This beautiful contemporary log home built in Northern Idaho is called the Silver Valley Hybrid Log Home because the builders combined square milled log walls with timber trusses. The builders at Precision Craft Log and Timber Homes have done an incredible job of creating a home that's not only expertly built, but that also feels so warm and inviting. They also added in custom windows framed with timber to let ample light into the space and to capture the surrounding views beautifully. They also integrated multiple outdoor spaces such as the firepit which would be perfect for gathering with family and friends, a wrap-around porch for BBQing and a detached outdoor living room to lounge outside with all the benefits of indoor furniture. This log home is 3,120 square feet in total with at least 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Its design is based on the Wood River floor plan from Precision Craft Log and Timber Homes' selection of premade designs. These designs can be chosen by clients and then modified to suit their needs and preferences. So no two houses are the exact same even if they come from the same plan.
It's easy to see how this gorgeous log home received the award for 2018 Timber Home of Distinction from NAHB Building Systems Councils, plus it was also featured in Log Cabin Homes in the November/December edition in 2018. The exterior of the home is something to be admired indeed with a gorgeous feature in the centre of the home that includes plenty of windows and glass double doors leading into the home. This is the view from the back of the home which leads out to the great fire pit in the backyard. This entrance also leads into the living room which features soaring cathedral ceilings and incredible beams throughout. The seating area looks cozy and intimate seated around the fireplace and TV, making it the best place to relax with family and friends. Then just off of the living room is the dining room which is open and spacious as well. The kitchen is also nearby with an island that can be used as a place to eat as well. There's also a cooktop built into the island so cooking can be done there as well. The kitchen also features two ovens and a large fridge as well as all of the beautiful handcrafted cabinetry done in wood with glass inserts at the top for display items. There's also space above the cabinets for more display space for decorations.
On the other side of the living room is the master bedroom which features another set of double doors leading out into the backyard and plenty of other windows as well. There's also the ensuite bathroom nearby which has a spa shower with a bench in it as well as a whole vanity set up for doing makeup and getting ready. The detached outdoor space is a dining area, kitchen and a living room with high ceilings and the same timber features as the main house. This would just provide that extra space that the owners need to entertain, or to even use as a guest house perhaps.
