Scandinavian buildings are handcrafted using white pine logs with a minimum 12" top (or greater if desired). All logs are hand peeled. Corners are joined using (shrink-to-fit) saddle notches and each log is hand fit to the log below along its entire length, forming a hand carved, precise fit.
$35.00 to $40.00 per square foot of first floor area.

|Thank you for taking
the time to
inform yourself about my log home building operation.
I take great joy and pride in my work. I began my own business in 1992, after having worked for 2 other log home companies. My love of woodworking shows in the care and precision given to every new building.
Almost anything is possible when working with wood, and I would love the opportunity to help you make your dream home a reality! Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
