This Great Virtual Tour Shows What a Log Home Kit Looks Like When It's Assembled
Step inside a lovely log built home in this Oakridge Virtual Tour by eLogHomes.Com. This beautifully handcrafted Oakridge Log Home would be a wonderful place to call home, wouldn't it? The Oakridge log home model in this great virtual tour shows what the shell of a log home looks like when it is completed. As you will notice, there are no actual interior walls or finishings inside the log home. This is what the manufacturers of the log home packages call the Shell option. It can include everything up until the wiring and plumbing as the client is usually responsible for hiring help for that aspect of the build. This is a great log home package option for people who aren't in a hurry to get their log home built and have the time to finish the interior themselves.
The Oakridge log house is 2, 046 square feet in total and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The floor plan is bright and spacious, with an open concept design, the log home enters into the large living room and dining room area. As you can see in the video, there are two sets of double doors leading out onto the large wraparound deck that is one of the main features of the log home. There is an abundance of windows that attribute to the beautiful natural light that streams into the space throughout the day. The soaring vaulted ceilings are spectacular, and they even show a beautiful chandelier hanging from the centre of the room to show you what type of beautiful accents one could add on for their log home build. A large fireplace is also a key feature o the living room, making it the perfect place to hang out with family and friends, especially in the colder months. The kitchen area is right around the corner, with plenty of space for all the major appliances and tools. There is also a spacious laundry room by the kitchen and a bedroom tucked in there as well. The banister on the stairway leading up to the second floor is beautifully crafted with round logs and meant to look rustic and natural. Upstairs you get a beautiful view of the lower level that really gives you an appreciation for the size of this lovely log home.
The exterior tour also shows how beautifully crafted the log homes from eLog Homes really are. The logs are D -shaped giving the exterior that rounded log look, while the interior has the flat wall profile. The bay windows were added in expertly, and the dormers on the top floor look great from outside. As you can see the logs are stacked and linked perfectly at their corners. This is called a dovetail corner, eLog Homes also offers different options for how the log homes are built, but you can see this example clearly in the video tour.
