Meet the Builder

In June, we featured profiles on four of our Independent Representatives (IRs) with whom we have worked the longest. One of those IRs is CM Allaire & Sons, and we encourage you to read the post on them if you’ve yet to do so. In two weeks, CM Allaire & Sons is having a Sunday open house at their model home. Here’s a look at the model home, and the Mendon floor plan on which it is based.

The Mendon model is a mid-sized plan at about 2150 square feet, with a very open floor plan in the public spaces. The door opens into a small entryway with closet. As you enter the model home, the large fieldstone fireplace commands center attention in the great room. The rocks composing the fireplace were primarily harvested from the build site.

The great room and fireplace.

Since this is a model home, many of the possible material choices are featured. The exterior logs are V-grove (“D” profile) to show how both flat and round profile logs can look on the home. Square posts are used within the home, while full log rafters are used above.

The bright red cabinets are a wonderful touch of color.

The kitchen has red painted cabinets, which depart from the normal natural wood tones found in log home kitchens but provide a welcome splash of color. Next to the kitchen is a sun room, with copious light entering through windows and skylights. The first floor also houses the spacious master bedroom, with walk-in closet. The model home does not have a dedicated master bathroom, but the design is easily modified to accommodate one.

Arriving at the upstairs landing via the half-log stairs brings us to a loft space that is used here as an office, but can be put to a variety of uses. With its wonderful continuity to the great room below, it feels like an extension of that space. Also upstairs are two additional bedrooms and another full bathroom.





We hope this preview of the Mendon model home has inspired you to pay it a visit. The model home is open on most weekdays, and the open home is Sunday, November 6th from 9am to 2pm. If you’ll be in Southern New England, check out the details here. If you can’t make it, hopefully you enjoy the video above of Dave Allaire giving a tour of the home. As always, if you have any questions about this or any other Real Log Home, please contact us.
