We are fanatics about using dry house logs to build stable, strong log homes. Dead-Standing timber, with its great insulating properties, provides us with the perfect building material. With dry timber we are assured less shrinkage, less settling, less movement, less problems, and freight costs are lower per unit because our trucks have less water and more wood!
The Satterwhite Family is “all in” with this family business and preparing for our third generation to work hard for you. We have employees and crews who have served our customers for 20, 30, even 40 years. Some of our employees are second and third generation.
From Forest to Job Site
We are able to offer mill-direct pricing because it’s Satterwhite from forest to job site. You are buying from the timber company, logger, sawmill, lumberyard, and builder, all in one!
Quality products require the highest quality raw materials. Unlike most log home companies who use locally convenient materials, Satterwhite has searched the entire North American continent seeking wood with exact characteristics.
The log home industry is notorious for endless debates about wood species. But one huge factor is a constant, regardless of tree type, and that is moisture content. The simple fact is that living trees have high water content, and that the dimensions of wood change dramatically as it dries after being cut.By using dead standing timber, Satterwhite Logs are “pre-shrunk” all the way to the core. “Kiln-Dried” or “Air-Dried” logs are dry how deep?
How fortunate we were to have come across Satterwhite Log Homes to help us build our future retirement home! The quality of the building materials, friendliness of staff, and detailed information provided from beginning to end was extremely important to us.
We’re very proud of the natural beauty of the spruce logs, cedar deck posts, aspen wood ceilings, hewn beams, and cedar mantels to mention a few. Their assistance in tweaking their existing plans allowed us to personalize and ultimately end up with a true custom log home.
Thank you to everyone at Satterwhite Log Homes for helping us turn our dream home into a reality! You will always be highly recommended by us.
“For us, this kind of testimonial says if ALL?
The construction process was seamless and their cooperation/coordination with our builder Matthew Witt facilitated an excellent experience. I was also impressed with the transparency and thorough way Satterwhite’s personnel interacted with all parties involved in our project.
Without reservations I can recommend the Satterwhite Log Home to anyone interested in first rate products and professional well trained personnel.
