About Expedition Log Homes

Expedition Log Homes is proud to offer authentic hand-crafted logs combined with energy efficient hybrid building systems (R-25 to R-36 and above) to give you the best of both worlds for your log home. Unlike the wood shapers used by many mills, our manufacturing method takes advantage of the natural character and contour of the tree. Logs are debarked, kiln-dried and then handcrafted with a drawknife. Expedition logs are graded in compliance with the Log Homes Council (NAHB) grading standards. Many corner styles are hand-scribed and pre-fit for ease in construction providing you with the rustic beauty that only handcrafting logs will give you. If your taste is more towards timber products or the precision fit of milled (or shaped) logs, we do that too. Our energy efficient hybrid building system can incorporate any variety of building materials including stone, stucco, shakes, timber and logs to make your home truly unique.

An unwavering commitment to quality is one of the first things that you will notice upon meeting an Expedition employee, field representative or homeowner. It's a common bond that we all share. Our role is that of a seasoned guide to thoroughly understand your project and to work as a partner with you throughout the process. At Expedition, we realize that each individual has unique design needs. That's why every Expedition log home floor plan is custom designed and tailor-made to your specifications. Whether it's a full log structure or an insulated building system, Expedition is here to serve your custom design needs. We take as much care in designing your one-of-a-kind home, as we do in creating the logs for it. As added quality assurance, all Expedition construction plans are reviewed and sealed by a licensed structural engineer.

Let us help you create a log home that sustains both your place of refuge and our planet. When it comes to designing and producing your log home package, we won't compromise on quality and performance. You shouldn't either.

At Expedition Log Homes, we realize that each individual has unique design needs.

That's why every Expedition log home floor plan is custom designed and tailor-made to your specifications. We'll show you how to adjust any design style to meet your individual taste and budget.

The first step in designing your personal retreat is to examine the function of your home. We carefully take notice of the desired locations for activity zones; places for sleeping, working, eating and living. If you have already purchased your land, we help you determine what direction has the best view. Knowing which rooms need to take advantage of the view will help you layout the footprint of your home.

Having a design professional guide you will make the journey more rewarding.
