Jim Barna Log and Timber Homes is primarily owned by its Independent Distributors and Employees.  It is also one of the largest and most innovative log home manufacturers in the United States.  Jim Barna, our namesake, shaped the landscape of today’s log homes and the log home market.  More than thirty-five years ago, he initiated the trend of milling the logs to specific, uniform tolerances and joining them together with interlocking saddle-notch corners and tongue-and-groove walls to keep the structures weather-tight and the logs straight.
