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.

Choosing the Right Timber Home Floor Plan

Choosing the right floor plan for your new timber home can be a difficult task because there are so many gorgeous options out there. At Logangate Timber Homes, we offer several floor plans from which you can choose, or you can design your own.  Our Homes are either 24’ or 28’ wide and the length is variable in 4’ increments, i.e. 24 x 36, 40, 44.   Fortunately, we’re here to help you decide which type will be perfect for you. The styles we offer are the Chalet, Grand Chalet, Cabin, Grandfather, Appalachian, Nantahala, and Sugar. Each of these homes is built with exceptional quality and are beautiful in their own right. Despite all of them being floor plans for timber homes, they each offer a distinct charm separate from one another.

Features of Each Floor Plan:

  • Chalet: Inspired by Swiss architecture, this style has gained popularity in the U.S. for its charm that is reminiscent of a secluded mountain home getaway.
  • Grand Chalet: A larger version of the Chalet floor plan, it has a similar architectural design but with the addition of extra space with one or two wings on either side.
  • Cabin: The aesthetics of a cabin are perfect for complementing the natural wooden environment. The Douglas firs used to create our cabins are very durable and give your home the strength it needs to withstand the wilderness.
  • The Grandfather: A large 2-story timber home featuring a large garage space, covered porch, and an optional fourth bedroom. This beautiful home is perfect for a family vacation home or for those that want to live with the luxury of a large timber home. 
  • Appalachian: Smaller than The Grandfather but similar in aesthetic quality, the Appalachian floor plan is great for smaller families or couples that desire the charm of a semi-spacious timber home.
  • Nantahala: This floor plan provides a quaint timber home with vertical paneling and a cozy second floor that contains two bedrooms, a bath, and a loft.
  • Sugar: Despite it being the smaller option of our timber homes, Sugar creatively uses its space to provide two bedrooms, two baths, a loft, storage area, and more.

No matter which floor plan you choose, each of our timber homes is designed to look great in the scenic environment of a wooded area or a suburban neighborhood. Logangate Timber Homes has over 50 years of experience providing timber home living to homeowners everywhere. To learn more about which floor plan will work best for you, contact us today!
