This Country Log House Is The Dream Of Every Wood Lover

    You’ll be sure to love this solid wood cabin in a country house style that is the dream of every cabin lover that has come true. The log cabin building was built from thick, single-leaf pine block walls and has oak flooring, except in the bathrooms and the hallway which has tiles. In addition to the attractive appearance of the log cabin building, its pleasant indoor climate and the unique living atmosphere that only exists in chemically untreated log cabins are inspiring. To emphasize the naturalness of the sustainably built cabin building, the very light wooden walls are allowed to slowly gray on the outside, so the logs will acquire a silvery-gray patina over the years. The brick-red gable roof and the natural light wooden windows will then form a nice contrast to the facade, with which they harmonize nicely today.

    The detached log house offers the family of four a generous 1,625 square feet of living space, which is spread over 980 square feet on the ground floor and 645 square feet in the attic. In the large, open living/dining/kitchen area on the ground floor, which takes up about half of the space there, the kitchen, dining room, and living room flow into one another. The cabin has large floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of daylight. In a few steps, you are on the large, partially covered wooden terrace, which is an extension of the living area on warm days and evenings. The living area is deliberately separated from the hallway, where there is also a cloakroom and staircase. A study and guest room, a guest shower/toilet, and a pantry complete the ground floor.

    The top floor of the cabin serves as a place of retreat. Here you will find two children’s rooms, a bedroom, and a large family bathroom with an attached dressing room complete the space program, and all the rooms can be reached from a hallway. The children’s rooms each have access to the balcony, which is located on the single-story, almost entirely glazed porch (on the south-western eaves side), and benefit from a large dormer with a small saddle roof. This tiny house contributes significantly to the beautiful exterior view of the individual log house and spoils the living area with natural light from noon to evening. Just like the shutters, they were made of the same wood as the walls, which not only serve to protect but also give the building a friendly face.

    The log house is heated by underfloor heating, which is supplied by both the water-bearing fireplace (with water pockets) in the living area and the solar water heating on the house roof. The stove in the log cabin building is operated with logs and emits particularly cozy radiant heat into the living area. In an emergency, the rustic log cabin building also has a gas condensing boiler, which is rarely used. There is a large rainwater cistern that helps to save precious water and supplies the garden with it.
