Our Controlled Factory Setting = BIG ENERGY SAVINGS FOR YOU

Many people who are in the process of having a home built really don’t understand the true meaning of the term ‘pre-fab home.’ A pre-fab home also known as a pre-built home is basically a home that has pre made pieces, like walls, gable panels, roof panels, etc. Here at Logangate Timber Homes, we are extremely proud of our reputation as one of the trusted leaders in the industry. We’ve built our stellar reputation by building the highest quality homes at fair and honest prices. We build your home wall panel by panel in our controlled factory setting. This allows for the highest quality construction and therefore a precision fit on the job site. The beauty of our pre-fab home is that since the walls of our homes are built in our facility, you can get an air tight seal that is hard to create outside of our factory setting, eliminating drafts and helping you save energy dollars. Many of our satisfied customers say because of this building method, their energy bills have been the lowest they’ve ever been!

Here at Logangate Timber Homes, building beautiful custom, dream homes is what we do best. Logangate is so committed to green building, that we practice sustainable manufacturing, conserving electricity, use renewable energy and strive toward zero waste. We have been in business for over 50 years and strive to provide our customers with a beautiful, energy efficient, and affordable home. You can rest assured that every single one of our homes is built responsibly and sustainably. No exceptions.

The way that Logangate does business is different from other companies. We purchase directly from the lumber mill and factories so that we are able to cut out the middle man markup. Our homes can be customized to fit your needs, style and budget. From timber homes, to pedestal homes, to cantilever homes and more we can help you build the homes of your dreams. Affordably and with an emphasis on taking care of our environment. That’s the way Logangate does business.

We put the “Can” back in Cantilever with our Pedestal Homes

The Pedestal Home is one of Logangate’s most popular homes for a variety of reasons. For starters, this design is truly unique featuring a main structure that cantilevers ten feet from all four sides of a small foundation. This allows you to build in locations that are otherwise unavailable due to terrain or cost. The small footprint means minimum site disturbance preserving the natural state of the building area. Our custom Pedestal Home is perfect for sensitive sites that include steep slopes, flood plains and marshes. This unique design enables you to truly build anywhere!

Our pedestal home makes less of an environmental impact and makes it easier and more affordable to build on locations like mountainsides and coastal areas. The skies the limit. With a home from Logangate you can build right on the beach with less cost than traditional construction because the foundation is smaller so it costs less to raise your home to the elevation requirements. You can even build on steep slopes. Get that mountaintop view with minimal environmental disturbance. Plus our home is built to resist extreme weather no matter what Mother Nature dishes out!

Here at Logangate Timber Homes, we are extremely proud of our reputation as one of the trusted leaders in the industry. We use very high quality materials that are extremely green and energy efficient. Plus, we keep our overhead down so we can offer fair and honest pricing. We have been building beautiful, custom built homes for over 45 years. We strive to provide our customers with beautiful, energy efficient, affordable homes. Manufactured responsibly and sustainably, you can feel good about purchasing a gorgeous Logangate Home.

Logangate Doesn’t just Build Homes: WE BUILD Dream Homes

To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeous timber home. I was watching a dream home episode on HGTV and everyone was ooohing and ahhhing at how breathtakingly beautiful the featured timber home was. I really believe that homeowners have their homes built with standard flat drywall ceilings because they simply don’t know their options. They just don’t know that a timber home can be built for about the same price!

Here at Logangate Timber Homes, we are proud of our reputation as one of the trusted leaders in the industry. We’ve earned our name because we are extremely good at what we do and we do it affordably. Built with the environment in mind our homes are built to be environmentally sound which will save you money and create less waste. It’s also a way of building that saves energy, which in return will save you a significant amount of money every month on your heating and cooling bills. Our post & beam construction provides vaulted wood ceilings supported by the strength of Douglas fir timbers. The benefit of Douglas fir timbers is that they are stronger, more durable and can handle higher impacts and weight loads. This means your timber home can withstand more extreme weather and are built to last longer than other wood types.

For over 45 years, Logangate has been dedicated to providing high quality and gorgeous homes to our customers. You can rest assured that our wall & roof components are built in a controlled factory environment for the highest level of craftsmanship. We understand that building a home is a very big decision and investment. We are proud to be an energy efficient builder. The way we build, will save you a significant amount of money every month on your heating and cooling bills. We also keep our overhead down so we can offer fair and honest pricing. We strive to provide our low environmental impact homes at an affordable price. We also put our homeowners’ needs first to ensure that you not only end up with a great house but your DREAM house. That’s the way Logangate does business.
