handcrafted log homes
Nothing compares to the beauty and artistry of an authentic handcrafted log home. Each log is individually selected, hand cut and intricately placed using our Houseal Non-Settling System™. The unmistakable look of a handcrafted log home brings to mind historic lodges and rustic landscapes of the old west. A PrecisionCraft handcrafted log home is designed to look as if it were centuries old and built to last generations.

building a handcrafted log home
Log home fabrication
- Hand-peeling of each log is done with a drawknife.
- Each log is cut to fit exactly in the space needed, with a chainsaw, chisel or ax.
- The house is pre-assembled log by log in our lot in Idaho.
- Once stacked, the logs are pre-drilled for the Houseal Non-settling System™, which will be installed at the job site.
- The home is disassembled, and loaded onto trucks for transport.
- The same crew who assembled your home in our lot will travel to your build site and install your log structure.
- Once the home is complete, stain and chinking will be added to seal your home.
