Mantels: Giving Your Cabin A Personal Touch

In the end, cabins are about family. Nothing beats a cozy weekend on Lake of the Woods with loved ones, and for our money one of the easiest ways to truly turn your house into a home is with a welcoming, one-of-a-kind mantel.

As contractors,we know that your mantel is often pulling double duty in your cabin- not only is it often the focal point of whatever room it's in, but with a few knick-knacks and personal photos, it also adds a homey, personal touch to any space.
In the above example, we've mixed the rugged, natural elements of the locally sourced log with some homier decor and family photos.  Each log is supported by the custom metalwork that runs throughout the rest of the house as well- another example where fashion, function and family mix.
