It’s hard to make a great pot of chili with lousy ground beef. It’s also hard to build a great log home without the best logs and people that know how to turn logs into a home. Hiawatha Log Homes come from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where the trees are straight, craftsmanship legendary and winters a bit more than hardy. The majority of our logs come from the Hiawatha National Forest where there’s been ongoing and very successful forest management and replanting since the 1940’s. The soil conditions make for very straight and uniform logs, with disease resistant qualities.
It’s the best logs, precision-tuned machinery, operators that know how to use it, a staff that’s been designing dreams for many years, it’s all of that and more that make the Hiawatha Difference.
Our Forests - Our Future
Forests are truly remarkable natural resources.
They provide countless benefits for our lives - from clean water and air,
to medicines and paper products, fantastic recreational opportunities,
and yes, materials with which we can create homes for our families,
now and in the future.
