You CAN HAVE Energy Efficient & Affordable

Years ago when people had homes built there really wasn’t a big emphasis on building an energy efficient home. Things have definitely changed but that doesn’t mean that every builder is focused on the environment. In fact, many builders just want to keep costs down, so they will use materials that cost less in an effort to stay on budget. Here at Logangate Timber Homes, we want you to know that you can get your energy efficient home and STILL stay on budget.

If you are looking to build a getaway home in the woods, by the beach or just want that rustic look, a cabin kit from Logangate Timber Homes is a great option for you. We can help build your dream cabin quicker and more affordably. Our cabin kits are prefabricated. That means we stick build the walls, pre-cut the Douglas Fir Rafters, and fabricate the insulated roof panels in our manufacturing facility. This allows you to have a quicker build time and a more energy efficient cabin. We ship these pieces directly to your final building site. We have a variety of layouts to choose from that can be customized to meet your needs.

A Logangate Kit Home will SAVE YOU BIG on your Energy Bills

When you hear the term Kit Home it is simply referring to a prebuilt home. Here at Logangate Timber Homes, our Kit Home is made of pre-assembled walls (panelized construction) with the windows already installed. We also pre-cut and sand the Douglas Fir Rafters and fabricate the insulated foam roof panels. With this process, you can have your home dried in in only a few days minimizing your homes exposure to the weather. We also as a standard, install 5/8” polyiso rigid foam board underneath the wall sheathing. Not only do you get an R-4 value from the product but it also creates an important thermal break. We think this is a much better system than standard 2×6 walls with only OSB sheathing. 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.

We practice sustainable manufacturing in our facility, conserving electricity, striving towards zero waste, and using renewable energy like our roof top mounted solar panels. High quality green building that is not only affordable but remarkably beautiful as well! That’s the Logangate difference!

There are Reason’s why Douglas Fir Timbers ARE Rated BEST FOR Home Building

When you hear the term post and beam construction it is referring to the term for building home frames with large timbers. Typically steel plates often tie members together. This allows for a home to have much more clerestory space to enhance the beauty of wood. 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 build amazing homes at fair and honest prices!

Each and every one of our homes is built with the environment in mind. They are ALL 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 energy bills. Our post and 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. Douglas fir lumber is considered to be one of the best woods for home building. This wood’s qualities for strength and durability give it high grades. When these trees are harvested and cut into pieces, the lumber is considered one of the finest types of wood in the building industry. It is renowned for its strength and durability. Specifically, it has received the highest softwood lumber grades for its ability to bend, tension parallel-to-grain, horizontal sheer, and compression. All these factors make Douglas fir lumber particularly adept at resisting harsh weather and also easy to nail and bond together.

Douglas Fir is a breathtakingly beautiful wood. There are few things more breathtakingly beautiful than a timber home with expansive ceilings and drop dead gorgeous views. What many people don’t realize is that they don’t have to do standard flat drywall ceilings. We want you to know that an expansive timber frame style home can be yours for about the same price. Our post & beam construction provides vaulted wood ceilings supported by the strength of Douglas fir timbers.

Here at Logangate, we specialize in classic architecture including mountain lodges, custom homes, lakeside retreats and all types of timber frame structures. We design and build ground up efficient and elegant timber frame homes. For over 45 years, we have been in business and strived to provide our customers with beautiful, energy efficient, affordable homes. Manufactured responsibly and sustainably, we want to build you your DREAM HOME.

Stop Settling for a Nice Home—Your DREAM House is Within Reach

Many homeowners that I come across love the look of a Timber frame home but think it’s way out of their price range when it comes down to it. They admire these homes when they see them on TV shows but when it comes time to build they end up settling. Many end up going with a more typical and standard flat drywall ceiling. The thinking behind this is that a custom timber frame style of home is going to break the bank. Here at Logangate Timber Homes, this is what we do best! Why have standard flat drywall ceilings when an expansive Timber frame style home can be yours for about the same price? 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.

Simply speaking, Timber homes are made with post and beam or timber frame construction, using heavy timbers instead of 2x’s or roof trusses. There is nothing like looking up at the ceiling of a timber home with its real wood beauty.
