Our Plan of the Month: Blue Ridge

This 1745 sq.ft. footprint Western red cedar log post and beam project is being built by Mountain ridge log homes for location in Georgia USA.

We have been designing many mono-slab roof type architecture lately, an indication that the more modern look is becoming popular especially using post and beam construction style.
With a large 483 sq.ft. guest suite at second floor plus a full walkout basement, this home totals almost 4000 sq.ft.
Deflector roofs were added between two mono-slab roofs sloping into each other over the great room.
This works fine for low snow locations but may not be desirable in high snow fall areas.
This is a creative design that clearly displays how we can marry contemporary design with log construction.
