Here are the types of log & timber frame homes we build
Custom Log Homes
From large and dramatic to cozy and luxurious cabins, every Confederation log home and its owners enjoy the same attention to all the little details that make a custom home perfect for you. The perimeter or shell walls are log on the inside. The other walls in the house can be wood cladding or drywall for a more contemporary look. We’ll help you hit just the right design note in our design studio - part our Total Log & Timber Frame Package.
Custom Timber Frame
There’s no denying the wow factor of timber frame. A true timber frame home is a “structural timber frame” home and is also known as post-and-beam or post-and-plates. It’s structural because the log posts that meet the timber beams overhead and connect to the roof truss actually support the house. It provides a skeleton for the home and then walls are built inside of this structure. It’s essentially a house within a house. This means the perimeter walls on the inside of the house could be log or drywall. And the exterior of your home could be a mix of stone and logs.
Log Homes with Timber Frame accents
This is a cost effective way to get all the wow of timber frame. Exterior or interior, we can help you integrate decorative timber frame to suit your budget. Put our experience and expertise to work for you … get the wow within your budget!
Choose from a selection of log profiles
8 x 12 Square Log
6 x 12 Square Log
8 x 12 Double D Log
Confederation log homes are built with milled double tongue and groove logs in two sizes: 6x12 and 8x12. Planed logs make it easy to hang artwork, cabinets, mirrors and provides a clean look inside and out. We can also provide a D-log - flat on the inside, rounded on the outside, or a double D log. We take our logs seriously - learn why not all logs are equal.
We use precision milling techniques to ensure our logs overlap and lock tightly together to create an airtight log shell. Combined with three seals on every log, it creates a home so energy efficient we were granted the first ever Energy Star rating for a log home.
We build so much more than homes including cottages, boat houses, additions to existing homes, garages, gazebos and commercial and retail buildings. We can design and build anything!
We ship our log homes all over the world!
