Home, Sweet Log Home


Builders Jerry and Lisa Sears of Signet Residential, Inc. recently designed and built a beautiful log home on an island located in the Straits of Mackinac. Like any custom home project they undertake, they were committed to quality design and construction. With over 70 years of combined experience crafting custom homes, they wanted to create the perfect, full-log home island getaway.

Sitting on the home’s site was a cabin built in 1934, so the Sears wanted to honor the original with an all-new, reimagined, modern log home. While considering plans for the new cabin, the floorplan and intended use of the home were a central focus. The Signet team wanted to create a home that was usable year-round, accommodating both residents and guests comfortably.



The goal with the exterior of the cabin was to let the natural beauty of the cedar logs shine through in the home’s wooded setting. A stone foundation complements the logs and is true to the period design of the home. For the interior, it was the details that made it into the perfect, cozy cabin. From a variety of classic log home design details like the charming wood fireplace, to just the right furniture pieces with funky prints and fabrics, to the artwork and paintings throughout – you would never want to leave this unique space!

While it was not as easy as building with Lincoln Logs, this log home project was a memorable one for the Signet team. They look forward to custom-crafting your next home – whether a cozy log cabin or a modern showplace.
