This is a process that begins, and ends, with
nature. From concept to completion, we work with our hands to shape the materials of the
earth into a home that is uniquely yours. Naturally.
We start with only the finest logs, hand-picked in the Rocky Mountain forests from only
standing dead timber. The low moisture content of these trees will reduce shrinking and
log movement in your future home, plus, we don't have to damage the environment by killing
living trees. Timber is chosen for straightness, twist, smoothness and taper, then
hand-peeled at the log yard using the same old-fashioned draw-knives used by our ancestors
when building their own homes. Once the logs for your home have been carefully selected
and prepared, they are fitted together in a painstaking process of hand-scribing to ensure
the natural contours of each log will conform to one another smoothly. This done, saddle
notches are cut into each log, then finished with hand tools for a cabinet-tight fit.
