There are many ways to describe the character of a log home. Some people would say Custom Log Homewarmth; others might use the word strength; for others peacefulness comes to mind. One thing is certain, no one would say boring! However you put it, there are few homes that generate the same passion or enthusiasm as a log home.

We have been selling and building the log home lifestyle for many years. Some of our homes have been grand and glorious; others a bit more modest. On this site, we will try to detail our experiences with log homes. Some of what we describe here will be our day to day experience with projects and customers. At other times, we may provide information useful to current and future log home owners.
