    They’re all gorgeous! I love the Banner Elk though for the big windows.

    I can see why you’re having a hard time picking; they’re all beautiful! I voted Mountain View, but I also really liked Evergreen.

    Oh, how cool!  You get to build your own log home?!? That is so awesome!

    I really like Banner Elk and the moutain view.  The more window you have may help with heating costs.

    While I voted for Mountain View and also think Banner Elk is really nice, the one downside I see to them is the stairs. When it snows they are going to be a huge pain to deal with. Good luck, what beautiful options!!

    The Banner Elk is gorgeous but I would hate to heat it in the winter with those windows!  But maybe PA is different?  They’re all incredible.  I can see why you’d have a hard time choosing!  I don’t think I could pick a favorite without seeing the floor plans though.

    I like them all too, but aside from a wooded lot, what kind of terrain is around you? Many look like they should be in the mountains or at least have mountains to view. I’d also think about having to clean those huge windows, or add the cost of paying someone to do them into your overall plan.

    For a timeless style that is really homey, the first one fits the bill. I can’t see you tiring of a style like that.

    I’d like to see the floorplans and square footage too. I want to build a log myself, so I’m really curious.
