SINCE 1983

Old Style Log Works Has Over 35-Years Experience Building Handcrafted Log Homes

We are a log home builder based out of Kalispell, Montana, but our projects span across the state and the country.

We maintain a strong commitment to quality. We are not an assembly-line, mass-production unit. Instead, we offer personalized service and hold ourselves to the highest standard with each of our handcrafted log homes. We’re part of our small community in Western Montana and work hard to maintain our reputation for integrity, and take great pride in our craftsmanship.

We offer in-house design and construction drawings for the log elements of your project, and can offer referrals for architectural and engineering firms; we work closely with the rest of the overall construction team to identify the best methods for your unique building project.

With more than 200 log homes, lodges, and commercial projects under our belt, let us show you what we’re capable of creating.

Our custom built log homes feature traditional log home building styles.

We specialize in handcrafted log homes using:

Scandinavian Full Scribe methods
Traditional Chink Style methods

Our work includes:

Rustic Home Styles
Luxury Log Homes
Commercial Log Buildings
Log & Timber Elements for Conventionally Framed Structures

  • We really enjoyed getting to spend some additional time with you and Neal recently in South Fork, Colorado while you erected our log home. Cherri and I are extremely pleased with it. You and your crew are truly artists with logs... Thanks again for everything and best of luck to you in the future. You are more than welcome to add our name to the list of satisfied customers.

  • Thanks for everything. Everyone tells us how beautiful the house is and sure admire the logs. We are real pleased with it.

    Bill and Carol Yaak River, MT
  • One of our best decisions in construction of our home was choosing Old Style Log Works. We love the distinctive beauty of the whole logs and appreciate the professional commitment Old Style demonstrated in all aspect of design and construction.

  • I would like to tell you how totally satisfied I am with the log home shell you provided and erected for us on Flathead Lake in Montana. Your caring professionalism all through the planning and erection was the best. This is so important since our home was in Montana and we live in Minnesota. I am so happy with the quality of the log construction and the fit of the logs that I would heartily recommend your company to anyone wanting a log home.

    Hal Royalton, MN
  • When we finally decided to start our dream of building a log home in Montana, we knew it would be difficult doing it long distance while living in California. But from the very beginning, Old Style Log Works was a pleasure to work with. They made several suggestions to our plans that saved us money and worked with us every step of the way. We love the look and quality of our handcrafted logs.

    Mike and Candy Poway, CA
  • We must have had at least 100 people come to see the house. They are amazed at the workmanship and how tightly the logs fit together. I am impressed with everything about the house and how easy it is to heat in the mountains of Maine. All I have to say is, thank you for the outstanding job you did for us.

    Chuck Bingham, Maine
