Many of today’s homeowners want the log home of their dreams, but without the traditional and rustic cabin-in-the-woods feel. With today’s advanced materials and home designs, logs are used to construct grand, elegant mansions worthy of a king. And even more advantageous, modern homeowners have the option of constructing their desired log home with imitation materials, which are more affordable, maintenance-free and oftentimes more durable than real wood logs.
A Luxurious Colorado Ranch
As reported by Denver Business Journal,* local Denver businessman Charlie Gallagher is selling his log home property in Kremmling, with a price tag of $40 million. The 7,000 acre ranch includes a 14,566 square foot lodge and private ski runs, according to Denver Business Journal. The Journal features a slideshow in which subscribers can get a rare glimpse inside.
A Colorado Tradition
Perhaps a unifying theme in Colorado is a love of the outdoors and the mountain lifestyle. The log home might be the quintessential dwelling of Coloradoans. An interesting aspect of the log housing market in the state is the wide variety of home types. Certainly there are people like Charlie Gallagher who own some of the state’s largest, grandest log homes. But there are also families with log-style getaways or permanent homes in the mountains. There are also tiny log cabins for hunting, and historical treasures like the 10th Mountain Division Huts, which are a collection of backcountry huts managed by a not-for-profit organization. The wide variety of log structures in Colorado reflects the varied styles and tastes of their inhabitants.
A Colorado Home to Suit Your Tastes, Property and Budget
One of the advantages of TruLog™ steel log siding is that you can create the look of a log home, in any style and of any magnitude that you want, but without the hassle of real wood logs. Whether you want to create a large-scale ranch or re-side your family townhome or any other type of structure, TruLog™ steel log siding has the aesthetic appearance of natural logs, but you won’t have to worry about log upkeep, which often includes:
- Replacement of old, damaged logs
- Correction of water damage
- Correction of insect infestation
TruLog™ siding is made of durable, American-manufactured steel. But TruLog™ retains the cosmetic look of real logs. The hewing lines mimic the look of logs that have been chopped by hand, and the imitation chinking adds the realistic look of a traditional technical feature. You deserve to have the authentic Colorado log home you want, but without sacrificing your time and money to routine log upkeep. We provide a free estimate for the cost of your project and send an installation DVD with your order.
