At Highlands Log Structures, Inc. we specialize in handcrafting. Our basic package includes log work and re-erection crew only. If it is not a log, then it is not included. Log work from home to home may vary, depending upon the requirements of the homeowner. Log shells vary due to the client's specifications. Choose from a variety of options to make your shell unique.
Log accent pieces add a great deal of character to any home. Mountain style homes are on the rise with the use of dramatic timbers and conventional materials. Log roof systems and character logs help to accent those areas where you want to put the most emphasis in your home without the full log construction. Basements, garages and second story home area can really benefit from log accents. It helps to tie the home together and add a flair of nature without the cost of a full log structure.
Timberframe, and Post and Beam
Post and Beam Structures are the answer to those who want the stability and structure of a log dwelling but prefer to have the flexibility of conventional materials throughout the entire home. Many other post and beam structures such as pavilions, pool houses, and outdoor entertainment areas are becoming increasingly more popular. These types of structures can allow you to extend areas to great lengths and widths without the settlement commonly found in full log structures.

After finally looking at many completed homes of different manufactures, we had chosen Highlands Log Structures Inc. Their expertise and personal approach was outstanding throughout all phases of planning and construction. The workmanship and the final finished product has made us very proud log home owners."

"Winston and his architect were able to create for us an incredible structure delighting all of our guests the moment they turn into our driveway. We can't thank him enough for his continued help and support for all the questions we have ever had. Full size log homes are amazing buildings, and they fit well in the character of our lodge in the wooded mountains of our community. Highland Log Structures Inc. has to be one of the best log home businesses anywhere in the US."
"We always dreamed about building a log home and on our travels to visit Nashville, we would often drive by the Highlands Log Structures' model home in Abingdon, VA. After meeting with Highlands, we began building our log home in nearby Bluff City, TN. The house is almost completed and we are very pleased that we chose this family-owned business to create the perfect home for us. The Johnson's and their crew of skilled craftsmen are a very hardworking an fun-loving team, and we highly recommend this wonderful business to anyone looking to build their dream log home."
