Overlook Log Homes

 Gastineau Log Homes was one of the first companies to go beyond a basic log home package to offer customers a very complete structural package. Today customers can choose from several log home kits to get the one best suited to their needs. Our Log Wall Plus includes the basic logs and beams and necessary fasteners and sealants. Our Traditional package provides materials necessary to complete a dried-in shell. Our Deluxe package is one of the most complete log home packages available. All Gastineau log home kits include design services, blueprints and materials list as well as our exclusive Quality Assurance Visit. In addition to standard package components, we offer a variety of options to enhance and customize your log home. plus, one of our Building Smart™ Construction Seminars can provide you with the skills to tackle general contracting or constructing your own Gastineau log home.

Any of our log home packages is also available as a "No hassle" kit. These are  packages that contain no design changes from our standard catalog blueprints. If you see one of our plans that you like and don’t anticipate making modifications to the blueprints, a No Hassle Package can save you money. Ask one of our sales representatives for details.

If you prefer not to have solid log walls, we offer Therma-log, insulated log wall packages. Our Therma-log system consists of a tongue and groove half log applied to conventional wall framing. Therma-log houses do not require any special construction methods to allow for settling and allow you the flexibility to cover the inside of exterior walls with something other than log.

We offer our log home packages in several configurations that are explained here.
