In order to build your perfect dream home, you will need to spend some time thinking about your lifestyle and your current home. Take a look at the home you currently have. What do you like about it? What do you dislike about it? Use a notebook to keep up with all of the things that you want in a cedar log home. Consider what you want the home for, too. Whether you are building a primary home, a second home or a vacation rental, all of this information will help with creating the right plan.

In order to build your new home, you will have to locate and purchase the right piece of land. Keep in mind that the style of your new home will need to complement the land that you choose. In order to make sure your home and your land work together perfectly, we will need to evaluate the space. This way, we can plan and orient your home to make maximum use of views, sun exposure and natural beauty. Additionally, once you have chosen your land, we will be able to determine zoning details that could have an effect on the home you want to build.

We were fortunate to find Aaron Dunn (Big Twig Homes) as the primary contractor to coordinate the construction. [...] This decision would become the backbone of the successful construction of our home. Not only was the construction timely but the contractors selected were of the highest quality. [...] All of the finish work performed by the carpenters in the interior of the house was nothing less than cabinetmakers quality. All of the joints and fits on the interior walls with no exaggeration were precision fits showing the attention to detail and high standard that they invested into their entire project."
