Are your interior log cabin walls looking a little dusty or downright grimy? Maybe it’s time for a good cleaning. Don’t let it get to the point where a striping and sanding are necessary. That’s a messy job inside a furnished cabin.

Nothing is more memorable than smell. Consider that when picking flowers for your log cabin. Flowers should be enjoyed for their intoxicating fragrances as well as their beauty. Don’t rely on just one type of plant to provide fragrance. Choose a variety of plants that captivate your sense of smell wherever you go. Situate around your outdoor seating areas and in window boxes so you can enjoy scents on the breeze while doing dishes or having a glass of wine on the deck with friends. Put climbing vines on your pergolas, fences and trellises. Research when they bloom so you can enjoy scents throughout the year. Continue reading
The Timber Ridge was developed from a conceptual drawing of a custom home that was centered around a customer’s needs.
The customer wanted this home to portray a 100 year old building with the main goal of having a space for weekend retreats that could double as a hunting cabin. Energy efficiency was also an interest, so a 3″ insulation package was added to our log wall system.
Challenges faced during this project were the many design edits made to achieve the exact building that the customer wanted. Decisions varied from one model to another. With time and dedication from all parties and working with design and drafting, all challenges were overcome.
We were able to use design and drafting to create an exact design in partnership with the customer. The customer was able to design the 3 bedroom cabin kit home exactly how he had pictured it. Providing shell assembly service by our crews was a huge bonus for the customer.

Designing and building your dream log cabin home can be an exciting experience. Don’t let concerns over financing the construction derail you. There are options available if you don’t have cash upfront to cover building costs.
Many lenders offer construction loans to cover expenses during the log cabin building process. These loans are usually available for single unit, detached properties that are primary residences or second homes. The terms can be fixed rate or adjustable. A schedule of draws is agreed on by the home owner, builder and lender. Loan disbursements are made as work is completed on the log cabin. During construction, the home owner makes interest only payments calculated based on the outstanding loan balance.
