Student Log Homes
An octagon log home being built by two students back in the early 1970′s. What a neat design!
We are excited to announce a new exceptional log home award has been issued to our good friend and Association member Pam (“pinecone pam” on the forums). The craftsmanship (craftswomanship?) is superb. This log home is very large and impressive, and it blends in well with her meticulous landscaping. It has absolute top notch features […]
A really great smaller home, built next to a lake in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
A majestic log home, standing tall in a stand of tall Douglas Fir trees. A country estate that almost forces one to relax, slow down a bit, and enjoy life. A really well built home that has served this family well for decades.
This is the home built by one of the operator of a great hunting and fishing guide service. It’s the best ‘home base’ you could have. John did a fantastic job building his log home hunting lodge.
Students Woody and Robbi built this gorgeous log home after they retired. This is both their retirement home, and a facility for their ministry outreach work. They spend a lot of time helping with the rehabilitation and reintegration of recently released prisoners and at risk youth.
After a student built and sold this home, subsequent owners put on not just one, but two separate additions. The result is a very nice 2 story log home with first floor square footage and feel of a ranch style rambler.
Two friends who worked at a pizza restaurant jump tracks and start building log homes for profit. This is their very first attempt. They sent us this note: Dear Skip, I just thought I’d send you a couple of pictures of our finished house. We listed it for sale last week, and there has been interest in […]
A sprawling log mansion with an awesome three story log tower. It also has some great outbuildings and parked out grounds. The builder took out class in the late 1960′s, and built this impressive home in the early 1970′s. Currently this home is part of the investment portfolio of a well known, and very talented, music […]
A charming log home with southwest style. Stucco, flagstone tile and tasteful decor.
Patrick built a wonderful 2 story log home on a full basement. He incorporated some cool timber frame elements on the interior. This home was built near a ski resort, and generates weekend rental income for the builder. Congrats to Patrick for a well planned log home endeavor!
The log home that Larry built. The sale of this home funded Larry’s attendance in a traditional Chinese medical college (in China!).
This beautiful log home is nestled between the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. Built in 2004, it’s the newest recipient of our Exceptional Log Home Award. We think you’ll enjoy the pictures of this awesome log home. A neat fact about this home is that the builders John and Jenalla actually met each other while attending our log […]
Built in the early 1980′s, this log home sits on tranquil Tiger Lake. It’s a shaded peaceful oasis, with it’s own dock. This home is for sale and you can see the listing here.
This is a really cool log home. Our member erected the entire shell in 5 weeks after attending our 2-day class, and he was working entirely alone. A great build, with a very affordable budget (built for $60k, sold for about $500k).
Recently one of our student’s homes earned an environmental award in Washington State. This home is an excellent example of green building, with it’s green roof, solar water heat, grey water drain, protected forest land, et cetera. The home, landscaping and surrounding environment are all part of a great example of eco-living. Congratulations to Mike on having his home […]
A home that any child would simply love to grow up in. Neat features like a full theater room, plus an indoor slide.
A classic Skip style butt and pass log home nestled in the woods. More than enough space for a family, and it’s the kind of rural setting/lifestyle that is really conducive to raising a family.
A stunning suburban home near Seattle. According to the owner/builder, this home was built for about the same amount as the average price of a car one might find in their neighborhood. An beautiful, home, built for the price of a car, is really an amazing accomplishment.
We had two students build this fantastic B&B complex in Canada. They built several log cabins as individual rentals and their target clientele are nature lovers, hikers, hunters, fishermen, and folks who generally just like relaxing in a natural outdoor paradise (while sleeping at night in style and comfort).
A simply stunning log lodge used as the base for a fishing and hunting guide service.
An awesome log home nestled amongst the Pine trees. This is a spacious 2 story log home with a loft. It has a very clean modern interior and is very tastefully decorated. It’s a fantastic looking home.
