Custom Log Home Construction Options

What are the different options in log home construction? Log diameter, species, handcrafted, milled, chinked, post and beam, or timberframe…the list goes on. But, we’ve made it simple to show you the most popular sizes and styles. The end result is unique to your personal taste preferences and a fantastic look you will be proud to call your own. Remember, when you build a log home, the interior and exterior walls, insulation and structure all go in at that same time. In the long run, it will pay for itself. Your new, custom log home will add a unique flavor to your mountain lifestyle, adventurous spirit (and, let’s not forget), resale value.
