Aikins Custom Log Homes

Welcome to Aikins Log Homes website. We are here to assist you right from the time the decision to build a log home is first made. We would be pleased to offer design ideas or can help you adapt an existing plan to the unique characteristics of log home construction. We can also provide working drawings.

 The price of a log home is comparable with that of other quality built custom homes. Prices vary depending on the style of construction and how elaborate the design of the home. Handcrafted Log Home

For your convenience, wiring holes and cut-ins for electrical boxes can be provided. We can also construct impressive timber staircases.

Glen Aikins, Log Craftsman
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.
