He wanted a log home, and she wanted something more finished - so we worked with them to find a solution that satisfied them both. By combining traditional timber framing, with log trusses in the central great room with structural insulated panels and wood detailing throughout, the interior of the home has a relaxed elegance that lets the sun stream in. The log timbers are Port Orford cedar, felled after a natural occurring organism destroyed the trees' roots. The exterior, finished with stone and stucco, ties the home to its site in the hills west of Yakima.
