The natural beauty of Eastern White Pine lumber is put on spectacular display in beautiful cabins by Grandfather Mountain Log Homes in North Carolina. In addition to authentic log cabins made of reclaimed wood, the company builds traditional-style log cabins in a variety of designs ranging from rustic, single-story structures in the style of Appalachian pioneer cabins to larger, more contemporary homes.
Each of the lofted cabins features exposed beams that create both the first floor ceiling and the second story floor. Exposed beams are also used to create cathedral ceilings that open up the space and make it feel airy and cozy at the same time. Each log cabin includes a “heavy timber” porch system including exposed rafter beams.
“Grandfather Mountain Log Home Packages contain solid Eastern White Pine logs that are inspected to the highest standards in in the industry today,” the company states. The photo gallery of cabin interiors demonstrates how the warmth and charm of this material can transform a space, whether in a country kitchen or a grand living room with a vaulted ceiling and stone fireplace.
Eastern White Pine is a popular choice for timber frame buildings, which are experiencing a boom in popularity, because of its affordability, reliability and aesthetic value.
