Log Home Additions: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
Lets get real for a second: you arent seriously considering adding a gunmetal accented hot tub to the side of your log home, right? Any log home additions that you make are going to need to meet the minimum criteria for eligibility: they match the home, they dont deter from the homes look and feel, and they dont require extensive modifications to the log home.
* Wooden-framed hot tubs, steam rooms, and pools. An excellent way to add elegance to your home, as well as providing an area of relaxation and tranquility. Who wouldnt want to splash around in a nice pool after a hard days work?
* A sun room. Sun rooms greatly increase the appeal of a certain area of the house, and they look great. Color matched to the exterior of the home, a sun room will blend in seamlessly while adding so much to the home, both as value and as functionality.
* Half-finished work shops. Come on, you could at least take the time to finish the exterior walls so that they matched the rest of your home. It may only be used for work, but that doesnt mean it needs to be an eyesore.
* Any log home additions which require anything to do with spandex. It wasnt cool in the 80s, and it definitely isnt cool now. Regardless of what anyone tells you, Spandex is not making a spectacular comeback as a material for the home. Keep it out of the curtains.
* Portable Bathrooms. Your home has many, there is no need to for a port-a-potti.
* Vinyl siding over the wood. No one knows why anyone would ever do this, but it has been done. Dont do it, ever. Dont even do it if someone pays you- its just not good karma.

I was under the impression that all log homes were alike, but hearing from people, there’s nothing like an American log home.
Canadian Log Homes are Second Place?
You’d think that Canada would be the leader in the log building industry.
