Modern Timber Frame Mountain Homes

We spend more time in our homes than almost any other place. At Logangate Timber Homes, we believe that modern mountain homes should be more than just a place to live, it’s a place to make a statement. Living in the mountains is a luxury experience and getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life is beneficial in many ways. Whether you’re looking for a vacation home, investment home, or a forever home, you can’t go wrong with the tranquility and rustic beauty of modern mountain homes by Logangate. Our timber frame cabin kits allow for expansive vaulted rooms with the warmth of douglas fir timbers. Most timber companies use lesser pine or similar tongue and groove but Logangate ups it one more by providing 2×6 Douglas Fir tongue and groove. Thus all of our mountain home plans’ ceilings are designed entirely with Douglas fir to create a dramatic and beautiful environment. Douglas Fir is not only beautiful, but it is also the strongest softwood available. Logangate Timber Frame Mountain Homes are built with strength, beauty, and durability in mind.

Cantilevered Home

Cantilevered Home

Sloped terrains can be challenging to build on, but not for Logangate’s modern mountain homes. The pedestal home by Logangate Timber Homes has the unique ability to cantilever 10-12 feet in all four directions. Steeply sloped lots are now buildable because the pedestal home requires only a small foundational footprint. Less foundation, especially on a steep lot, means dramatic cost savings on your foundation and final timber home build. Not only do you get a uniquely designed Cantilevered Home but timber frame mountain homes offer a living experience that is unlike any other. At Logangate, we offer Classic and Contemporary Pedestal homes, timber frame mountain homes, and many other mountain home plans to accommodate anyone’s style and taste as well as offer a wide range of plans with different square foot parameters.
Post & Beam Cabins

Post & Beam Cabins

Our Post and Beam style utilizes a post in the wall that supports the Douglas Fir rafter coming down on that point load. Our rafters are 4’ on center thus we typically grow or shrink the floor plans in 4’ increments. We also offer a fully exposed loft floor system using the same Douglas Fir that you would see in the ceiling. Capturing your views is most critical. Our Timber Frame Kit designs do just that. True Timber Home designs do not have attics therefore our clerestories are just that, clear and open which allows us to design glass all the way to the ceiling.
PreFab Timber Frame Home Kit

PreFab Timber Frame Home Kit

Logangate Timber Frame Mountain Homes are a Hybrid Timber Home company. We stick build the walls and pre-install the windows all in our plant, that process is called panelization. With our table jigs, we are able to build the walls with much tighter tolerances than if they were built in the field. We pre-cut and sand all the timbers and pull all the material you would need to dry in your new home. You can say Timber Frame Kit Home or Prefab Timber Frame Kit Home, but the technical term is Panelized Post and Beam Home. That is what we do.

Quality Home Builders Make The Difference

Quality Home Builders Make The Difference

It sometimes seems that many new homeowners that come across a post-and-beam home or timber cabin often love the look of the timber frame but think it’s way out of their price range when it comes down to it. Perspective homeowners admire these homes when they see them on TV shows, but when it comes time to build, they settle. 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 will break the bank, or finding quality home builders will be too difficult.

At Logangate Timber Homes, we are quality custom home builders that are dedicated to bringing unmatched beauty to a douglas fir home that will last for generations. Why have standard flat drywall ceilings when an expansive Timber frame-style home can be yours for about the same price? Quality home builders like Logangate Timber Homes are here to help. We are quality custom home builders that have lasted for over 50 years.

What Sets Logangate Apart: Building Materials and Experience

The professionals at Logangate have perfected post and beam construction and douglas fir homes. At Logangate, our homes feature vaulted wood ceilings supported by exposed Douglas Fir timbers to accentuate the cabin look at feel. The benefit of Douglas fir timbers is that they are stronger, more durable, and can handle higher impacts and weight loads. This means our douglas fir homes can withstand more extreme weather and are built to last longer than other wood types that may be of lower quality. There are few things that are more beautiful than a spacious timber home with expansive ceilings and drop-dead gorgeous outdoor views.

Post and Beam Professionals

The professional builders at Logangate have perfected the method of Post and Beam construction. What exactly is “post and beam” construction? This building style is often confused with timber framing in homes, but the two styling methods are very similar. Post and Beam construction refer to building home frames with large timbers that typically use steel plates to tie members together. The steel plates join the timbers rather than in a timber frame home, where wooden pegs are used to join the framing. This allows for a home to have much more clerestory space to enhance the beauty of wood. Since the natural feel of exposed wood sets the tone of your home, using premium and blemish-free Douglas Fir is important to create a perfect feel. At Logangate in our ceilings, we use a 2 x 6 T & G Douglas Fir, which is rare and, of course, matches the timbers perfectly!

