Yellowstone Log Homes LLC
Yellowstone Log Homes is America's log home manufacturer. We are a family owned and operated business that has been manufacturing quality log homes since 1962. We have shipped more than 10,000 log homes to satisfied log home customers making us one of the worlds largest log home companies. We are able to sell to our customers at an affordable price because we purchase entire timber sales rather than individual loads of logs like most other companies. The huge selection at Yellowstone Log Homes of dry house logs also enables us to pick the best logs for our customers. Our logs are TPI grade stamped, and are cut either from standing dead timbers, or logs which have been naturally dried for up to 5 years. Because of the dryness of our logs, our customers experience very little if any settling after the logs are erected. We offer milled swedish cope wall logs, tongue-and-groove D-logs, full scribe handcrafted homes, and chink style handcrafted homes.
We also offer an in-house design department to draw your custom log home blue prints, or if you prefer we can modify one of the existing plans from our plan book. We have a brand new plan book available for only $10. Our plan book is free to licensed contractors, postage is additional. Yellowstone Log Homes sells through a nationwide network of dealers. Contact our office in Rigby, Idaho for the dealer nearest you. Dealerships are still available in many area.
