Hidden Log House: After

Who: Neil J
Where: Yadkinville, N.C.

Three fourths of the front section of the house was an actual log cabin with the remaining fourth being built in the 1880s as a timber frame structure. As you can see in the before picture of the upstairs den, the ceilings were about 7 feet high and all of that beautiful timber was covered in planks or plaster. We decided to raise the ceilings on the second floor, clean the entire log structure, and leave all of the interior log walls exposed. The rest of the house received a complete renovation as well.

Who did the work: I did some of the work myself Cost: More than $100,000
