Green Building for a
Sustainable Future

Jack Frost Log Works’ unique handcrafted homes utilize Green Building methods and materials. From lot selection and site preparation through the design and development process, we focus on sustainability and efficient use of resources. Our logging, excavation and site preparation methods allow us to save trees and optimize natural features.

Orienting houses for passive solar/wind considerations saves on energy costs and reduce the carbon footprints of our buildings.  We source our logs locally and minimize transportation costs. Our log building techniques use the whole log and greatly reduce waste.

Our energy efficient designs include modern heating and insulation methods, thermally efficient windows, and water saving technologies. These avoid damaging chemicals and enhance indoor air quality.

Jack Frost Log Works builds quality homes that are not just aesthetically beautiful, but also lower utility bills, increase comfort, improve health, and protect the environment.
