We Are A Log Home Builder

Great Room showcasing Scandinavian Full Scribe log home building method

Old Style Log Works, Inc. specializes in custom designed, handcrafted Scandinavian Full Scribe and Chink Style log homes. We started building log homes more than 25 years ago, and have spent that time perfecting our craft.

  • We work alongside your design team to provide the log-work portion of your project.

  • We offer design ideas for your log home plans.

  • We do not mass produce our projects. Instead, each individual project is designed, cut and scribed to meet your unique projects specifications.

Maintaining the Highest Building Standards

We take full responsibility of our homes and do not use middleman dealers or distributors – you're working directly with us, the builder, on your project. Our excellent reputation with general contractors nationwide is evident as they come back to us time and time again.

Log Home Living, Log Home Design Ideas and Log Homes Illustrated magazines have featured our work on several occasions, and our homes have graced their covers numerous times over the years. These feature articles reflect our customers' pride and satisfaction with their log home, and offer a crowning event at the completion of your home if you're interested.

Quality Materials

Old Style Log Works Inc. uses Lodgepole Pine, Englemann Spruce and Western Larch logs depending on your log home plans. The logs come in full lengths each with their own distinct color and characteristics, with no cost difference between the species.

The Spruce and Larch have 14"-16" butt diameters and the Lodgepole, 12"-14". Larger diameters are also available upon request with ample lead time. Timber Products Inspection grading service is also available.

Handcrafted Detail

We are log builders utilizing tested and perfected handcrafted log home building methods. For our log wall work, Old Style uses the Scandinavian Full Scribe style with very shallow rounded copes that tightly fit the contours of the log course below. Foam Gasketing is then inserted into these copes during the reassembly. Shrink fit, saddle notch style corners create tight fitting corners even after the home has settled; the test of true quality.

Old Style also offers the Chink method where great care is taken in keeping the log courses close together for a minimal and uniform chink line. Exposed Log trusses using scribe fit joinery, log purlins and log rafters are the typical roof support structure elements.
