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!

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.

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’ve built our stellar reputation by building the highest quality homes at fair and honest prices. We build your home wall panel by panel in our controlled factory setting. This allows for the highest quality construction and therefore a precision fit on the job site. The beauty of our pre-fab home is that 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. Many of our satisfied customers say because of this building method, their energy bills have been the lowest they’ve ever been!

Logangate Doesn’t just Build Homes: WE BUILD Dream Homes

To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeous timber home. I was watching a dream home episode on HGTV and everyone was ooohing and ahhhing at how breathtakingly beautiful the featured timber home was. I really believe that homeowners have their homes built with standard flat drywall ceilings because they simply don’t know their options. They just don’t know that a timber home can be built for about the same price!

Superior Walls has been the world leader in custom residential precast concrete foundation systems since 1981. Their product creates comfortable living space, not just basement space, while lowering energy costs. That’s why Superior Walls are in demand as the superior foundation for new custom homes.

How to Build On or Near a Flood Plain?

Does the sound of living incredibly close to water sound like paradise to you? If you crave this type of tranquil and serene living, then a stilt home, also known as a Piling home is for you. Simply speaking, a Piling home is a home that is built on raised piles that serve as a foundation for the home. The poles resemble stilts that the home sits securely on top of. This type of construction typically rests 10-12 feet off the ground to safely allow for high tide. The main reason a Piling home is built is to protect against flooding. These homes allow homeowners to feel as if they are on vacation all year round because they appear to almost hover over the water.
