In a log home, staircases are typically placed in the center of the home so that it can be viewed from all sides. This is why spiral staircases or curved pan staircases (see below) are typically the optimal choice.
They are made from steel or metal
Another feature of log home staircases is that they are usually not made of wood, but rather steel or metal. Having stairs built of a different material provides a show-stopper feature that will be a topic of conversation.

The steel or stainless steel stringers mimic a ribbon-like appeal as they flow up the curvature of the staircase.
