Home by Satterwhite Log Homes

From all appearances, this country cabin looks to be the home of a Texan. On the entrance drive, a sign on the windmill says, “Luna-Tick Lodge.” There’s no missing the massive Texas Star and sun-bleached cow skull that greet visitors to the house. Even the interior strongly suggests a Texas tie-in, with cowboys and Indians, six-shooters, bows and arrows, saddles and cowhides. A red neon Pegasus, landmark of the Dallas skyline for almost a century, flies over the fireplace.
So why is this house in Virginia?
Really, it could happen anywhere people love a good Western movie—and want a fun getaway the grandkids will love to visit. (Having a horse or two, along with four-wheelers in the barn helps, too.)
The Texas motif caught on with the couple that built this home as they traveled to the Lone Star state to visit Satterwhite Log Homes. The home’s floor plan is a modified version of Satterwhite’s Caddo with Loft, one of more than three dozen standard plans in the Satterwhite catalog. (The company has several thousand more plans on file).
