Montana Native Chip Ashcraft of Silver Star, Montana has over twenty three years experience as a log home and cabin builder. He has built private residences from North Carolina to Montana using the tradiitional scribe fitted method in his building process. Each handcrafted log cabin is created from lodge pole pine or Douglas fir which is then individually scribed, notched and then fitted into position. This gives the building optimal strength, much more strength than you would find in a pre-fabricated log cabin package.

Custom Designed Scribe Fitted Log Cabins & Homes

Because of a quality called "thermal mass," well-built, fully scribed log homes in many situations are about 20-30% more energy efficient, in terms of heating and cooling, than normal frame buildings. Log cabins also have the benefit of working especially well with radiant heating systems. Radiant systems kick up zero dust and have been shown to reduce the amount of mold and mites infesting a home. Ashcraft Log Homes of Silver Star, Montana has designed log cabins for movie stars that retreat to the great Montana wild each year. If you've ever dreamed of having a custom log home or perhaps a vacation cabin, Chip Ashcraft of Ashcraft Logs can help you plan, design and build. Prices are currently starting at $60K.
