Small Log Cabins...
BIG STONE HEARTHS!

Small log cabins have a special charm and feeling all their own. Cozy and comfortable -- often anchored by a great stone hearth -- they evoke nostalgic images of another time . . . . .

. . . . . . . a time, long ago, when life seemed simple.
A time when life appeared less hectic, and the pace was much slower.   A time before the advent of cell phones, computers and email.

Secretly,  many  of  us  long  for those days,  once  again . . . . . even if only occasionally  . . . . .  or for just a brief period of time.    A small log cabin pro-
vides  an  ideal  escape  for just those moments when we need to  get  away from it all.





Warmed by a crackling fire, we turn our thoughts away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and let our imaginations wander  . . . . . and wonder about how it must have been.  As  if  stepping  onto the canvas of a Terry Redlin painting, we immerse ourselves in the idealized reality of a simpler time.

No matter the overall size of your small log cabin  --  whether  just a few hun-
dred square feet or a thousand square feet -- a substantial stone hearth is a "must."    The heart -- or hearth -- of any log cabin is the fireplace. Not only the focal point of the room over which it  presides,  it  is the prominent archi-
tectural  element that anchors the en-
tire  structure.    The dominant design element   around   which   family  and friends  gather  when getting together. The single most important place in the cabin to go for solace and comfort.

When it comes to great stone hearths, cabin size really doesn't matter!    The tiny,  picturesque  log  cabin  pictured below  is  a  perfect  example  of  this. Anchored  by  the  striking,  solid  and substantial  stone  fireplace  shown at right,  the  little cabin  presents a pic-
ture perfect image of cozy comfort!

The following images of  fieldstone  and moss rock fireplace surrounds  pic-
tured below, right, anchor the cottage-like cabin designs on the left.  The cabins range in size from 432 square feet . . . . . shown directly below with a wood stove set inside the fireplace opening . . . . . to 1,148 square feet. Though the scale of the stone hearths relative to the scale of  the  cabins
is substantial,  the soaring ceilings and open floor plans combine to make it all work ever so beautifully!
