Another cordwood home is being offered for sale in the Pacific Northwest. This gorgeous 2,176 sq. ft. is in the state of Washington, halfway between Portland and Seattle. Made from Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir, this is a massive post and beam framed beauty with large overhangs. Quality construction throughout, the floor plan is open and filled with light.
A primary check will run right through the large rounds, from inside to outside and must be stuffed to prevent air and insect infiltration. Huge Douglas Fir posts make a sturdy statement. These large pieces will continue to shrink in the wall, so a caulking like Permachink or Log Jam (which comes in mortar colors) is important to have on hand.
This home was built in 1994. It is on the top of a hill and shows a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and valley. It has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and sits on 1.26 acres. It has currently been taken off the real estate listings and is no longer for sale.
