5500 Sq Ft Custom Jerome Davis

Archdale, NC, projected to June 2012

This plan is a custom design based off the Katahdin's Bonanza cedar log home.  The home is built on a full walk out basement with an office, furnace room, rec room, show room, and a guest bedroom and bathroom.  This home was built with Jerome Davis in mind as it has a complete wrap around covered porch and an elevator to access all levels. It also features custom built shower & bathrooms with all the doors being 3-0, making this home completely wheel chair accessible.  A great feature about his plan is the balcony off the loft so Jerome & Tiffany can view their farm and arena together with a morning cup of coffee​​.  Whatever your needs are today or if your planning for the future we would love to help.

This log home was built on a full walk out basement.  We moved the interior wall to best fit the needs and desires of the customer.  We also wrapped the entire house with a covered porch including a gazebo on the front corner and a screened in dining section on the back.  Another key modification was the added a breeze way to be used as a laundry room/ mud room and a two car garage.  We can take any plan and custom design it to your desires.

This is a custom log home.  The plan will be built on a full walk out basement with two bedrooms and a rec room facing the lake.​  The center section was raised up higher & extended 8 ft out on the back giving a more grand feeling to the great room area. The kitchen & dining room were moved to the left side to make room for a breeze way/laundry room.​  A full deck across the back overlooking the lake and a covered porch across the center section in front entry.​ Let us help you tailor your plans to fit your personality and dreams.
