THE DETAILS

The owners wanted every log, including the exterior ones, having a round corner, requiring an extraordinary amount of sanding

Entryway log wall with carved arch leading into the living area

Western Red cedar logs, carefully selected, each for it's own purpose, have been hand hewn, sanded, polished, notched and fitted to convey a sense of space and drama.
Two oversized logs were dressed to make the posts which accomodate the interface of the leaning with the perpendicular walls and windows

The living room bay leans out 10 degrees creating drama, architectural focus and artistic expression.

Curved plaster bulkhead houses overhead lighting above the bed
Western Red cedar logs, selected
in various thicknesses, each for its
own purpose, have been sanded,
polished, notched and fitted. Between
each support is hand plastered
wall space. Where planes
meet, the plaster is curved. It is the
first protoype of a split level curvilinear
structure, a piece of art in all
respects and well deserving of its
Georgie award.
