Authentic Log Homes
You can still find them . . . they sit atop the ridges, in the hollows, and on the stream banks of our nation. Like no planned or contrived monument could hope to, these 150-200 year old log structures salute that almost undefinable and unique spirit that was, is, and always will be – America. A log home reflects the soul: the sweat, blood, self-reliance, ingenuity, pride, and unbreakable commitment to doing what must be done. We at Hearthstone build that same spirit, tradition, and pride into every home we create.
At Hearthstone, we can respond to many different design ideas from our clients. To get started, we begin with several standard building systems – which we then mix, match, and modify to suit our client’s taste and budget.
Some of the styles that are chosen the most are:
The Hearthstone Traditional Log Home System
This original Hearthstone system features 12″ tall logs in widths beginning at 6″ and up to 40′ in length. We can alter the hewing look, the chinking gap, the dovetail corner type, edge chamfering, log thickness, and other details to get
different looks for different tastes & budgets.
The Hearthstone Timberwright® Log Home System
This system features 14″ tall logs in various widths (usually 6″ or 8″) with a very heavy, irregular edge chamfer
that mimics the irregular shaped logs of the old log homes. Once again, we can alter the hewing look, the chinking gap,
the dovetail corner type, the edge chamfering, log thickness, and other details to achieve different visual effects.
The Hearthstone Timberlake Log Home System
These homes are truly stunning masterpieces of permanent folk architecture. They are our Designer Series and have been developed in partnership with world-famous artist and designer, Bob Timberlake. They feature extensive timber framing and massive logs (14″-24″ in height). The logs are naturally contoured on the top and bottom (at the chink joint) , but hewn flat on the sides – as they were 200 years ago.
