Log Homes and So Much More

Log Homes and So Much More!

It is true that at Sitka Log Homes we build custom log homes and timber frame homes but that is not all we do. We also enjoy the opportunity to get creative with our clients, helping  them to design and then build all kinds of unique log and timber products.

We are often asked to build log or timber mantles, staircases, picnic tables, gazebo's, gate entrances etc. These small projects are often done when our house building schedule is slower allowing our crews more time to fully use their creativity while enjoying a calmer pace.

Here are a few smaller projects we have created over the years:

ranch entry

timber carport

log and timber bench

town sign (giant ax)
log and timber table under pergola
log gazebo
picnic table
custom log mantle
log and timber pergola display
entry post cluster

Picnic table
timber gazebo
steel banded timber truss and posts
 log spiral staircase
unique log stair feature

town of Valemount entry

The Log House at Roaring River Ranch - Feature Home

Atop a hill overlooking the acreage and river below, this impressive log home offers numerous top quality features and breathtaking panoramic views ringed by snow capped mountains. Built in 2008, this beautiful custom log home features Sitka Log Home's design and construction. With three levels, the floor plan offers plenty of room with over 3750 square feet. The most striking features are the massive handcrafted pine log beams and framing found throughout the home with incredible views out every window. The spacious open living area offers knotty hickory flooring, a cozy three-sided natural rock fireplace, floor to cathedral ceiling windows and a log railed staircases. The kitchen features custom stunning concrete counters, knotty alder cabinets, a large island with a six-burner range and of course, windows with magnificent views. The Master bedroom, with its own cozy wood stove and well-designed master bath, is also found on the main level. The upper level offers two very large bedrooms, each with a bath and a loft area. One of the bedrooms is currently being used as an office. The bottom level offers a recreation area featuring a one-of-a-kind custom wet bar made with hand hewn wood and an entertainment area with a pull-down television screen.

Wrapping the home are spacious decks designed for outdoor enjoyment. State of the art technology is found throughout the home including broadband wireless internet. Outside the home and overlooking the valley is a stunning and beautiful in-ground gunite pool and hot tub. Designed with a vanishing edge, very few pools offer the incredible views that this one does.
