milled log homes
There is nothing, perhaps, more indicative of mountain style than a log home. Today's milled log homes combine the rich heritage of our forefathers with modern lifestyles where interiors are filled with light from large panes of glass and rooms are open and flow seamlessly together to accommodate interaction with friends and family.
