Tamarack Log and Timber Homes Inc. is pleased to show everyone our latest project from our native white oak. This is not for the faint of heart as this material is very costly but our client in Kentucky wanted the best rot free material for his guest cabin built in the traditional style. It is being shipped later this month and we are sad to see it go from our site. Built for a lifetime of enjoyment! What do you think?

I would like to build a log home in Wilson County, TN. I'm considering using Nature Built/Curt Woodall Construction. Is anyone currently using them or have you recently used them? How would you rate your experience.
Richmond has been a bit mad lately. If it weren't for the VCU and UR games being played on Friday night, I'm not sure how much work would be getting done on the cabin. We were sad to see the University of Richmond knocked out of the Sweet Sixteen since we were looking forward to giving them a shellacking on Sunday, but VCU's stunning run has more than made up for it -- its…Continue

Well, all the ceilings are hung. All the interior walls are hung. Everything was cleaned/sanded and stained. The log walls got one coat of stain, and the interior walls we coated twice. We noticed the log walls were a much warmer color, so we tried…Continue
I am looking for the metal art sculpture on the mantel in the aug 2010 issue, page 62. The cabin belongs to the Amdahls and is a summer lake home. I have searched the internet and found others but not like this one, so this is my last resort before I settle for something else.
Thanks for any help given,

The rain came down hard this week, which means the James River is a torrent. Richmond has class IV rapids, unusual in an urban environment. We don't like to pull corpses out of the river and wrap them in plastic, so most people heed the warnings about how dangerous the water can be at this time.

Nothing stops true Finns (nor me as a German living in Finland) to built their dream cabin even in temperatures around -20 degrees Celsius. Even that the cold weather and some incoming snow slowed down the log frame assembly a little, the frame of Villa Linnea was standing after 5 working days.
After laying a layer of tar-paper and and a layer of insulation material, the 4 person building crew assembled the first row of logs. After the first row was adjusted and hammered into place…Continue
