This luxury log home was created with rare handcrafted whole log construction and built with Doug Fir and White Fir (Christmas trees). The logs range from 16 to 18 inches in diameter and are scribed so the logs lock into each other. No log is exactly the same in diameter or in any other way. Notice the chinking between the logs that improves the home’s energy efficiency by reducing heat loss where the logs meet. The Roof pitch is a rare 12- 12 steep which creates the grand lodge effect. All of the flooring was milled from the property’s own Cedar trees.
There is also a brand new automatic propane generator for back up power. The garage electrical panel was upgraded to handle welding and RV storage. There is an additional unique outdoor wood burning furnace/boiler which provides a very efficient way to heat the home and the water heater. The beauty of this is you can utilize the abundant supply of wood on the property or use the traditional propane method for the furnace and the water heater. There is a large wood fireplace as well as a wood burning stove inside the house for added ambience and warmth.
Not only is this home unparalleled in both uniqueness and quality of construction, but it is ideally located less than an hour away from the world-renowned Lake Tahoe. The home sits back off the road a quarter mile and is perfectly situated for privacy and views.
