Log Home Combines Hot Design With Rustic Feel
At the intersection of Abe Lincoln meets Gucci, a 5,500-square-foot home scheduled to be completed next month on a two-acre lot on Lake Petenwell, Wisc. will help educate consumers about the design and construction process of a log home and provide support for the University of Wisconsin Children’s Hospital in Madison.
Built by Golden Eagle Log Homes as a rustic retreat with the latest in technology and interior design, the showcase home will be furnished with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and custom-design cabinets in the kitchen; a wine cellar and a wine tasting room; and a theater with three rows of lighted and elevated custom seating, surround sound and a large high definition television screen. The theater includes a snack room with see-through glass countertops, a display cabinet and a popcorn machine.
“The log home industry has grown over the years, offering home buyers a rustic form of primary living with modern amenities included,” said Jay Parmeter, owner of Golden Eagle.
A series of articles on the construction of the home will appear in Country’s Best Log Homes magazine.
The home will be open to the public and used for fund-raising events to benefit the hospital, which includes a complete children’s medical and surgical center, pediatric intensive care unit, an international recognized transplant surgery program, a children’s cancer center and a family-friendly atmosphere.
