Gastineau Log Homes has been a pioneer in the log home industry, leading the way in eco-friendly living long before it became a widespread objective. Our commitment to sustainability is rooted in our construction methods, which use log home techniques that lower carbon footprints compared to conventional building materials. By using live timber in our construction, we not only ensure the isolation of carbon but also contribute to reduced carbon emissions. Additionally, the durability of log homes means they can last for centuries, surpassing the lifespan of typical construction methods.

Our approach is a variety of wood species including oak, cedar, pine, and cypress. This selection not only offers a range of structural choices but also demonstrates our dedication to environmental responsibility. Each log home is designed to blend seamlessly into its natural surroundings, creating a relationship with the environment.

A unique aspect of Gastineau Log Home’s eco-friendly practice is our use of solar kilns for drying lumber. Unlike other companies in the industry, Gastineau Log Homes exclusively uses this technique, which significantly reduces our energy consumption and minimizes our environmental impact. This method demonstrates our commitment to sustainable practices and focuses on long-term resource conservation and reducing ecological footprints.

Gastineau Log Homes doesn’t just build homes; we are at the forefront of working towards sustainable living in the log home industry. Our focus on energy efficiency, sustainable material sourcing, and innovative construction methods sets us apart. In supporting these methods, we uphold the health of our environment and set a high standard for what modern log homes can achieve in terms of environmental control.
