The walls and trusses were beautifully finished and work together in perfect harmony without taking over the interior space.
“It is exactly what I wanted in our summer home — a simple environment with an open unified interior,” says Natalie Roberts describing her second home nestled in Vermont’s rolling hills.
Accommodating a Range of Decor Options
Natalie chose Northeastern Log Homes for many reasons, not the least of which is the eastern white pine used in all the structural elements, logs and interior walls, which is clearer and smoother than many competitors.
“The walls don’t compete with artwork and furnishings and can accommodate a wide range of decor options — from rustic to formal. Another advantage of the flat interior wall surfaces — they don’t collect dust!
The quality of Northeastern’s materials not only enhances beauty but figures into practical matters as well. Building a home with so much glass in Vermont’s colder climes initially raised concerns over comfort and energy efficiency. “My family and I have been here at all times of the year. There are never any drafts in the winter and the home stays cool in the summer without air conditioning,” notes Natalie.
Premium Quality Materials
To assure consistent high quality, Northeastern specifies Andersen 400 Series Tilt-Wash Windows and Frenchwood doors throughout all of its Premier series models.
The Regal has two guest rooms and bath on one side, the master bedroom suite with its own full bath on the other, while the gathering area is in the center. This gives guests and their hosts a lot of privacy, and the prow front is great for taking in the views.
