Hybrid Log and Timber Home Floor Plan Ideas
M.T.N Design, PrecisionCraft’s respected design firm, focuses on the design of custom mountain style homes and has designed award-winning hybrid floor plans, such as the Washington Harbor, pictured to the left.
Of the more than 65 floor plan concepts displayed on our site, many were conceived as log & timber hybrid plans. Those which were not drawn as hybrid log homes can easily be customized to match your own product choice. For example, see a handcrafted plan redrawn as a hybrid log & timber home.

Structural Insulated Panels - or SIPs - are a great solution for the roof of your PrecisionCraft hybrid log and timber home. SIPs provide superior energy efficiency for cold climates common to mountain style home locations. For those building in areas which experience extreme heat, SIPs ensure limited energy loss, thus lower energy bills for running your cooling systems. Learn More
What is a Hybrid Log & Timber Home?
A log & timber frame hybrid home is one that includes both timber framing and either handcrafted or milled logs. For example, the hybrid log & timber home to the left uses a combination of timber trusses, braces and posts with square milled log walls.
At PrecisionCraft we offer two distinct types of hybrid homes; full log & timber hybrids and Mountain Accent™ homes. Mountain Accent™ homes are conventional stick frame homes that contain timber frame or log accents, thus providing the look of a mountain style home at a lower turnkey cost.
Constructing a True Hybrid Home
Combining log and timber frame elements in one design requires technologically sophisticated engineering. In order to create a design that uses log walls in conjunction with timber framing, your log walls must be able to stand on their own. Not all companies build log walls that are capable of this kind of modification.
At PrecisionCraft, we use our exclusive Houseal Non-Settling System™ when designing our milled log homes or handcrafted log homes. This technology provides the level of engineering required to design and build structurally sound log & timber hybrid homes.
