Building a Custom Log Home or Log Cabin
Planning your new home takes a lot of time and consideration and any help we can offer to make this process easier is our main objective. We've built our own log home, and we've helped others build their dream log homes and cabins. This experience can help you avoid common pitfalls and make informed choices about the right log home or cabin for your lifestyle and budget. Put our experience to work for you!
We particularly appreciate your willingness to listen, to design to our unusual and unique requests, and to support the sourcing of great materials and partners to build this new structure.
With gratitude and appreciation to you, Jerry, and to your team. We are very grateful we selected you to be our partner on this project, and wish you continued success.

We Specialize in Cedar Log Homes
Incense cedar is highly desirable for log homes because it is extremely stable and naturally resistant to insects and rot. It also has the highest insulating qualities of any wood suitable for log homes.
Incense cedar forests are found primarily in southern Oregon and in California's Sierra Nevada mountains. Ranked as one of the most dimensionally stable wood species, incense cedar stands up to wide fluctuations in temperature and humidity without warping, checking or shrinking away from fasteners. It can be hand-tooled or machine-tooled to exact tolerances, and provides a smoother, more uniform surface than pine and other softwoods. Such properties make incense cedar an ideal material for the precision milling and machining processes of log homes.
Incense cedar is an abundant, renewable resource that is grown, managed, and harvested on a sustained-yield basis in accordance with the strictest forestry regulations in the world. The annual volume growth of incense cedar exceeds the annual harvest by a factor of two-to-one, ensuring an ample supply of the species well into the future.
Incense cedar lumber is used for siding, decking, moulding, interior paneling, and landscape material. Even the bark is used as fuel for electric cogeneration facilities.
