawatha Log Homes. Take a look and tell me which one(s) are your favorite and why. Is there a plan you like but something you would change to fit your needs/tastes?
This is the plan Greg and I had originally decided upon and then at the last moment decided the Tall Timbers was for us.
This is our log home. We modified the interior floor plan and added a walk-out basement.
