The robust, timeless nature of a clawfoot tub fits perfectly with the log home’s durable resilience.

While Kentucky is well known for having the best bourbon in the world, it's also known for having some of the most beautiful country style log homes in the country. If you've never heard of Shelbyville, it happens to be smack dab between Louisville and Lexington, in the heart of northern Kentucky. It's also home for this weeks' Real Log Style feature.
When I say Texas ranch - you probably think of cattle roaming on open plains, amber grain blowing in the summer breeze and of course, cowboys . This week's featured Real Log Home is a beautiful country retreat nestled in the heart of Texas. It's a true southern ranch, named Circle 9, that boasts classic country style with quintessential log home charm.
There are rooms in the house that don’t often get the glamor or the attention they deserve. They may be small, and in general we don’t spend a lot of time in them, but these are some very important rooms. I am of course talking about bathrooms.
Bathrooms are where you go to get clean, get ready for work, and get ready for bed. And while it’s generally regarded as a room for business only (no pun intended) there’s no reason why a bathroom shouldn’t feel just as cozy, welcoming and beautiful as the rest of your log home.
