Patriot builds for new Log home company in the UP

Patriot Log Home Builders erect 12 x 4 pine dove tail chinking log cabin/lodge in Upper Michigan 

      Warm, inviting, tradional log home kit buildt by Patriot Log Home builders. This is Patriots current project. Pariot has been subcontracted by a new company which offers something very unquie from other companies if it is the taste you are looking for. More old fashioned as these logs have the grooves cut in them for chinking. 
     What is chinking? Chinking is the broad white band you see inbetween  logs in the log stack. I gues you could say the walls look kinda striped.  Historically, chinking was used on  a log home to protect  wind  and icy cold from howling in between the spaces of the  logs. 

As the snow clouds roll in and evening approachs roof felting is finshed up
     Chinking has come a long ways since the inception of log homes. Modern chinking is designed to look like the old time mortar but is much more elastic.  For the most part you should have a Professional chinking contractor do this work as it is not easy and requires skill.

Back of house ! Impressive with walk out basement. deck will wrap around the whole house, the only way to go in my opinion...

This is the proch roof on the back, how lovely! great design... T & G wood makes a great place for sitting under on a rainy afternoon on your deck. This overlooks a great peice of land

This is the front of the house which at this stage does not really look at that impressive and really is deceiving in regards to its size. You need to see the back with its deck, which will extend around to the front...we are working on this project right now and expect it to be complete in a few more days
this is a lovely site to build a log home in the UP...the back is landscaped with large boulders

FIRST days , we scope the site...amazing that after 8 days we almost have a log home up!

Here is some of the shipment of the logs. Again these are 12 inches tall! with chinking grooves...what is chinking?  It is how the old fashioned log homes were made... for a modern distributor Click here

lets talk about the importance of a fork lift! don't let a log home company tell you that you don't need one to build your log home...which is commonly done with Sales people to take off a few dollars in your project. They are imperative to the crews safety and protect your logs.

Mike Hompertz and new crew build in the hills of TN

Call 608 547 4129 ask for Mike

Mike Hompertz of Patriot Log Home Builders went to the hills of TN to build a Coventry Log Home for homeowner pictured in center, Laura. The new crew that joined Mike is from TN as well. Great friendships were formed and Mike found kindred spirits with Andy and Tobby. Check out the videos of this great home.
IMPRESSIVE! Who would not love to have a ceiling like this to look up to ? large round beams set off the tongue and groove. admittedly this was no easy feet to build. but with an experienced team and dedication it can be done.

Covnetry Log Home in TN

Lovely home in Tn quality product from COVENTRY

I started to work with a new crew that lives in Tennessee was so refreshing ...that southern hospitality really is something, even in its toughest men. As I live in Wisconsin and work primarily in the Midwest and out East I can honestly say that personalities differ in regions. I enjoyed working on this home so much .

Finishing up full log pine Coventry Log Hom

Coventry log home in Carollton MO
Built in the months of Dec, Jan and completed  up in Feb during the polar vortex ! Ice cold conditions as far south as Mo. Below zero wind chills were common. Shorter days and taking off for Christmas delayed the construction of this large beautiful  home. Over 106 feet long it is true majesty.

Deload? Trusses for  attic garage so second floor can be added 
This is a rather fun shot, the outside tips on its side, and we have the grammar error on the trusses Deload, not unload. Roof is half completed , garage is framed. Patriot log Home builders will build your home in the winter months , you need your foundation however.
