Annual Floorplan Design Winners Announced

Log Home Living magazine's April 2008 issue unveils the best log home designs of the year, with more than a few surprises, in it's 10th Annual Log Home Living Floorplan Design contest. The contest has greatly influenced trends in rustic design over the past decade, with readers and the design community embracing the ideas conveyed by the winning entries.

PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes PhotoPrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes and Custom Log Homes were judged the top designs in their categories (less than 2,500 square feet and more than 2,500 square feet, respectively).

"We're truly experiencing a golden age of rustic-home design," said Michael McCarthy, editor-in-chief of Log Home Living. "While conventional housing design has not been terribly innovative over the past several years, it's been just the opposite with rustic-home architecture. We're seeing natural elements, such as stone and timber, incorporated into earth-friendly designs that pack a powerful aesthetic punch. Open designs, outstanding outdoor-indoor living spaces, bedrooms that open to deck space, and functional, stylish kitchens are hallmarks of the winning designs."
