“Nothing is set in stone with interior finishes in our log homes,” said Joe Dymond of Jim Barna Log Homes. When Joe makes this statement he means it. Although most people associate log homes with a rustic interior design – many owners today have a broader decorating vision for their new home. Such was the case when Joe called me about combining contemporary glass blocks with traditional rustic elements in the master bathroom of a home he was building in Quakertown, Pennsylvania for Ken and Laurie Rittle. In the article below see how contemporary can meet rustic when you combine a flexible builder with progressive and creative homeowners.

When Bob Dewitt of Collins Georgia noticed the shower wall separating from his baseboard and noticed a spongy feeling in the shower of his log home he knew he had a problem. As Bob said, “After I investigated the problem I uncovered a 3’ x 3’ area under the shower which was badly rotted and action needed to be taken!” Bob’s existing acrylic shower base and pivoting brass finished door system did an OK job for many years but it was time for something new.
Learn below how Bob combined several new contemporary features in glass block walls and barrier free shower bases to create a functional, contemporary and open-design look in his rustic log home.
