Dakota Log Home Builders is South Dakotas independent representative for Golden Eagle Log Homes. Since 1971 brothers Craig and Scott Connell along with their wives Kathy and Linda have brought custom homes to over 150 families in the Dakotas. We are now applying this experience to families who want to live the log home lifestyle.

The reasons for our success are pretty simple:

We work for you, the customer; you are the reason we are here.

We build long term relationships; ones that last far past the day you move in.

We listen to the customer; we pay attention to detail.

Every home is different; we work to fulfill the needs and wants of each customer.

Let us do the same for you. Whether your dream is for a year round home or a vacation retreat; we are the builder of choice for log homes in South Dakota.

For over 39 years we have built a solid reputation on dependability, craftsmanship and a commitment to service. We are here to guide you through each step of the process from inception to the day you move in. The process of planning and building a log home can seem long and you will face some challenges along the way; we will be there to make it an enjoyable and satisfying experience. We can offer our services for a simple owner built shell, all the way up to a complete turn-key luxury lodge; or anything in between.

Through Golden Eagle Log Homes we offer full-log, half-log, cabin and hybrid homes. With over 70 standard plans and thousands of custom plans we can quickly point you to the style, size and price range that meets your needs.

We have two locations to serve you; Craig & Kathy in Pierre and Scott & Linda in De Smet. Check out our website, then pick up the phone and call us to learn more on how you too can make your dream of living in a log home come true.
