Log and Timber Frame Homes
Each Confederation home is bespoke and hand-finished — a craft we’re keeping alive in an era of mass home production.
Our goal is for your log or timber frame home to look as stunning in 100 years as it does this year. Making homes that last is part of our commitment to sustainability.
For over 40 years, we’ve been a green company. It has always been important for us to show it, not just say it. So, we earned third-party accreditations.
First, we use sustainably forested white pines — a renewable resource. For every log taken, six more are planted.
Our logs are made from the core, but we sell the cut-offs to marinas for boat blocks, and the smaller pieces to campers for firewood.
Even the sawdust is given to a farmer for mulch. (And by the way, that farmer’s grandson is now a Confederation craftsman in our shop, saw-cutting logs.)
Nothing is wasted.
Instead of kiln-drying our carefully selected logs, we naturally air dry the logs over time. This is a zero carbon footprint process that also yields the finest finished logs.
We’ve been building this way for 40+ years because we love the environment, too. That’s why we live in nature ourselves.
Some of our customers choose to be entirely off-the-grid, and a Confederation home can support that lifestyle.
