Enjoy the look and feel of your new Prefab Timber Home

We spend more time in our homes than most any place. Make a statement and enjoy the beauty of a rustic timber home by Logangate Timber Frame Homes. Our timber frame cabin kits allow for expansive vaulted rooms with the warmth of douglas fir timbers. Most timber companies use lessor 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 ceilings are entirely Douglas fir creating a dramatic and beautiful environment. Douglas Fir is not only beautiful, but it is also the strongest softwood available. Strength and Beauty – what a combination for your Timber Frame Home!

Cantilevered Home

Cantilevered Home

Difficult terrain can be challenging to build on. 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 unique Cantilevered Home but you also can enjoy the beauty of a Timber Frame Home. We offer Classic and Contemporary Pedestal home and Timber frame kits to accommodate anyone’s style and taste as well as offer 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.

Logangate Timber Homes is a Hybrid Timber Home company. We stick build the walls and pre-install the windows all in our plant, that process is call 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.

What is a Chalet House?

A chalet home, also commonly referred to as a Swiss Chalet house, is a style of home architecture common in the Alpine region of Europe. A chalet-style home is typically made of timber and includes a gently sloping roof and overhanging eaves. The overhanging eaves are great for providing protection from the elements and rough weather as well as providing a beautiful architectural style. Swiss Chalet homes were introduced to the United States in the mid-1800s by architect Andrew Jackson Downing. Because of their mid-European roots, these homes are fantastic choices for mountainside residences or fit for any other uneven landmass. The design is frequently used for vacation homes but is fantastic for year-round living as well.

Benefits of Chalet Homes 

There are numerous benefits to owning a chalet house. The house’s fairly simplistic construction with basic materials and an uncomplicated design means chalet houses can be built more affordably than homes of a similar size. The floor plans are very flexible with plenty of opportunities for customization with the overhanging eaves, windows, and exposed architecture. Common unique features that can be added to a chalet home are carved rafters and ornamental shingles. Chalet homes come in numerous sizes as well, depending on your needs. Our traditional chalet home floor plans start at 600 square feet but can go up to 4000 square feet with the addition of a single wing or two wings to construct a Grand Chalet home. Chalet homes typically have a lot of windows that allow for copious amounts of natural light and a beautiful view of your surroundings. Due to the A-frame design, the ceilings in Chalet Homes are very high with a lot of open space for an open and cozy home. Chalet homes offer a very sleek and elegant aesthetic while maintaining the warmth and coziness of a Timber Home.

4 Advantages of Post and Beam Construction

No matter which new building methods are in style at the time, nothing can quite compare to the sturdy and stylish designs of a post and beam home. Post and beam construction utilizes high-grade, heavy timbers to create long-lasting, age-resistant homes with beautiful spacious interiors. This construction method can be traced back to ancient times but will never go out of style thanks to all of the benefits it provides.

Sprawling Interior Space

Home designs that utilize cheaper materials have to rely on a large number of structural support columns. This is not so with post and beam home designs. Thanks to the use of those sturdy, high-grade heavy timbers, post and beam houses are able to spread out the structural supports, allowing for more living space in your home. And since this means there aren’t any load-bearing walls, the floor plan can be just about anything you want it to be. Section off your floor plan however you’d like without worrying about its structural integrity.

Efficient Construction

Because of the relatively simple design of post and beam homes, construction time may be greatly reduced in comparison to other construction methods. When used in conjunction with our pre-built panel systems, post and beam construction can go by quite quickly, letting you move into your custom dream home faster than ever. Our panelized home kits use pre-cut, sanded, and numbered Douglas Fir rafters, allowing for faster build times and virtually no waste or mistakes on the job site. 


Long-Lasting

Post and beam construction has been world-renowned for its strength since its inception. Notoriously hard to destroy, post and beam houses are often the only ones still standing after natural disasters, with some post and beam homes from the middle ages still retaining their structural integrity to this day. 

Many modern construction methods utilize treated lumber in combination with other weak materials as they’re only expected to be lived in for roughly 40 years. This is in stark contrast to reliable post and beam methods which only use the best materials that are expected to last at least 100 years.

Natural Beauty

With their exposed beams and cut timber, post and beam homes are built around their natural beauty. Nothing can compare to the warmth and comfort you’ll feel inside your post and beam home. The wooden exteriors of post and beam houses also let your home blend seamlessly into the natural environment around it, allowing it to become part of the landscape. 

At Logangate, we use incredibly strong and gorgeous Douglas Fir Timbers which are pre-cut and sanded and are very rare east of Mississippi. We use these timbers because of their incomparable strength and their stunning beauty.

Post and beam construction also respects nature itself by reducing the waste commonly associated with new construction, and by avoiding the use of chemically treated materials. Logangate is also committed to ensuring that your post and beam home is energy efficient. Our in-house Green Building Team constantly studies the industry looking for new technologies and better methods of green building and will work with you to ensure you get the most efficient, durable home possible.
