Spicing Up Your Walls

If you love the look of wood in your log home but want to add a little variety, there are many options from metal to cork to shiplap to bark, according to Molly Cooper. Cooper & Co. Interior Designs


This summer has been a hot one, and it’s still sweltering in a large part of the United States, not to mention the world. We’re sharing some cooling options for log homes, which are by their nature very energy efficient.

In it for Others

A plateau cabin is reward for life of service.

Santa Fe Rabbit

Rabbits have become the new white meat. Rabbit farming has grown from raising a few rabbits for family consumption to large commercial operations with hundreds of rabbits. Of course, rabbit season opens in early fall, and many people hunt for their own. Here’s a recipe for preparing a domestic or wild rabbit dish.

The Eagledale Cabin Plan

The Eagledale is one of Honest Abe’s most popular plans. It has often been modified, enlarged, built in various wood profiles and even combined with other plans to create a truly custom home.

The first floor’s master bedroom includes a luxury bath and two walk-in closets. The open layout of living room, dining room and kitchen makes the home seem larger, no matter the square footage.

A utility room is adjacent to the kitchen, while the living room offers a convenient powder room. The second floor is an open loft overlooking the downstairs living area. A front porch and side deck provide outdoor living spaces.
