A Log Home Remodel Has Peaceful Views Of Powderhorn Bay, Idaho 

The homeowners were drawn to the log construction, yet wanted something more modern. They wanted the new design to be bright, open, and have better access to the outdoors.

The home was located on a steep hillside leaving the existing wrap-around deck as the only means of outdoor gathering space. It also created a cave-like feeling in the basement.

 Instead of updating the deck, it was removed in favor of locating an outdoor kitchen and pool adjacent to the side of the home.

With the deck removed, the basement became a luminous activity center, including a home bar, refrigerated wine wall, and assortment of game tables to provide a place for large groups and gatherings. 

In order to accommodate the owner’s children and grandchildren, rooms were  re-arranged and imagined into suites, with their own bathrooms and living rooms that could double as sleeping areas for grandchildren.

The roof of the garage was also removed during the renovation and reconstructed to host additional sleeping and social space for grandchildren that included eight bunk beds, a kitchen, and a full bathroom.

The majestic views, covered porches, and unique amenities combine to create a home that’s as much a retreat as it is a place of residence.

From the original log exterior to the updated and modernized interior, this remodel serves as a reminder of why log homes are so popular — they provide rustic charm and a wonderful connection to the outdoors.
