The Merchants is indeed a very impressive log house. Perched on a hill in the forest, it's the epitome of a luxury log home in the woods. Even the staircase winding up the hillside is a work of art and adds to the overall beauty of the home. Like many of their homes, the lower part of the house is crafted out of stone. This not only looks great paired with the logs to give an overall natural look, it also creates some great stability for the home too. One of the most impressive things about this log house is the front profile that you see while looking up the hill at it. The peaked roof with all of the windows makes an impact and the deck that extends the length of the home does as well. There are also balconies off of some of the bedrooms as well. A double car garage is attached to the home and is also constructed out of stone as well. The wood that the home is constructed out of with the green metal roof blends in so well with the home's natural surroundings too. They don't show the home's interior, but we can only imagine it would be just as stunning as the exterior. The home is even on a lake which makes it even more desirable.

You can also create a completely custom design with their talented design team, this way you get exactly what you want. In building the log houses, Pine is the most commonly used type of wood, but they also have Cedar and Cypress wood available upon request. Usually, it takes between about 6 to 10 months for the company to complete one of their log houses, but it all depends on the size and the individual project. A more complicated build on a hill like this one could end up taking a bit longer.
