It's Eye-Catching, Spacious, Fast to Build and Cheap (Click for Floor Plan)
Here we go! Back to the log home design drawing board. If youíre having trouble picking out the best possible floor plan for your own log home dream, then you might just want to give this Handsome Log House Plan a try. Itís got something for everyone! The Handsome Log House is everything its name implies and more. Itís handsome, itís spacious, and itís affordable. Letís have a look at the exterior, first. What a gorgeous wrap-around deck it has, some of it partially covered so we can sit out here in the shade on those hot sunny days or keep dry on the rainy ones. Right from the get-go, we can see a potential for outside activities with the kids, including barbecues and family dinners in the summer months. Wouldnít a sweet patio table, complete with a sunbrella, look great out here? And how about a swing for the front porch?
Now, letís talk about the Handsome Log Houseís interior! At 2,576 square feet, weíre talking about a good amount of space. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which is a great balance. This would be the ideal first home for a just-married couple, or a couple with one or two young children. Young kids could share the extra bedroom easily if you got them a bunk bed! How about one made from the same timber as the house? That would be sweet. One of the greatest features of the Handsome Log Home is the two-story windows Ė thatís a lot of glass, a lot of light, and a lot of view. We donít know about you, but windows are big on our log cabin list. Beautiful log homes need a lot of light to truly bring out all of the colour and grain of the wood. When this happens naturally, it seems as if they are lit from the inside out rather than the other way around.
The Handsome log homeís lower level has a lot going for it. First of all, youíve got 1,852 square feet to work with down here. The living room is at the centre of this floor, and it has space to spare. It comes with a gas fireplace as well so you will always be warm and cozy. Youíve also got a spacious kitchen to work in which is always a bonus because who wants to be bumping into everything when theyíre trying to make a delicious, relaxing meal? When you have lots of room in the kitchen, you can also call for more dishwashers to help out after the meal is done and itís your turn to take it easy. Thereís a large dining area close to the kitchen as well, a beautiful spot to enjoy a family meal. Also downstairs, you will find the Master Bedroom as well as a full Master Bathroom! Now letís take a look upstairs to see what we can find up there.
The upstairs loft of the Handsome Log House is 724 square feet, very traditional in style, and itís full of natural sunlight too. Up here, you have the second cozy bedroom that comes with its own ensuite bathroom Ė so no one has to wander downstairs in the middle of the night. Thereís also a beautiful open area that looks down upon the living room below. Youíll never lose anyone in this log home Ė with this lovely open concept, youíll always know where everyone is and what they are doing. Thatís another wonderful bonus of log cabin living Ė you really connect with the people around you as well as mother nature just outside the door. So there you have it, this is the Handsome Log House Plan in all of its glory. We found this excellent floor plan over at the Architectural Designs website. If you like this one, you will find plenty more over there to marvel over as well.
