Handcrafted Log & Timber

All about Caribou Creek Log & Timber

Where did we come from?

Caribou Creek was started in 1989 as a family business that traces its roots four generations back to traditional barn building.

Caribou Creek was started in 1989 as a family business that traces its roots four generations back to traditional barn building.  While some of the tools and styles have changed since then, today’s homes are still rooted in the pride of craftsmen working with wood. Old fashioned values – honesty, integrity, and treating others as we would like to be treated ourselves – are core beliefs at Caribou Creek Log and Timber.

Since our beginnings we have delighted hundreds of clients with beautiful, expertly hand-crafted log and timber frame homes. Whether handcrafting a simple cabin or a large commercial structure, we believe that helping our customers achieve their vision with the very best log craftsmanship is an honor and our privilege

Briefly, what do we do?

We help people who love handcrafted wood create a home they love, and then we make it happen!

For most people thinking of building a log or timber home, once they have seen a handcrafted home, there is simply no other choice. Handcrafting a log home accents the unique, natural beauty and character of the individual log and timbers used, creating a home as unique as its owner. We fell in love with the beauty of wood many, many years ago and that’s why we believe truly handcrafted is the way to go.  

We create in any blend of styles, construction methods, and finishing options that you can think of — such as a log shell that allows traditional dry-wall interior walls or a roof system using log trusses. If it can be engineered, we can build it for you

Quality is one of our primary concern at Caribou Creek Log and Timber. We maintain quality control over every phase of construction, beginning with construction of your log home in our yard to delivery and reassembly on your building site. We build every home as if it was our own.

We strive to maintain our reputation of excellent craftsmanship. We are here to help you through every step of building your dream home, from the initial design phase all the way through the placing of the last log on your home.  We are even there for your contractor if he should need some technical assistance while adding the finishes to your home.

For a step-by-step guide on the process of building our handcrafted log or timber homes, please take a look at our Steps to Building guide.


At Caribou Creek Log and Timber, we value the wood that makes each of our homes unique and beautiful. We place an emphasis on being responsible stewards in the use of these natural resource.

Caribou Creek uses logs and timbers from well-managed and renewable forests. Once the raw materials arrive in our yard, we strive to utilize every piece to the greatest efficiency. Even scrap wood is put to valuable use as firewood.

We are looking forward to repurposing even small chips and bark soon with the purchase of a commercial chipper.
