- 1107 square foot addition of a Master Suite to an existing log home.
Elk in the front yard. The Snake River not far away. A solid two story whole log home in the woods. Often the challenge of an addition is how best to add space to what is often a well-organized existing floor plan. The Owners wanted to add a Master Suite on the ground level for easier access and it needed to appear as if it had always been part of the house.
Reese Design Studio used an existing bedroom converted to a sitting room to access the new Master Suite. The program consisted of a bedroom area, two walk in closets, and a bathroom. Additional storage space was created as well.
The existing home was of whole logs. The Owners were encouraged to use framed walls with log siding to boost the thermal and air infiltration properties of the addition. The use of log siding allowed the addition to blend seamlessly with the original aesthetic.
