When it comes to designing the perfect log home floor plan, there are many needs and desires to consider. People often feel torn between wanting a log home that will be great for entertaining (an especially relevant matter during this time of year) and the practical fact that it’s not every day you need to host 16 people for a turkey supper. So, are there log home floor plans that strike the right balance? Of course!
Look no further than the Hartland log home floor plan (first floor shown above). This log home is just a tad over 2,000 square feet and has three bedrooms and 2 and a half bathrooms. The first-floor master bedroom is ideal for couples wanting to live in their home for all the years to come. It’s also nice and private as a small hallway separates it from the public spaces of the home. Just imagine hosting the big get together and moving through the open floor plan as the evening progresses, from the open kitchen to the dining room, and to the soaring great room after supper for games and after dinner drinks. (The cathedral ceiling is particularly ideal for those with a taste for extra-large Christmas trees). But once you’ve tired of the festivities, you’ll be able to retreat to the master bedroom and leave any younger folks who still have the energy to stay up. With the distance between great room and master suite, you won’t hear a peep.
The 2 bedrooms upstairs can be used for children or for guests. The loft space upstairs is also ideal for guests or children to feel they have their own living space separate from the great room. It would be ideal as a small library/office or as a play space for young children (keeping their toys and clutter up off the first floor). A full bath services both upstairs bedrooms.