Dedication To Quality

When it comes to finding quality home builders for modern post and beam homes, choosing the professionals at Logangate Timber Homes is the obvious choice! At Logangate Timber Homes, we source Douglas Fir timber materials that come from Oregon’s coast and the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific Northwest. Logangate’s partnered timber vendors are carefully selected to ensure the quality of timber is not diminished in any way, from the felling of the tree all the way to the end result of the home.

What does that mean for the homebuyers who built a home with Logangate? Our sourced materials lead in categories such as impact bending, crushing strength, and side hardness, all while featuring blemish-free beauty. To provide lasting quality, our timbers are treated with anti-stain and anti-mold treatment. After the timbers are treated, the materials are cleared and end-sealed. The result of these carefully selected and crafted timbers is a breathtaking home that is expected to last generations. Take a look at our home plan selections, and you’ll see why our homebuyers never want to leave.

Logangate’s Longstanding Legacy

Why Go For Eco Friendly Cabin Designs and Cabin Kits

Why Go For Eco-Friendly Cabin Designs and Cabin Kits


Since the idea of “global warming” became the topic of everyday discussion in the early 2000s, environmentally friendly initiatives have begun sprouting up around the world. Today, the climate crisis has since been rebranded as “climate change,” but the problems remain the same: long-term changes in weather patterns that are a result of human activity and carbon emissions. It’s not all doom and gloom, though. There are hundreds of thousands of environmental, sustainable, and green initiatives that are being pitched every year.


Futuristic vertical farming initiatives, heavy investments in wind and solar, and electric vehicle initiatives are just a few of the many ways the world is combating climate change. At Logangate Timber Homes, we’ve joined the fight against climate change with our green building processes, eco-friendly cabins, and eco-friendly cabin designs


Rediscovery of Eco-Friendly Cabin Designs


With rising home prices, the talk of “van life” and tiny homes has been widely discussed in the past few years. Many Millenials and Generation Z have gone from outfitting Sprinter vans to completely rebuilding old school buses (often lovingly referred to as a“Skoolie”). While the van life, tiny home, and Skoolie fad have more or less worn off, the idea of small luxury living persists. As millennials settle down, the desire to be a homeowner free from the stress of urban living has become a common theme, and eco-friendly cabins have become a rediscovered trend. Modern eco-friendly cabin designs can vary widely, from single-unit eco-friendly cabin kits to modern cantilevered homes these styles are a few examples among many popular choices.


More recently, uniquely designed and unusually shaped homes have become very popular in the digital era of social media and influencer marketing. Modern-designed homes like converted airplanes, lighthouses, hobbit homes, and shipping container homes have taken social spaces by storm. What these unique homes have in common is that many of them are designed around the surrounding environment to complement the scenery, allowing them to be eco-friendly in the sense that they do not disturb the natural environment without serious alterations. Taking this concept into consideration, cabin designers like Logangate Timber Homes have entered the market with eco-friendly cabin kits that are less radical than a converted airplane but are still uniquely beautiful, environmentally friendly, and super-insulating to save on utility bills and costs.


Green Building Practices That Matter


Modern eco-friendly cabin designs focus on green building practices and sustainability. This means that the materials are ethically sourced, processed, and replacement trees are planted to give back to the environment. Once the materials are cut and sent to the manufacturers, they can either be traditionally stick-built or prefabricated in a manufacturing facility. There are pros and cons to both processes, but many modern home builders are opting for prefabrication because of the many benefits that come with premanufacturing homes.


On average, building a home using eco-friendly cabin designs will take less time than a traditional stick-built house, will last longer, and will be much more energy efficient. The energy efficiency comes from the taut fitting of the home panels. The compact fittings eliminate drafts in the end product of the cabin home, which ultimately saves the homeowner a considerable amount of money from lost heat and cooling.


Eco-Friendly Cabins and Designs


When people think of cabins, they typically envision something in mountainous regions or in forested areas. Eco-friendly cabin designs often include the natural environment around the home so that the home feels at one with nature instead of conquering it. Eco-friendly in this sense means having a sustainable low-carbon footprint in the home while also keeping the impact and presence of the home minimally invasive to the area.

“Unity, a Modern Cabin”







Pedestal homes are a great way to have a large home with good square footage while having a small foundation compared to the bulk of the structure. This is often done with smart cantilevering designs to allow the home to balance over steeply sloping lots without losing any structural integrity and giving the home a unique look as if it were floating over the landscape. The clever use of a smaller foundation has the added benefit of saving on the cost of the overall home price while also minimally impacting the environment. Compared to a traditional home with a standard foundation, pedestal homes require much less digging and leveling.


