An Orvis log home to hang your hat
MANCHESTER, Vermont – For nearly 150 years, the Orvis Company of Vermont has outfitted sportsmen with fishing and hunting gear, country home furnishings and even a packable felt hat.Now, by partnering with Rocky Mountain Log Homes, of Hamilton, Montana, Orvis is able to provide customers with an authentic – and luxurious – log home in which to hang that Orvis hat.
The companies have teamed up for the development of a log home line embracing distinctive country living and an appreciation for the natural environment.Available in seven turn-key models priced from $550,000 to $1.2 million, the log homes range from about 1,500 square feet to 4,000 square feet, and each is customized with Orvis fixtures and decorative hardware.”The relationship is an inspired one. The fit is perfect,” says Mark Moreland, vice-president of Rocky Mountain Log Homes. “The Orvis line of products has always been known for their tradition of high quality. We’re proud to be associated with these folks.”
“For us,” says Dan O’Connor, director of Orvis Endorsed Programs, “Rocky’s reliance on naturally-seasoned, dry-standing timber made the partnership particularly attractive. Orvis customers care deeply about their relationship with the outdoors, they care about authenticity and they care about quality, and Rocky Mountain Log Homes embodies those values.”The kinship between the companies is reflected in the homes themselves, fashioned to the last detail by architects handpicked for their log home expertise at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The seven designs were painstakingly developed with an eye to blending textures and colors consistent with the warmth and traditional feel true to the Orvis name.
“As with all our homes, the homes we’ll produce for Orvis will not just be charming and traditional, but with our technology, they’ll be constructed to the highest standards,” said Mark Moreland, vice-president of Rocky Mountain Log Homes.Fly-fishermen and seasoned hunters should feel particularly cozy in these homes. In addition to the Orvis fixtures, which are included, the homes feature a Sportsman’s Room with a fly-tying area, hunting equipment storage, boot and wader dryers, and plenty of space in which to care for the dogs after a day in the field.Orvis, the oldest continuously operated catalog company in the country, has been the premier outfitter of the distinctive country lifestyle and sporting traditions since 1856. The company’s international headquarters for its mail order, e-commerce, retail and wholesale businesses are in Manchester, Vermont.
