Log & Timber Homes

Yellowstone Log Homes has one of the largest inventories of house logs in the world.

Idaho’s arid climate contributes to their reputation for having the driest house logs in the industry. Their logs come from standing dead timber or are air-dried to ensure a low moisture content. When a log is truly dry there is much lower chance of settling, unexpected cracking and twisting compared to those homes built out of kiln-dried or green logs. Many of their customers come back years later and report having little to no settling of their homes.

With more than fifty years of experience, Yellowstone Log Homes proudly maintains its reputation for providing the nation’s highest quality house logs.
