Log Homes

Building your dreams one log at a time.Lukcik's Log Homes is completely a custom log home builder. We never use pre-built kits or mass produce our log structures. We specialize in custom handcrafting our homes. All our log homes are different due to the requirements of the customer. At Lukcik's Log Homes we believe you should be able to to make a decision based on facts. We help you understand all the costs so you can make a decision you will be comfortable with, "No Surprises!" Based on an initial discussion, we can give you a preliminary estimate. Data collected over the the years is used to approximate the cost per square foot. Once you make a decision to go ahead, a blueprint with specifics is drawn.


Your project will then be broken into 10 or more stages. Each stage is estimated and explained fully.

When your blueprint is done, you will receive a materials list and labor cost for each stage. With this information in hand, you can easily compare cost.

It's to your advantage to use a quality builder who will work with you to ensure your satisfaction throughout the building process. We customize each relationship at Lukcik's Log Homes. You may want us to handle some or all of the work. Since we ship anywhere, you may want to subcontract the work locally. We'll work with you either way.
