Log Home Living

A New View

If anyone understands the value of waterfront property, it's Rachel and Sandy Wood. After all, their primary home is located in Wilmington, North Carolina, a popular resort city along the Atlantic seaboard. When the Woods decided to build a log vacation retreat in their home state, however, they opted instead for a spot in the mountains, on the banks of the sparkling New river.

A Family Affair

North Carolinians Greg and Angie Comer built their first log home exactly the way they wanted - with a little help from family and friends. Families who build together stay together. Just ask Greg and Angie Comer. The young couple looked no further than Angie's father, Pete Pyles, for assistance when building their first log home in 1997.

History Revisited

Childhood memories of a one-room log cabin led a North Carolina couple to their mountaintop dream home. Back in the Civil War days, the aptly named Iron Mountain in Asheboro was mined for the metal needed to make bullets. But by the late 20th century, it looked like a good homebuilding site to Tom and Peggy Britt.

Working Vacation

If there's one thing Pete and Jackie Pyles are passionate about, it's log homes. They not only live in one, but also enjoy helping others realize their own log-home dreams. The Pyleses stumbled into log homes by accident. They were living in a subdivision in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and purchased 25 acres on the Little Yadkin River in Tobaccoville.
