New Eastern White Pine Log Home Brims with Historic Charm

EWP New Historic Log Home 1
This log home complete with a rusted corrugated metal roof looks like a historic pioneer cabin, but get a little closer and you’ll see some contemporary details, like brickwork on the foundation and chimney. Created by Hearthstone Log Homes and built by Champion Construction, this new Western North Carolina home was made using rustic beams of Eastern White Pine.

The home was intentionally built in two slightly different volumes – the main rustic log structure, and a secondary volume covered in board-and-batten siding. This was done to make it look as if a historic log cabin had been added to over the years, giving it a sense of authenticity.

Inside, hand-hewn wood textures are virtually everywhere you look, from the exposed timbers and log walls to the paneled ceiling and pine plank floors. The wood was stained in seven different shades to add a sense of depth.

Far from a period recreation, the home has all the comforts of modern life, including contemporary appliances and beautiful design details like doors reclaimed from a monastery. See more cabins by this Tennessee-based company at
