A friend sent me photos of this uniquely lovely cordwood home in Carnation, Washington USA.

I don’t have many details about the cordwood, but as you can see the home is well-maintained and has incredible motifs. 

The railing for the stairway is massively attractive! 

The roofline is unusual and compelling.  The drywall helps to throw light “back”  into the room. 

The kitchen/oven area has a brick countertop.  Looks like a great place to prepare a meal and entertain friends.  

The exterior is well landscaped and the deck has had a Yagisaka scorch for preservation. 

A massive central bearing post helps to hold up the amazing roof structure. 

A nighttime exterior photo shows off the beautiful cordwood. 

Upstairs there is an extra bathroom, bedroom and family room.
