Although log homes and cabins can be found in the mountains, along the river, or lakeside, one design element will always stay the same: the aesthetic appeal of using the surrounding environments as design inspiration. These homes are meant to blend into the environment as if they have always been there. Natural materials are common throughout the exterior and interior of these buildings.
Lakeside home, log cabins, and other mountainside retreats can be prone to hail, high snow volumes, and high winds. So, it's important to utilize a certain type of panel in order to keep your home or getaway protected. Once you have a good understanding of the environmental demands, you can start narrowing down the profile that matches the look you are trying to achieve.
Metal siding is a great option to break up long runs of log or stone on mountain or lakeside cabins. With rustic finishes that blend into the surrounding environment, metal can be the perfect accent in an entryway or to surround large picture windows. When combined with the proper substrate, metal siding also offers a fire resistant solution.
Interior spaces in metal cabin designs are warm and cozy. Rooms are designed around open spaces and grand fireplaces. Some of the best spaces bring the outdoors inside to create cohesive spaces between the interior and exterior aesthetics.
