Log construction has been around for centuries. While we most often associate log construction with mountain lodges, there are actually many types of structures that have been built with logs. From luxury vacation homes to tiny forest getaways, these log-style buildings run the gamut from cozy to grand. Here are three standouts:
- The Glass Cabin, West Virginia. A couple in West Virginia built their own mountain getaway. What makes this cabin special is that one side of the structure is completely covered with windows, for an open, expansive view. The windows were collected by the two from antique shops and garage sales.
- Lion Sands Game Reserve Treehouses, South Africa. “Treehouses” serve as rustic accommodations in the Lion Sands Game Reserve in South Africa. These open air getaways allow you and your guests to stay overnight beneath the starts, with the opportunity to get a glimpse of the animals that live on the reserve. The treehouses were made from a combination of logs, wood beams and wood decking.
- Eagle Brae Highland Log Cabins, Scotland. These rustic vacation getaways represent a more traditional take on log homes. Constructed of full logs, the cabins also feature grass roofs, wooden furniture, large decks and wooden staircases.
These are just 3 examples. A quick internet search reveals a wide array of log-style structures across the globe, in a dazzling diversity of designs.
