Rocky-K Log Homes & Construction, LLC, an independent dealer for Honest Abe Log Homes in Central Ky., has had the pleasure of working with John and Anita in Pine Knob, Ky., to make “What They’ve Always Wanted” come to reality.

Having a large natural habitat for wildlife, their dream was to build a log home that blended with the surrounding acreage. With this in mind, the existing home on the property needed to be removed. The owners decided to construct the 3-car garage first, including living quarters above so they could be close to the site during construction of the main home. The Insulated Concrete garage was built and has a round log-siding exterior which would match the main log home to come.

The brick home was then removed to make room for the custom-designed log home utilizing the 8”x8” Interlocking Round log profile from Honest Abe.  The floor plan is a modified Navajo, and includes a large sun room off of the Master Suite and an enclosed breezeway/mudroom to the garage. The home will have a spacious, open layout featuring the Heavy-Timber roofing system highlighting exposed Douglas-Fir beams and rafters. It’s been exciting to watch their dream unfold, and we are honored to have a part in making this happen.
