Designing and building a custom log home is an exhilarating prospect — one many people dream about for years. The owners of this 5,300-square-foot home found their thrill on 40 acres of blueberry farmland near the Washington-Oregon border, and a new part-time farming career for this talented owner/builder was born.
Before the couple could harvest a single fruit, they needed a homestead where they could put down roots. That’s where StoneMill Log & Timber Homes enters the picture in a very unique way.
The company specializes in rectangular logs, hewn flat with dovetailed corners — an Appalachian-style log profile that’s common in the East but rarely seen out West. The owners eagerly embraced the distinctive style.
