About M-T-N Design

Authentic Log & Timber Materials


The beauty of your timber or log home starts with the materials selected for the project. PrecisionCraft enables our clients to create once-in-a-lifetime structures by fabricating the authentic handcrafted logs and detailed heavy timbers that were specifically designed for your custom timber or log home.

Our craftsmen hand-select every Douglas fir log to use in your home. We prepare the logs using various fabrication methods, including hand-peeling, machining and framing, to make sure each one is the correct size and has notches and drilled holes in the right places.

We also fabricate the energy-efficient components that complete the structural shell of your home, including Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) and Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs).


Quality Construction


As part of your integrated PrecisionCraft team, your project manager will oversee the construction of your home, from foundation to certificate of occupancy. Your project manager and M-T-N Designer, both of whom have a detailed understanding of our structural shell materials and construction, will work together to maintain design integrity of your custom timber or log home.

Your new home will feature streamlined construction with exceptional energy efficiency. Our craftsmen apply a series of techniques to create an energy-efficient home that offers both style and comfort throughout the year.

Our integrated products cover the:

  • Foundation, crawlspace and basement to support the timber or log structure.
  • Above-grade frames that meet or exceed engineering standards.
  • Roof structure with SIPs on top of the log beams for insulation.
  • Entire SIP envelope for timber frame and post and beam homes.
  • Mechanical system configured for energy efficiency.

Benefits of PrecisionCraft Custom-Built Log and Timber Homes

Our log and timber frame homes offer several benefits over other construction methods, including:

  • Structural durability: Compared to other building materials, timbers and logs are more durable and flexible. As the foundation of your home shifts, the logs and timbers will adjust accordingly without damaging the materials or compromising the frame’s integrity.
  • Customizable design: You can achieve practically any layout you desire with a timber frame or log home, whether you prefer an open-concept home or spacious rooms. Log and timber homes have strong, durable frames that can bear large loads. They can also stand alone without load-bearing walls in your interior layout, offering design flexibility throughout your space.
  • Energy efficiency: PrecisionCraft log and timber frame homes are some of the most energy-efficient homes, incorporating SIPs for the walls and roof.

Working with PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes as your custom home craftsmen offers advantages beyond the benefits of log and timber homes. You’ll have a dedicated project manager to keep your project running smoothly and ensure your custom log or timber home beautifully represents your design.
