Do you love the BARN Style Log Cabin?
You will want to take a closer look at this Eco Log home with it's 26 foot by 40-foot footprint with its Gambrel style roof (also known as a barn style roof). In addition to the main barn style house, a garage was built as a similar looking Eco Log building. This modern barn is also a nice example for an energy efficient design. In this barn style house, there is plenty of room to live comfortably. On the main floor, there are two covered porches on either side of the house, an open living room and dining room with an open ceiling up above, a pantry, laundry room, bathroom and a master bedroom. Upstairs in this modern barn is a loft space.
It seems there are more and more barns turned into houses these days, as this design offers lots of space in a design that people can't seem to get enough of. When you build a home out of logs that are managed sustainably, you are getting a home that helps to preserve and protect the environment, and the resources used by the responsible building company.
