One of a kind, “new/old” log house

We were commissioned to create a truly one of a kind build for our clients, who always had a dream to live in a log house. However, not just any log house, but one that appears to have stood the test of time, perhaps it had been there for 150 years. One with a story. Starting w/the most beautiful breathtaking view of the distant valleys and just 5 minutes from downtown Highlands NC, taking a Stan Dixon Architect design, we found materials from across the country to make this build look timeless. Local craftsmen have re-purposed pine flooring and beams from an 1800’s mill located in MA, to create the soffits, porch roofs, second floors, main house and kitchen ceilings. Attention to detail in its fullest extent was required to maintain the original patina of the wood, planed and cut to the sizes and thicknesses required. Log skins and barn wood were shipped from Idaho, where they were salvaged from the interiors of century old Midwestern barns. Amish made heart pine exterior doors for the main house will accompany custom iron windows and doors in the sunroom. Broken brick masonry fireplaces and original patina plank interior doors are additional elements lending to the “old world” feel of this home. The connection of the “new” addition barn wood wings seamlessly meet “the original” log home structure.

Upon arriving on the property, approaching the front door, and entering into the home, you truly are stepping back in time!

Amish made custom carriage garage doors

Glad to see a successful installation of another set of Amish made oak garage doors for our current NC farm/barn build. Uniquely enough these operational outswing doors also include a man door for a simple walk through access. These doors will operate using a modified standard roll-up garage operator.

Mountain retreat for a repeat customer

Update June 2018:

We are closing in on the completion of the guest cottage, so that our clients can start enjoying their spectacular “heaven” in Highlands, NC. Take a look @ our pics on the site that show the transformation from what was thought to be a tear down into a cute little bungalow nestled in woods just downhill from the crest of the viewing site! 

I am so honored to have been asked to be a part of a new build for clients that we had done a wonderful home for in the past. This new build is located 5 minutes from downtown Highlands NC and it’s probably the most amazing and breathtaking piece’s of property I have been a part of. The unobstructed views are of some beautiful valleys and in the distance, Lake Jocassee as well as Lake Keowee. We have started by renovating an existing cottage into a comfortable cozy spot for our clients to be able to take full advantage of their one of a kind mountain treasure during the process of our new home build for them. Come along with us and keep up with the journey on this piece of paradise over the next year or so ………….It’s going to be exciting!
