A Cottage in the Pines

Whitefish Lake, Minnesota

Set among towering pines and overlooking the lake, this cabin underwent an extensive remodel and addition. Wanting to add a little additional space, a new suite was added on to one end of the full log cabin. To create the authentic feel that is seen through out the home, the new walls were done in half log with chinking over conventional framing to achieve, not only a more cost effective method, but also better energy efficiency.  The kitchen features a large, open concept perfect for family entertaining. The room is set between two stone fireplaces, one of which was original to the log structure. The owner’s suite features chinked log walls, log trusses and a stunning vaulted bath with claw foot tub.
