The Hybrid Log Home

“Square timbers and round logs collide”

For as long as we can remember, most of our clients wanted either traditionally built custom log home, using large diameter round logs or a Timber Frame, and over-sized square timbers. Both share similarities such as strength, warmth and the sense of peace and nature. However, once we get past the similarities, their differences start to appear. Traditional custom log homes are built using stacked horizontal logs, round posts and beams, with all wall logs hand scribed and cut to fit one on top of each other. All perimeter walls are log, while the interior walls are usually a combination of logs and framed walls. There is wood everywhere you look.

The Timber Frame super structure is than in-filled or framed around using conventional framing methods.
