Thank you for everything, Timberhaven. Even on the worst of days, stepping into the great room takes all the stress away! Amazing!
Greg Massmann (local rep) is building our Timberhaven log home in Montevideo, Minnesota. We are just so impressed with this whole process and in complete amazement of how each log was so precisely cut. Thank you for your work on this and please pass this note of gratitude on to whomever had a part of planning and cutting our home.
Words cannot describe what an extraordinary Timberhaven log home I have! It is a Modified Aspen Hill built with Timberhaven’s 6×8 Engineered Logs with the Dovetail corner assembly. My log home is 2,180 square feet and features 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. A small mudroom connects my lovely log home to the 2-car attached garage. And in the basement, where my 10 parrots now reside, there is an additional kitchen, bathroom with walk-in-shower, and media room. My Timberhaven log home was completed in October 2018, and I moved in shortly thereafter. David Calder, my builder and master craftsman, did an incredible job on the construction of my dream log home.
As with all new construction, there were a few minor hiccups and a lot of rain delays. But, being patient paid off. I am in my new Timberhaven log home now, feeling very happy, safe and secure. Enjoying my morning coffee in the gorgeous sun room or outside under the covered front porch, watching the sunrise over the mountains is a great way to start the day. The flexibility that Timberhaven had given me with the design, made this the perfect log home to enjoy my ‘retirement’ years.
I highly recommend Timberhaven Log & Timber Homes as the designer and manufacturer for your dream log home. I also highly recommend David Calder if you’re considering building in the vicinity of Southeast Tennessee. Log homes are these folks’ passion, and I know they would just love to supply/build a log home for you, too. I am the second person in our small community to have one of Timberhaven’s beautiful log homes and couldn’t be more proud.

Thank you very much for help making our vision come to reality. My girlfriend told me the other day that she has never lived in a house that she absolutely loved and now she does.
Thank you for putting up with all my questions for such a small order. I work in Insides Sales in the steel business, so I appreciate good customer service — and yours is excellent!
As a customer of Timberhaven for our log house, then log-sided garage, and recently a timber frame pavilion, their customer service and log home products are superb and top notch. We couldn’t be happier.
Lynda, Thank you for all you do. You and your company are a class act. Every time I need something, you come through. I really appreciate all you do. Thanks again!
Our timber frame home is built with kiln-dried timbers that were pre-cut and pre-notched so that assembly onsite was seamless. It is amazing to look around and see the mortise and tenon joinery that is holding our house together, solidly and beautifully. The aging process and longevity of these timbers are the most stunning, in addition to abundant natural beauty it provides to our family now and for decades to come.
During the design process, we took our time to think about all scenarios. Perfection takes time, and we didn’t rush it. And we weren’t afraid to make changes. We encourage you to do the same.
As far as material selections, there were plenty of material package choices provided to us. If Timberhaven didn’t have what we were looking for, they easily found it or provided an alternative, similar option. Timberhaven also offered the most competitive pricing for our quality timber frame home package.
Ultimately, we have built our forever home to raise our three sons and could not have chosen a better, more beautiful house to fit our plan. We are more than happy with our Timberhaven timber frame home and look forward to it being part of our lives and future generations to come.
What a wonderful seminar and great group of workers/owners at Timberhaven. I love their energy, team spirit and commitment. We are really impressed with their manufacturing process and feel it’s the best in the industry. I’m going to continue to promote them and you (Ed & Kathy Higgins, NH reps) for the rest of my life. Thanks again for all the support and positive energy.
I have worked with Ben Pittman from Big Sky Log Homes on building many Timberhaven log houses – even before Timberhaven, Ben and I built Kuhns Brothers log homes for quite a while. The laminated (aka Engineered) log idea was probably one of the most ingenious engineering feats in the industry. The logs are much straighter, there are very few checks – if any at all – and they are a lot straighter which results in less fight to get the logs to line up and so on. One of the other things I have noticed that because the log are compressed under pressure, they seem to be harder which, in turn, when drilling holes for electrical, leaves a cleaner hole and less splintering at both ends. As a builder, this makes my job easier. I am hoping we get to build a few more Timberhaven log homes in the future.
