After visiting their parent’s home land in the late 70’s, an enthused couple asked us to build them a European style cottage. Inspired by the combination of stone, log and timbers, the couple took advantage of our Thermal-Log™ Building System
since it could incorporate the necessary design options they sought. By integrating our handcrafted wood products (including both log and thick timbers) with natural stone work, we were able to achieve the timeless architectural style the owners desired.
It didn’t take long for custom homebuyers to understand that our versatile, innovative building system gave them the ability to create a true hybrid style home
to accommodate their personal style and needs. The flexibility of Wisconsin Log Homes Thermal-Log system allows clients every where to enjoy an extensive range of architectural styles. But most importantly, they have the freedom to select and combine the unique building products they want to create their very own dream home.
Today, the industry calls these homes that combine various materials and design styles “hybrid,” but we’ve always called it “design freedom” that allows us to better service each and every one of our homeowners. My wife, Kathy, and I never wanted to limit our homeowners’ dream to just one product like log. Product selection and integration - whether log, timber, stone, glass, shakes, drywall, or any other building materials imaginable - is a normal step in our custom design process
… and a step that clients really enjoy and take advantage of.
