[Log Home Tour] A NY Arts & Crafts Log Home

In New York's Catskill Mountains, one couple builds an Arts and Crafts log home.

When Lois and Arnold Melman decided to build a weekend home, they sought a secluded site convenient to their primary residence in New York’s Westchester County. They found 47 acres in the Catskill Mountains, bordering a lake and a 35,000-acre Boy Scout camp. The wooded setting prompted Lois to recall her city-dwelling father’s desire to retire to a log cabin in the mountains. He passed away before he could fulfill his dream, but Lois and Arnold committed to building a log cabin in his memory.
