M.T.N. Design

We know the value of great design and understand that the best log and timber homes are those which start with an amazing vision. Our commitment to architectural excellence is reflected in our award-winning design team, M.T.N Design. During the last twenty years, M.T.N has built a reputation for designing our industry's most spectacular homes, and is dedicated to helping each of our clients realize their vision.

Design Process

option 1:
custom design

M.T.N will create an original design based on your layout requirements, photos, sketches, unique build site, budget and vision.

Our dedicated team of degreed professionals has decades of combined experience and the proven creative talent to bring your vision to life.

option 2:
modify a plan

Use one or more of the design concepts in our floor plan gallery to inspire your own home.

Think of these concepts as starting points for your initial design meeting. Work one-on-one with your M.T.N designer to modify the plan(s) to fit your unique needs, budget and build site.

Awards and Recognition

M.T.N Design has been repeatedly recognized for our creative designs by the editors of home magazines, their readers, the National Association of Home Builders and others. Each award we receive is a validation of our hard work and dedication to creating amazing homes.

The most gratifying recognition, however; will always come from clients who tell us how much they love their homes. Our primary goal is to make your dream of building a custom log home or timber home a special experience that your family can enjoy for years to come.
