“Best in the West” Homestead began manufacturing and building log homes in Oregon in 1978 and has been an industry leader in hand-crafted construction, since. If you want big logs from the Pacific Northwest, at the best price and the highest quality craftsmanship, look no further.
At Homestead we offer six log profiles in three different diameters, all built with saddle-notched, shrink-to-fit corners, steel through-bolts and timber fasteners. Our newest profile is a sawn flat interior face with round exterior corners. We transition the face under the corner, where you can’t see it. We offer Scribe-fit 2-sided, Scribe-fit 3-sided, Full round with chinking, Scandinavian chinkless, Swedish cope and 4-sided Timbered.
We operate as a manufacturer and builder to pre-assemble each log shell in a covered facility, sand, tag and Borate treat the home before being dis-assembled, unitized and paper wrapped. We offer our customers the best pricing because there are no dealers or middlemen. We have built a network of general contractors that will present turn-key bids across the Western U.S.
Past clients include Sylvester Stallone, James Brolin, Patrick Duffy, Patrick Warburton and Clint Eastwood. Our plan book has 35 models, pricing and materials breakdowns. It is now on sale for $5.00 including postage.
