Logangate Timber Homes Enhances Home Living

If you are thinking about building a home, there is certainly a lot to consider. You must choose a builder with years of experience and a rock solid reputation. Here at Logangate Timber Homes, we’ve been building the highest quality homes for well over fifty years. 

Why You Should Choose a Beautiful Timber Home

Logangate Panalized System

There’s just something to be said about the strong rustic stylings that timber homes possess. Whether it’s because of their “old world” charm or stupendous architecture, the allure of a timber home cannot be escaped. Often, people dream of having a retreat home in the mountains or some other wilderness setting. With Logangate Timber Homes, you don’t have to dream about it any longer, instead, you can live it. Our timber homes are designed to be affordable so that anyone can enjoy the rustic beauty of our great architectural designs. What makes our timber homes so affordable is the way in which they are built.

There are two ways that a timber home can be constructed; one is by use of timber framing and the other is post & beam construction. Our specialty here at Logangate is post & beam construction. The reason why we choose this method over timber framing is largely because of the affordability and turnaround time. Post & beam uses simpler connections or steel plates to connect the components. These connectors can either be exposed or hidden depending on your preference.

If exposed, they offer a great visual aspect to your timber home that cannot be found in timber framing. The use of prefabricated materials helps cut down on labor cost and expedites the erection of your new timber home. These are stark advantages over the more traditional timber frame construction. Essentially, you can have the beauty of a timber frame home in less time and for less cost. In fact, a well-built post & beam timber home is nearly indistinguishable from a timber framed home.

The advantages that our post & beam construction have to offer can be seen in all of our timber home models. Whether you’re interested in the Swiss architecture of the Grand Chalet, or the cozy design of the Sugar, you can be certain that your new timber home will look great and be done affordably and in a timely manner with Logangate.

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.

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.

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 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!
