Industry Innovator

Gastineau Log Homes was one of the first companies to go beyond a basic log home kit to offer customers a very complete structural package. Today customers can choose from several log home kits to get the one best suited to their needs. Our Log Wall Plus includes the basic logs and beams and necessary fasteners and sealants. Our Traditional package provides materials necessary to complete a dried-in shell. Our Deluxe package is one of the most complete log home packages available.

Full Service Design and Consultation

All Gastineau log home kits include design services, blueprints and materials list as well as our exclusive Quality Assurance Visit. In addition to standard package components, we offer a variety of options to enhance and customize your log home. plus, one of our Building Smart™ Construction Seminars can provide you with the skills to tackle general contracting or constructing your own Gastineau log home.

Save Money with A No Hassle Kit

Any of our log home kits are also available as a “No hassle” kit. These are packages that contain no design changes from our standard catalog blueprints. If you see one of our plans that you like and don’t anticipate making modifications to the blueprints, a No Hassle Package can save you money. Ask one of our sales representatives for details.

Greater Flexibility with Therma-log

If you prefer not to have solid log walls, we offer Therma-log, insulated log wall packages. Our Therma-log system consists of a tongue and groove half log applied to conventional wall framing. Therma-log houses do not require any special construction methods to allow for settling and allow you the flexibility to cover the inside of exterior walls with something other than log.
