If your childhood was spent in the last millennia, you may have learned about a log home while reading Little House in the Big Woods, the first book by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Unless you are a fan of high-rise living, or you are a confirmed apartment dweller, you are probably either living in a single-family home, or want to. Most of us dream of building a home someday, either as our primary residence, or as a second or vacation home to share with our extended family.
As a company, Pine Harbor Log Homes is far more than merely a log home builder. We are a multi-generation family of master log home craftsmen. We have tremendous respect for the traditional methods and materials used in our work and for the families we’ve served over the 75 years and three generations we have practiced our craft.
Coming home to a log home is to open the door to a warm, inviting and natural environment—a place of such sheer beauty it takes your breath away and instantly conveys feelings of peace and relaxation. If this is your idea of “home”, consider a Pine Harbor log home.
No matter the time of year, a log home is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of real life. We visited with one of our clients in Iowa and they helped us understand why they decided on a custom-built log home. Their dream was to retire in a log home, while also being able to enjoy life with their family, grandkids and friends.
Whether your log home or cabin is your permanent residence or a weekend retreat, you need it to be aware of log home security. It doesn’t matter where you live, what type of home you live in, or who you are – no one is immune to home invasions, to the tune of at least 2 million homes a year in the USA.
We listen very closely to you so that our custom home design and build process ensures that we are working with you to design and build a home that reflects the way you live. Pine Harbor Log Homes brings the experience and artistry of three generations of skilled craftsmen to design and build your custom log home. There’s no substitute for experience.
Log homes are anything but boring. But, we’ve found a few rustic log cabin homes that make us want to leave our comfortable city homes and escape to the wide open country. Sometimes these cabins are simple – but beautiful in their basic charm. At other times, it is a study in rustic elegance. Read, dream and maybe even book a vacation to check out these beauties!
Owning a log home is sometimes described as living the dream. There is something about being in a log cabin or home that instantly makes you feel at home. Choosing a log home lifestyle is more than just choosing your next house; it is truly a life choice.
Have you dreamed of lounging on a big fluffy rug or a comfy recliner in front of a blazing warm fireplace? Do you imagine yourself having a cozy, beautiful place to retreat from the cares and stresses of everyday life?
