Some of the most talked-about log homes out there are built by this Idaho home building company called Edgewood. It’s a 30-year-old company founded by a fellow named Brian Schafer.
The company sets itself apart, in part, by only building a few log home projects each year, and each one is built from start to finish before starting the next one. They “encourage thinking outside of the box” when it comes to design.
They are also the only company, according to Schafer, that requires that the custom log home building company itself provides the designs, the log and other building materials, and that they will deliver the structure and assemble it on site.
Because of their long and varied experience (Japanese island cabins, 24,000 custom lakeside houses, cabins at 10,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains), combined with their task-by-task approach, they can complete a log home build on time, on budget, and with precision.
This is the opposite of another building method we frequently blog about here at Building Homes and Living: prefab. Not quite the absolute opposite, but somewhere near. Everything Edgewood does is custom and specific, while the prefab mindset wants some things to be taken care of in a prefabricated way.
