Natural Element Log Homes

The Greatest on Earth…

Time and trends mean nothing to the perennial beauty of log homes.  The most basic of construction, yet the most dynamic of structures, log homes are a favorite of those people who long for simple comfort and beautiful design.  Hand-crafted or milled logs of eastern white pine or other species are used with the utmost precision to create a home that uniquely fits your personality and lifestyle.

Many Americans have a love affair with log homes. Perhaps it’s because these unique homes are a big part of our national heritage. Can you imagine what the early American pioneers must have thought about all that beautiful timber? Perhaps the renewability of logs also plays a part in the mass appeal to Americans. Just think where we would be if we had not had these valuable resources to build our nation with. And think where we will be if we ever fail to manage these resources properly.

Natural Element Homes’ founder is a degreed and certified forester, and Natural Element Homes will always practice responsible, sustainable forestry and will only do business with like-minded mills and land holders. With these practices in place, Natural Element® Log Homes will be around forever, for your kids and mine! Please note that all Natural Elements® are either RECLAIMED, RECYCLED, RECOVERED, or RENEWABLE.

Natural Element Log Homes are the superior choice…

Styles & Options


A log home features solid logs for its perimeter structural walls. The walls of a log home are its most distinguishing feature, and Natural Element Homes offers a wide variety of log styles, cuts, finishes, and corner joinery. Our most widely chosen specie for logs is Eastern White Pine, but we also offer Western Red Cedar, Cypress, Southern Yellow Pine, and more. We also provide a pre-cut log wall system with logs cut-to-length, numbered and lettered to fit together with ease. We offer three methods of corner joinery, such as dovetail corners, saddle-notch corners, and butt-and-pass corners. And our pre-cut log wall systems come with a lifetime limited warranty that is transferable for up to 10 years should you choose to sell your home.

Natural Element Interiors


The way your home is decorated is one of the most important things about it.  The rooms of your home should engage your emotions and lift your spirits, but such great spaces don’t just happen.  Some people have a knack for putting rooms together in a way that is not only pleasing to the eye but also functional.  It seems so easy when you experience a well decorated home, but most people cannot pull everything together to make this happen.

Natural Element Interiors is devoted to properly decorating the spaces of your home based on scale and proportion, balance, rhythm, emphasis and harmony.  We consider space, line, shape and mass, textures, light, color and pattern.  We use our knowledge and experience in these areas to make your home comfortable, beautiful and functional.

Natural Element Interiors offers a physical store for elements, accessories and resources to use in your decorating.  We also offer interior design services and consultation to help you enhance your style, solve problems, prevent costly mistakes, and simplify your life as you decorate your home.

Sometimes all you might need is a few hours of consultation and advice, and we offer consultation services to discuss furniture placement, colors, textures, function and a lot more.  You’ll likely be amazed at what we can accomplish together in just a few hours.  We can help you pull it all together and make your home a place that touches your very soul.

Any Plan… The Way You Want It!


Our Virtual Design Center allows you to collaborate at every step of the design process and immediately view the effects of any design changes you’re considering. You view your plans online and speak directly with your designer as you watch your changes being made onscreen in real time. Next you’ll be able to view a 3-D model of your altered floor plan, and you can take a virtual “tour” of your redesigned house to see just how it will look and feel.

The best part is you don’t have to operate any software; just sit back and watch as your dreams and ideas move a step closer to reality. Check out the demo video here!

Let’s get started…today!

Today is the Day!

There are several considerations when choosing a log home company to work with, but none are more important than the culture of the company. Our culture is one of effectiveness, honesty, innovation, and quality. We are different. We don’t just provide great log homes, we provide great experiences in planning, designing and building your home of homes, so feel free to dream. Our ultimate goal is for you to tell your friends and family that we did a great job for you. At Natural Element Homes, we choose to do the following:

  • Follow a strict code of ethics
  • Grade our logs and timbers to ensure quality
  • Provide a construction manual for clients and builders to illustrate proper construction techniques
  • Provide innovative ideas to log building technologies
  • Provide free information and advice to make smart choices

But we don’t stop here. We have never been satisfied to simply follow the group of log home companies. We much prefer to lead the way, and we do. You are probably like us, and you want your log home to not be just like everyone else’s. If so, we may be perfect for each other. People who choose a Natural Element Home want something different, a home that is a notch above the usual cookie-cutter design and reflects their taste and lifestyle. We help you create a home that is uniquely you. Our customers have the need for a pleasurable, stress-free experience that is comprehensive in nature (everything needed — not just bits and pieces). We are truly a one-stop-shop and either provide or facilitate everything needed to build a new home. We have in-house design services, log and timber manufacturing facilities, and a network of builders covering the USA. We also facilitate site planners, interior designers, lighting professionals, financing options, solar and geothermal professionals, landscape architecture, and green building standards. Everything you need is under our roof!
