Mountain Log Homes

The mountains — the quintessential idea of where to build a log home.

  1. From the lake, the home's full height is visible, while from the street, it appears low-slung.

    Timber Home in the Catskills is a Masterpiece of Craftsmanship

    The natural beauty just outside this home's expansive windows is matched by the gorgeous wood framing and trim inside. From the curb it presents a low facade, but on the water side it uses large windows and a cathedral ceiling to take advantage of the views.

  2. The Knaffs could have used wall logs as small as 8-inches, but say they chose 12-inch ones "for stability." The home's windows are Jeld-Wen Premium.

  3. Set in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, this handcrafted structure by Pioneer Log Homes of British Columbia is the permanent residence for Brian and Karen Wray. As a whimsical touch, Pioneer carved bear paws into the posts supporting the front porch. The home is Green certified due to features such crushed rock around the perimeter of the house, which allows the snow pack to drain back into the aquifer. The owners added a metal grate in the Brazilian Ipe hardwood step leading to the front door so snow would fall through and not create a hazard for their guest.
