Their Log Houses Are Known As "The Affordable Shade of Green" – and for a Very Good Reason
The current obsession with log cabin living continues, and with it comes an insatiable thirst for anything that involves log homes – photo albums, videos, blog posts, and if you still can’t get enough, then how about this Virginian Virtual Tour by eLogHomes.Com?The Virginian log cabin is more than just a cabin, it is truly a log HOME! With its ample 3,055 square footage, it also includes four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. This is luxury log cabin living at its best, and it’s the affordable kind of luxury rather than the extravagant kind.
This log home can provide you with the perfect combination of rustic and modern, simplicity and beauty, all with enough space to raise your family in style. And the really great thing about eLogHomes is they build their cabins with the environment in mind. You won’t have to worry about living with a large carbon footprint if you go with these builders. They call themselves “the affordable shade of green”, and they really mean it. At eLogHomes, they choose all of their building materials with the least impact on the environment. Truly, this is log home living at its best because such a huge part of this movement is about living in balance and harmony with the natural world around us.
Looking at the Virginian log home from the outside, the first feature we notice is one lovely stone chimney, then another – two in total! Don’t they just take you back in time? We hardly ever see chimneys like these anymore, but if this log cabin movement keeps growing – we soon will! The next feature we take note of is the beautiful front porch! Already, we can start imagining ourselves living here, spending a lot of our spare time sitting outside and enjoying the scenery, preferably with a dog curled up at our feet. And then! We walk in the front door. And what’s the first thing that pops out at us? A hand-carved owl at the bottom of the stair railing! What better way to enter a house, we ask? Then we notice there are hand-carved features all over the place, including caterpillars, a fox, and a bear – all tastefully, beautifully, and naturally integrated into this home – and then you know, it’s truly a one-of-a-kind. Imagine how much the kids are going to love it.
Once you get over the wood carvings, the next thing you notice is all of the space! The living room opens up to greet you as soon as you walk in the door, with its welcoming fireplace at the far end, ready to warm your weary bones after a long day at work. There’s a sweet and spacious dining room area on the other side of the stairway, which is very accessible to both the kitchen and the cozy Family Room. The Family Room itself is warm and snug and gives you access to the rear porch via the beautiful glassed-in doors (oh yes, we forgot to mention the Virginian log home has not one but two porches – Bonus!) and all around are very large windows letting in loads of light.
The lower level of this log cabin home also includes an enormous Master Bedroom that comes complete with its own fireplace. How romantic can you get? There’s also a walk-in closet and an ensuite full Master Bathroom. Upstairs, we’ll find three more bedrooms and two more bathrooms, so there’s plenty to go around if you have kids. One of these bedrooms, we might add, could even be bigger than the Master Bedroom, if that’s possible. And it has its own fireplace as well! And this isn’t all; you will have to watch the entire virtual tour to get all of the precious details about this beautiful log cabin home they call The Virginian.
