, with most log homes you know what you’re going to get before you walk through the front door. But sometimes, there’s a surprise in store. Luxe Log Homes, a new series of modular open-concept retreats from Blue Ridge Log Cabins,
offers a contemporary option that breaks the “antler chandelier” mold.
In response to market research and inspired by a distinctly West Coast vibe, with clean lines and a generous entertaining space, chief designer Sarah Davis has dreamt up a dwelling that offers many log home lovers what they have been seeking for a while: something different. The typical pitched roof has been flattened, floor-to-ceiling windows abound and the minimalist design complements the natural world outside instead of trying to imitate it. The cabins are equipped with high-tech amenities, such as independently controlled thermostats in each room (the HVAC is integrated into the ceiling) and Bluetooth-connected light bulbs that double as speakers. Because of Blue Ridge’s customizable modular approach to log home construction, Sarah describes the Luxe line as “Legos for adults.” Luxe Log Homes can be constructed as easily in Bermuda as they would be in Boston.
Produced in the same factory-controlled environment as their traditional log homes and mountain architecture series, Blue Ridge Log Cabins displays the breadth of their brand with this modern reimagining of the rustic
hideout we’ve always enjoyed. Visit Luxe Log Home’s website for more information: luxelog homes.com
