What We Do

We offer the Swedish cope method and chinked style methods of building with round logs. We can also provide the log-work for your Post and Beam project. We also build in the dovetail style with 8 X 12 or 6 X 10 square beams. Exterior corner lengths can also be varied to add more rustic uniqueness. We build with Western Red Cedar, Lodgepole Pine, Douglas Fir, and Spruce. Commonly our log cabin/log home material diameters are 14+ inches, but can build with larger upon request. At True Log Homes here in Idaho, we are able to source our logs from dead standing trees and well managed, sustainable forests. Our efficient process of hand-choosing each log keeps waste to a minimum.

Each log is hand-peeled, scribed, and fitted here in our log yard, with no visible splices in your log walls. All knots, scrapes and abrasions are hand-planed and sanded flush with log surface. The window and door openings are cut to rough opening as per plans. The walls are pre-drilled for the electrical wiring. The log package includes log walls, any second floor log joists and log porch supports included in blueprints, log ridge pole, log purlins or log rafter all sized according to plans.

  • log railing materials,
  • half-logs or 3-inch thick treads for stairs,
