This handcrafted cottage located on a large acreage was built for the owner of a conventional home building company who wanted a vacation getaway for himself and his family. Featuring Davidson's unique chinkless Dovetail joinery technique, it is embellished with many unique features - both inside and out. A massive log with unusual taper stretches the full length of the home to dominate the main floor ceiling space and make for interesting conversation. An artistically shaped, hand carved staircase constructed with large, rounded timbers stretches to the second floor loft to provide a closer view of the perlins and truss work above. And in the rear of the cottage a spacious deck extends the full length of the house to overlook the private lake outside - offering guests the ideal spot for hours of rest and relaxation in nature.

"Because I'm a construction guy, Matt and I talk the same language. I was quickly able to put my trust in him and came to depend on his expert knowledge. Matt worked with my ideas and didn't try to talk me out of what I wanted. That was important to me. But he also provided me with a lot of good ideas, too. [In the end,] I was impressed how everything fit together so perfectly. You couldn't even fit a piece of paper between the logs. Matt gave me what he told me he would and even a little more. I was really, really pleased with everything." - Rey, Homeowner
