Southern US Log Home Builder

U.S. Distributor

I have been in the building industry my entire life. Since 1990 I started working in the mountains of Colorado building palatial custom homes, renovations and large commercial buildings.

I was introduced to building handcrafted  log homes in 2000 where I learned the trade and the extremely detailed craftsmanship. I have a passion for the beautiful log features, grains and aroma produced by the logs.

Handcrafted vs Milled Log Homes

A handcrafted log home is the only “true” log home. In a handcrafted building, the log is still a natural log, the only alteration being that it has undergone removal of the outer bark and part or all of the “cambium” or inner bark layer. Because of this, each log still possess all of the uniqueness and character that nature intended it to have.
