Mark Camper has over 20 years of experience with PrecisionCraft which he uses to guide clients through our unique home building process.

“Thoughts of California often turn to big cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, but locations like the Sierra Nevadas, Lake Tahoe and Mammoth inspire our clients to build amazing mountain style homes. These favorite retreat areas offer some of the best country to build log and timber homes.”

California Hot Spots: Perfect for Log Homes & Timber Frame Homes

Mammoth Lakes

An adventurer's paradise, the Mammoth Lakes area has it all. Fishing, skiing, hiking and biking. A vast wilderness can be found right outside your log home door.

Lake Tahoe

Fans of the North Shore and South Shore alike can agree that building your custom log home or timber frame home here utilizes all of what Tahoe provides.


Whether you prefer a log home amongst the pines of the Sierra Nevadas or a timber frame home on Donner Lake, Truckee is an ideal build location. View our Truckee Log Home Plan inspired by this California jewel.

Wofford Heights

Located in the Central Valley, Wofford Heights is close to Lake Isabella and the historic Kern River. A popular area for log homes, retirement homes and vacation property, Wofford Heights might be a perfect fit for your custom mountain style home.

Grass Valley

Amongst the Sierra Nevada foothills and near the Yuba River is scenic Grass Valley. At 2,000 feet above sea level, the climate is milder than nearby Tahoe but close enough to visit.

San Clemente

Located halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles, San Clemente has a small town atmosphere and hidden hills in which to build your luxury log home or timber frame home.
