Floor Plans: Rustic Appeal, Modern Amenities a Beautiful Blend in Jefferson City, Mo.
Modern amenities blend with the appeal of historic and rustic architecture in The Hillview, an award-winning, custom- designed 3,167-square-foot log home in Jefferson City, Mo., that the owners plan to enjoy as they grow older.
An example of modern log home construction, the home owner designed the property to take full advantage of magnificent views of the surrounding countryside from several vantage points.
She also added aging-in-place features, including wider hallways, three-foot-wide doorways, a main-level owner’s suite and other smart elements.
The lead designer of log home manufacturer Expedition Log Homes based Oostburg, Wis., provided structural guidance and practical modifications.
The home earned Expedition a 2011 Excellence in Home Design: Log award in the NAHB Building Systems Councils Excellence in Design & Marketing competition.
