The Best Log and Timber Homes of 2019

Help us find the "Best of the Best" for the year!

Earlier this year, you voted on our Facebook to let us know which log and timber homes were your top 10. Now the "Best Log and Timber Homes of the Year" special edition is available on newsstands, featuring all 10 stunning homes.


But we're not done yet; it’s time to choose the “Best of the Best.” Scroll through the homes below and click through to tour each one. Then, to vote for your favorite, fill out the submission form on the page of the home tour you’d like to cast a vote for.


Plus, there’s something in it for you. Each voter will be entered into a drawing to receive two tickets to a Log & Timber Home Show of your choice, admission for two to the Log & Timber Home Live University and access to our Log & Timber Home University Online/On- Demand courses — all designed to help you plan the best kind of log or timber home: yours. It’s a prize package valued at more than $400. And you don’t have just one chance to win; 10 lucky people will be selected at random from the pool of voters!


You can vote for more than one home, but only one submission per house counts. So be sure to check out all 10 homes! Voting ends July 31. Winners are announced on August 5.
