About The Log Home
Built in the summer of 2008, this authentic log home was crafted from huge 9" square logs of local white pines. Three bedrooms, two three-piece bathrooms, great room and main floor laundry cover about 1400 square feet, with a full, dry basement ready to suit your needs.
Along with the excellent insulation properties of solid log
construction, the home was designed with a passive solar orientation,
which conserves energy by keeping the house cooler in summer and warmer
in winter. Nestled amongst the majestic white pines on it's west side, few
windows on the east, and sheltered below extra deep overhangs on the
south side, the hot summer sun doesn't have much chance to heat up the
interior. In the winter the sun rises lower in the sky and floods the
home with warm sunbeams for you and your pets to enjoy.
Deep 2 feet wide overhangs on gable ends provide protection to your beautiful investment.
A Really Cool Roof
The home and outbuildings are protected by a lifetime warranty on the white steel roofs. White is the colour recommended by environmentalists as the "coolest" roof. White does not absorb heat
like darker colours, thereby keeping the home cooler in summer. The
premium R44 insulation in the attics, and soundproofing in the interior
walls further reduces energy consumption and increases your comfort .
No water bills to pay. Excellent 50 foot drilled well with pure, delicious water.
Jump InEnjoy the hottest summer days on the expanse of deck by the pool. 2010 Atlantic 30' round above ground pool with underwater lighting and wedding cake steps is a hit with little and big swimmers alike.
