Log Home Builder

Log Homes


Log Home Custom Builder Smith Mountain Lake Timber Ridge Craftsmen Inc. Roanoke, Bedford, Franklin County, Virginia.

An obviously rugged, rustic, and traditional building method.

Log homes are popular in the Blue Ridge Mountains, even with their longer assembly time, lower enclosure system energy-efficiency, and often higher maintenance requirements.




Log Home "Packages"

The log home industry features many package log home dealers. We don't work for any log home dealer, distributor, or fabrication shop.  This means, of course, we work for YOU.

Before paying to initiate a design or start concept drawings with any package log home company, talk to us. We can help give you guidance and advice about the best way to design and build a log home, knowledgeable of challenges and opportunities inherent in this building style, including:

  • energy-efficiency considerations
  • durable design features, versus "log home bling"
  • maintenance: O Log Home, Thy Middle Name is . . .
  • wood species considerations
  • labor saving design, versus labor "sinks"
  • buying packages: what to include in a package, and what to remove
  • sequencing package delivery:  don't let them deliver the front door brass kickplate at excavation
  • sequencing package payments: you control your money, until you don't
