Laverty Log Homes & Timber Frames

As your Ontario Log Home & Timber Frame builder, we pursue excellence. As handcrafters, there is nothing automated about our process. We only use hand tools to shape logs and heavy timber, often hewing timbers as it has been done for centuries in Europe.

Laverty Log Homes offers log & timber construction services for any type of project, from building custom log or heavy timber, cottages, homes and lodges including dovetails, shrink fit saddle notches, round log or squared timbers.

Whatever your needs, we are able to deliver the highest quality in wood joinery. Laverty Log Homes is a member in good standing of the International Log Builders™ Association (ILBA).

At Laverty Log Homes, we believe that the soul of a log home or timber home comes from the care spent creating as if we are crafting a piece of art.

Our log homes are engineered with a special double gasket system inside the wooden joinery to prevent drafts or water infiltration. We do not use fibreglass.

We excel at complex open timber/log roof systems including, trusses, valleys, heavy purlins and rafters. We use authentic wood joinery in our homes.

Our timber frames are cut from white pine, douglas fir or oak. We also have used hardwoods like cherry or walnut to really make a statement, contrasting blonde pine frames with bold colour.
