Custom Log Home Designers & Builders

Lifestyles crafted in Cedar

Your Inspiration, Our Craftsmanship

Town + Country Cedar Homes transforms ideas into custom homes

Whether it's a luxury custom log home or a handcrafted timber home, a contemporary mountain architectural marvel or a Thoreau log cabin in the woods—it's your new home. But, as a toes-in-the-sand stroll on the beach or a mountain trail hike with almost endless vistas reminds us—it’s not just the destination, but also the journey that is important.

Back to the Grind

Work-at-home spaces

Wasn’t it Tim McGraw who sang something about “Six lanes, tail lights. Red ants marching into the night. Disappear to the left and right again…” That’s a snapshot of many weekend warriors’ Sunday nights, this, after retreating to the weekend home to “relax”, “unwind” and “decompress”. Contrary to what many believe to be sacrilege, this re-stressing after de-stressing is exactly why many of our clients have us design work spaces into their workweek getaways. Sundays become Fundays. Mondays become “workations” – Work in your pajamas. Have breakfast and coffee…at a table…with sunrise over the lake, rather than from a bag and a cup holder. Send reports to your wifi printer from a chase lounge, while sipping a Margarita (our idea of a “sweatshop”).

Retiring on the Water

When Bob and Julie Knode arrive at their retirement log home, they barely have to regain their sea legs. The couple spends four months out of the year sailing; the rest of the time they live in their beachfront log home on Lake Michigan.

Their 1.2-acre property was built on the site of a former girls’ camp and even boasts its own marina — a fitting locale for the seafaring couple. Town + Country Cedar Homes helped ensure that the 3,158-square-foot home that sits on the land is equally perfect for Bob and Julie’s shore-side lifestyle.
