Each gorgeous log home shown in Authentic Log Homes was built with reclaimed timbers that were hand-hewn at least a century ago.
The homes vary from small to large, from week-end retreats to expansive residences. The house plans cover layouts from "erected as found" to modern floorplans with vaulted ceilings and open kitchens. One thing they all have in common, though, is that they look the way a log home is supposed to look. Dove-tailed corners, weathered barn wood, antique heart pine and ancient beams, logs and posts were used abundantly in all of these houses, making these 'new' homes look like they have always been here.
If you are hoping to build such a home for yourself, or expand your existing home with a log addition, Authentic Log Homes will provide help and inspiration. Each of the twenty-seven projects featured includes color photographs of both interiors and exteriors, and the floor plan for each home. All of these Walden Log Homes are perfect for today's lifestyles, all the while maintaining and preserving the integrity of the irreplacable timbers that sheltered our forebearers.
