Rustic Shutters a Good Fit for Log Homes

Homeowners who choose to build or buy log homes have one thing in common.  A love for wood!  Naturally, custom shutters are a great fit for log homes.

Plantation Shutters by Kirtz Shutters can be made from rustic woods such as knotty pine, knotty alder, western red cedar, cypress or reclaimed wormy chestnut.
