The log post and beam home is a hybrid of traditional log structures and standard stick framing, combining the best of both. The owner gets the look and strength of a log building without the maintenance and settling issues of a standard full log home. The spaces between the logs are well insulated framed walls with typical interior and exterior finishes allowing the owner to customize those spaces to their liking.

Travis became a good friend during the construction of my home and remains a good friend today. I could always trust him to give me a straight forward honest answer. He is a very talented finish carpenter as well as a dedicated and reliable project manager, a combination that’s hard to find.
