Nestled in the forest of Mount Hood, Oregon, this milled log abode is the perfect spot for a tranquil ski getaway. The 3,603-square-foot retreat is a luxurious take on the traditional mountain log home. Its orientation makes it even more unique; the home is positioned to take advantage of the drop-dead gorgeous views that are located in front of this three-level home—rather than behind it.
The layout boasts an elevator and numerous sleeping quarters, including every child’s favorite log home feature: a bunkroom. The interiors are designed to flow easily from space to space and seamlessly perpetuate the home’s indoor-outdoor connection.
And the surrounding landscape isn’t the only thing that’s green—this luxury cabin is also the first authentic log home to be certified Platinum by the LEED® program, the highest level of standards in energy-efficient and environmentally minded design.
The certification was accomplished by: creating an overall western orientation to take advantage of the vantage points; including large overhangs; minimizing glazing at south-facing areas; and leveraging the natural, high insulating power and thermal mass properties of the solid logs.
