A Log Bed

While Sitka Log Homes is best known for their beautiful, artistic work in home building, they don’t just spend their time selling blueprints or building log cabins. Some of their other projects, while on a smaller scale, showcase their attention to detail, their inventiveness, and their dedication to providing quality to their customers.

You can browse through the website to find plans, photos, and the like if you’re wanting a peek at their construction process, but their log and timber projects are just as interesting, especially if you’re wanting inspiration for your own work.

One of their most interesting designs is the log and timber bedframe, which utilizes both cut and raw wood, which creates a unique silhouette for the frame, something that reminds me of ancient fairytales and fantasy creations by C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien. I can picture this bed in a host of places, including a hobbit hole, a mountain cabin, or even a loft that needs a forest influence.

If you’re handy and want a new carpentry challenge, a look at their frame should be enough to work out what you can do in order to make it your personal DIY project. You can see it, along with their other smaller projects, at the Sitka Log Homes website.