When outfitting an eco-friendly cabin or home, it’s important to remember that many small actions can culminate into a big difference. If possible, try using energy star appliances, lighting, insulation, windows, and systems. Keep unnecessary things unplugged and consider the use of solar panels if you’re interested in long-term investment. All of these things can add up to make a considerable difference in both the environment and your long-term budgets!


Sustainable Living for Future Generations


As global temperatures continue to rise and climate change causes extreme and unpredictable weather patterns, it’s important to collectively play our parts in helping to slow the rate of carbon emissions. For manufacturers like Logangate Timber Homes, we build eco-friendly homes that are sustainably built and designed to reduce the amount of energy required for heating and cooling. Logangate Timber Homes are also durable and will last for generations to come.

Mountain Home Builders That Are Dedicated

Mountain Home Builders That Are Dedicated

You’ve probably seen or heard about old homes that are damaged, in a state of disrepair, or bought and flipped by independent contractors with less-than-pure intentions. Contractors who are looking to make a quick buck often find old homes that need repair and pay a significantly lower price for a greater profit margin. At Logangate Timber Homes, we have been mountain home builders for over 50 years.  We are dedicated to building long-lasting homes that increase in value instead of decreasing over time; this means you don’t have to be a victim to flippers when its time to sell twenty, thirty, or fifty years from now!

You might ask, how does building a timber frame home from the ground up with professional mountain home builders make a difference in the long term? Or, why are mountain house home builders an important factor in home design? We’re here to discuss how building a timber frame home with the right builders makes for a great investment in not just your lifestyle but also as a financial and generational investment.

Experience Is Key When Picking a Mountain House Home Builder

Finding mountain home builders when building a new home can be easily done by picking the first company that comes up on a search engine, but there’s no guarantee in quality when it comes to blindly choosing a mountain house home builder. Instead, choose an experienced builder that practices building with great attention to detail, honest pricing, efficient building methods, and resource sustainability. Factors to consider when choosing a builder:

Sources of Materials: Having access to and using high-quality materials when building a home is the cornerstone of any successful build. At Logangate Timber Homes, our timber materials are sourced from certified parties, and seedlings are planted to sustain future generations. Logangate’s timber materials are carefully selected, processed, and cut to standard sizes without compromising the quality of the materials. The end result is a home that is built to last for many generations.

Previous Customer Satisfaction: Customer satisfaction is a compelling indicator of home-building success. Building a home is a financially significant milestone in anyone’s life and having a list of previously satisfied customers is a symbol of a reliable home builder. At Logangate Timber Homes, our favorite parts of the job are working side by side with our amazing customers and building them their dream homes! 

Expert Experience: Experience is arguably the most important variable in this list of factors. Finding experienced professionals can be difficult in the home-building world because many home developers do not last more than a few years. Unlike other developers, at Logangate Timber Homes, we have not only survived for fifty years, but we have also thrived. Logangate has existed since the late 1960s, and we have built a reputation through our homes. Today, Logangate is one of the most trusted leaders in the home-building industry. 

Why Mountain Home Builders Prefer Panelized Construction

At Logangate Timber Homes, we use a premanufacturing process called panelized construction. The panels are premade in pieces, so they come together quickly and efficiently on-site instead of traditional stick-built homes. The advantage to building a wall panel by panel in a climate-controlled factory setting makes for an end-product that is ensured the highest quality construction and a precision fit once the pieces are delivered on-site. Precision-fit panels eliminate drafts and unnecessary gaps and increase the overall efficiency of the home. Over time, this build method helps our homeowners save a substantial amount on monthly energy bills. Our kit homes are pre-built homes, and our homebuyers can create customized floor plans to their preferences.

Logangate’s Partners in Quality Materials

At Logangate, we are dedicated to providing our homeowners with the highest quality materials and outstanding, detail-orientated customer service. We strive to provide eco-friendly homes at a price that our interested homebuyers can afford. From our sustainable manufacturing to our high-quality Douglas fir timbers, T&G, and extensive experience, our homebuyers enjoy the luxury of a less-stressful home-building experience.

Logangate’s 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 Logangate’s timber homes can withstand more extreme weather and are built to last longer than other wood types.

Dedication to Our Homeowners and the Logangate Brand

Building a timber frame home can be an enormous challenge for uninitiated homeowners. When a shoddy home is built, fixing the mistakes can be discouraging and frustrating. Why expose your dream home to that risk when you can just have it done correctly on the first try? At Logangate Timber Homes, we are dedicated to our homeowners and to the Logangate brand. We built a reputation for ourselves as an outstanding home-build company with homes all across the continental United States.
