Big Smiles

How to pick a company and contractor to build your home......what a challenge!

After nearly two years working with Artisan Log and Timber Homes, I know I never signed a contract and come to think of it, I don’t think we even shook hands, once I gave him the go ahead. However we have our dream home almost complete that exceeds all our expectations based on trust.

Josh Littler, our General Contractor from Artisan Log Homes  has an amazing talent for working with people. He has a team of trades that take pride in their work and enjoy what they do; key ingredients on any project. Custom homes demand a great deal of innovation and problem solving, Josh thrives in these settings. He has an incredible eye for design and fabrication and takes pride in a job well done.

I would highly recommend Artisan Log and Timber Homes for any project you have in mind. They are a company with history, imagination and talent. You can trust their team of skilled folks. our Big smiles grow each time we drive up to our new home.The only problem is we may have to hire someone to talk to all the people coming by with compliments and wanting to know more about it.

As a young Greek lad once said, ‘ It’s #$@@!!^ orgasmic!”

Zero Damage

On September 13th 2008, Hurricane Ike tore through our home town of Santa Fe Texas.  The 110 mph winds leveled our property blowing over 78 trees, 3 power poles and knocking out power and telephone for 13 days!  Our log house built by Artisan, took it like a battleship, there was zero damage to our house and our post and beam garage.  Thank you Artisan for building us an indestructible house and a safe haven for our family.

Children’s Ranch

Artisan has worked on many log home construction projects located at our Children's ranch.  The post and beam Chalet is an amazing fixture at our camp.  We highly recommended Artisan to undertake any log or timber project you can dream of.  They are a pleasure to work with.

Exceeded Expectations

Dear Josh and Jordan,

We would like to thank you and the whole Artisan crew for helping to build our dream home. The large diameter Western Red Cedar logs are absolutely stunning and the five finger family tree is a real conversation piece. It is obvious that much care and thought were taken in choosing the many character logs throughout the home.

When Josh, George and Mikey came out to reassemble the log package, we were impressed with the knowledge, workmanship and care that were shown. We had a lot of fun working together that week.

Before we chose a builder we spent many hours researching and visiting log home companies throughout BC and in the end were very happy that we teamed up with Artisan Custom Log Homes for our Post & Beam project. You exceeded our expectations in quality and workmanship. Thanks guys!

Craftsmanship and Artistry

The guys at Artisan Logs Homes were absolutely fantastic to work with. Cam and I felt cared about and listened to from beginning to end of our project. We have been very impressed with the craftsmanship and artistry of our little log post and beam home! Everything from the carving treatment on the logs, to the precision of the mortise and tenon joinery, to the finer details of our aesthetic needs. We wanted a smaller house with a completely open floor plan, so feature details were very important. The guys at Artisan built a very cool staircase with beautiful feature railings that answered the aesthetic need perfectly! The most common statement that people make about our little house is that it is a piece of art.


Great Big Thank You to Artisan Log Homes!

Surpassed Expectations

Working with Artisan Log Homes has been a pleasure. It is hard to choose a builder/ designer however when we met this talented family we knew right away that this family was the right fit for our family build. The features of our Post and Beam log home surpassed any of our expectations. The experience of picking some of our logs was exceptional and with the Artisan families imagination we couldn’t be happier. The family and crew were always supportive and responsive before, during and after our build.


We highly recommend Artisan Log Homes!

Impressive and Beautiful

Josh answered our questions quickly and informatively and recommended an architect to draw up the Post & Beam plans that we had a great experience with.
Even though we were 1600 miles from Josh and never met him or saw their log yard, through written and spoken communication and sharing of pictures of the active process, we had a high level of comfort with his business to proceed with a staged plan.  Josh communicated well, staging the payments and process to mitigate risk, and sending pictures and regular phone calls describing each step.

Once the structure was complete, he and George flew to Arizona and assembled it over the course of three days.  They worked quickly and effectively. Over a course of seven months from interest to built structure, not only are we elated with the product as impressive and beautiful,  but the experience of working with Artisan Log and Timber Homes has been pleasurable and we'd happily recommend them to anyone interested in building a log home.

Dreams into Reality

We reached out to Artisan when we first started thinking about building a log home. The Artisan team helped turn our dreams into reality by answering all our questions, listening carefully to our wishes and connecting us with the right professionals. It was amazing visiting their office and residences in Mission and touring the log yard before our project got underway. Artisan delivered our logs on time and exactly on budget. Watching our log home take shape was one of the most amazing experiences of our lives! Their professionalism, attention to detail, and personable nature ensure that we'd be their ambassadors, and their friends, for the years to come. Thanks to everyone on the Artisan team for helping to make our dreams come true!

Making a Statement

Artisan Log Homes supplied and installed the log frame, rafters, roof framing and floor framing for our Rotary Interpretive Centre at Derek Doubleday Arboretum in Langley. They went above and beyond to ensure the project turned out beautifully. Josh and co were amazing to work with and it was clear they genuinely cared about the quality of the building, both aesthetically and functionally.

We threw a pretty aggressive timeline at them and they delivered. 10 out of 10, I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Our Dream Lake Home

We initially chose Artisan log and timber frame homes in 2018 to design and manufacture our timber frame home for two reasons. Firstly, we valued and appreciated their commitment to their community through donations, fundraisers, and expertise. We wanted to hire someone who understood the value of giving back. Secondly, their work was highly recommended throughout the city and beyond. 

 However, we were totally unprepared for the amazing experience we embarked on in the months that followed. The knowledge, expertise, care, and passion for the log and timber frame industry was evident from day one. Every notch, every measurement was honed to precision.  

 With our own limited frame of reference, we offered their timber designer wide latitude to explore his creativity and the results were stunning. The unique touches peppered throughout the home, inside and out, shaped our dream lake house with an artistry and intuitiveness that was reflective of who we are and our vision.
