Using Stacked Logs to Create Indoor Room Divider

Using Stacked Logs to Create Indoor Room Divider

New England in the winter provides ample opportunity to admire the beauty of stacked wood logs. These piles get me to thinking that, in the right space, perhaps a stacked log "wall" or room divider could be beautiful.

I couldn't find an actual photo of this idea so I'm using this outdoor example, designed by Alex Scott Porter, as inspiration.

In a large loft space, you could create a half or three quarter high "wall" of stacked wood to separate a space. I'm not thinking of this as a place to store your firewood, which you deplete over the course of the winter - I'm thinking of this as a permanent fixture. And maybe it would make more sense if you cut the logs in half lengthwise so it wasn't such a deep "wall". By combining round and triangular shaped logs you could create the divider such that light peeks through some of the gaps in the stack.

I don't have a large open space to execute an idea like this but maybe you do.

Now you all go on and tell me why this is such a kooky idea.
