Log Cabin Home Designs... Monumental Magnificence!
The log cabin home designs featured here showcase a spectacular en- tertainment lodge on a 4,500 acre cattle
ranch in Montana. Designed by Ewing Architects in Pasadena, California, this 10,000 square foot stone and log
structure is absolutely extraordinary!
Rarely do we get an opportunity to see a private lodge of this stature. Meticulously designed and magnificently
executed, this is truly one for the ages!
post and beam
construction, the lodge at Shining Mountain Ranch utilizes generous amounts of stone on its exterior.
Pictured above, right, and below is the front facade with its large entry tower.
A side view shows some of the massive stone chimneys in this log cabin home design. Note the built-in storage
area for firewood.
At the rear, a massive covered porch and stone terrace dominate the fa- cade . . . . .
. . . with a close-up view showing a wall of multi-pane windows and doors that open onto the terrace, and
enormous log columns supporting the porch roof.
Stone is also used in abundance on the interior. The
dry stacked stone
fireplace pictured below -- one of many in the lodge -- is located in the foyer.
