The 4th of July is America's holiday. It marks that summer is in full swing and we look forward to celebrating the holiday by barbequing, swimming, playing badminton and other lawn games and of course, fireworks. In order to celebrate this great country in which we live, we must find an amazing location to host our annual party! The perfect venue to celebrate America is most certainly a Real Log Home. This week's featured home is a fantastic lakeside log home located in Shell Knob, Missouri.
A Yard Fit For Entertaining
The weather is calling for sunny skies in the mid 80s and you've got a log home situated on one of the best lakes in Missouri. This is undoubtedly a recipe for any successful gathering - but for a 4th of July celebration, you want to make sure your yard is extra ready. The large and multi-level property is perfect for entertaining the crowds. A closer view of the exterior of this lake side log home in Missouri demonstrates a home fit for fireworks! With the American flag raised at full staff on the second floor deck, we can't help but notice the stunning details of the design of this home. Gable end webbing is a beautiful way of displaying intricate detail on your log home.
Whether inside watching the cook work or outside taking in the views, a log home strives to be one thing above all else - comfortable. Patio furniture can be the best addition to any deck. The second floor log home deck shown above is made even more relaxing by comfortable outdoor seating. I love the full log post railings!
Moving from outdoor relaxation to indoor, we find ourselves in the spacious custom log home kitchen. While Aunt Ginny prepares her famous potato salad and your dad puts the finishing touches on the secret recipe barbecue sauce, take in the beauty of what surrounds you. It's fairly uncommon to have a full log gable-end cathedral kitchen - and this home showcases this uniqueness perfectly. Adjacent to the kitchen, we're able to see the soaring cathedral ceiling on display as well as two structural support beams. These beams provide support to the roof while adding full log aesthetics to the interior of the log home great room. Lastly, a cozy log home sitting area complete with summer's favorite furniture - the wicker chair. What the sitting area lacks in square footage it makes up for with its unique vaulted ceiling and full log rafters. Log homes are all about the little details!
