The owners of Wellmack Homes chose this location as the ideal setting to build a home for their family, designed on the premise of Peace and Happiness.
The indoor areas flow effortlessly onto the array of covered patios overlooking the newly constructed pool. The log construction of this home was completed entirely with hand hewn western red cedar. The uniqueness of the home is that every log was hand placed and positioned with love and care.

Immediately on entering is the striking wood cutout entry leading to a beautifully handcrafted main stairwell.
