All of our custom log homes are built from natural logs, and all logs are fully scribe-fitted to each other. All our log home shells are handmade, and the notches and grooves are scribed and cut by craftsmen, not by machines.

That's why we call ourselves "Natural Log Homes" -- Our homes are 100% natural and made by hand.

Our home designs vary in size and complexity, and we always uphold the highest standards of quality and artistic craftsmanship that homeowners have come to expect from us for a quarter of a century.

We are passionate about providing our customers with log home shells that are unsurpassed in quality, value, environmental awareness, ease of ownership, design, and appearance. We invite you to read on and learn more about Natural Log Homes and the benefits we can offer you.

We ship our log home shell kit sets throughout New Zealand, Oceania, Europe, Japan and the USA. Other locations are also invited . . . please contact us so we can help you.

"When we purchased a block of land in the mountains at Castle Hill we considered a number of construction methods, but decided on a log cabin after meeting with Graeme and his team at Natural Log Homes. From concepts, through to architectural drawings and eventually to on site assembly we were guided by their artisan approach and passion for log homes. Throughout the project they performed to the very highest professional standards with no surprises and the end result is superb. We would not hesitate in recommending Natural Log Homes if you were to consider log construction."
