Then one night, Tom was channel surfing when tog-style barstools. chiseled-edge granite countertops, and a copper farm sink give touches of rustic elegance to the kitchen.

The pull of a rocking chair makes for guilt-free downtime something on HGTV caught his eye. It was a cabin built out of old-growth, tight-grained, western red cedar logs. With no caulking or chinking between logs, the airtight structure wras reported to be impervious to mold, mildew, and insect infestation. Tom and Sue also learned that the home promised great acoustic ability for extra peace and quiet.
It wras the striking look of the structure, however, that kept their eyes fixated on the television screen. The couple was mesmerized by the mammoth cedar logs, the tongue-and-groove construction, and the carefully handcrafted detail afforded to each log.
It was just what we wanted,” says Tom. “We were so impressed with the quality of the product and the master craftsmanship.”
The cabin featured was built by Pioneer Log Homes Midwest in Grafton, Wisconsin. The Jellisons’ search was over.
