My Idea Notebook goes everywhere that I go! It usually stays in the car, but I always have it handy should I need a measurement, a color, or a description for someone who’s helping us make this home a reality — such as a bank lender, blueprint designer, or cabinet installer. Or, if my friends & relatives have a question or make a suggestion on the fly, then I just grab the Idea Notebook and add it to my collection of great ideas.

Three things make this log home unique… 1. The big, open floorplan… and the big open windows. 2. The bi-level flooring in the bathrooms, that ‘hides’ the plumbing. 3. The wide open kitchen and curved island with the stove in the center. Have a look…
