You can still find them . . . they sit atop the ridges, in the hollows, and on the stream banks of our nation.  Like no planned or contrived monument could hope to, these 150-200 year old log structures salute that almost undefined and unique spirit that was, is, and always will be - America.  A log home reflects the soul: the sweat, blood, self-reliance, ingenuity, pride, and unbreakable commitment to doing what must be done.  We at Hearthstone build that same spirit, tradition, and pride into every home we create. 


Built using the Traditional Log Home System 
with 6x12 logs and half-dovetail notches.

At Hearthstone, we can respond to many different design ideas from our clients.  To get started, we begin with several standard building systems - which we then mix, match, and modify to suit our client's taste and budget.

Our log styles - Traditional, Timberwright®, 8" Random Stack, & The Bob Timberlake Log Home Collection - are shown below.

Traditional Log Home System
This cost-effective system generally features 6"x12" logs up to 40 feet in length.  We can alter the hewing look, the chinking gap, the dovetail corner type, edge chamfering, log thickness, and other details to get 
different looks for different tastes & budgets.

(Offered only in our Traditional and Timberwright® building systems.)

Timberwright® Log Home System
This system features 14" tall logs in various widths 
(usually 6" or 8") with a very heavy, irregular edge chamfer 
that mimics the irregular shaped logs of the old log homes.
Once again, we can alter the hewing look, the chinking gap, 
the dovetail corner type, the edge chamfering, log thickness, and 
other details to achieve different visual effects..

Bob Timberlake® Log Home System
These homes are truly stunning masterpieces of permanent  folk architecture.  They are our Designer Series and have been developed in partnership with world-famous artist and designer, Bob Timberlake.  They feature extensive timber framing and massive logs (14"-24" in height).  The logs are naturally contoured on the top and bottom (at the chink joint) ,
but hewn flat on the sides - as they were 200 years ago.
