Living in the Northwest, a region surrounded by beautiful mountain forests, many choose to bring the look of the outdoors inside when it comes to the design of their homes. Wood accents look striking as exposed beams or fireplace mantels. Though they specialize in beautiful custom log homes, Caribou Creek Log Homes in Bonners Ferry is ready to help make your vision come true, no matter the project big or small.
Those who are already in their dream homes but are looking at an update or addition to their home can also utilize the beauty of wood in many ways. Caribou Creek can create custom wood staircases, rustic log and timber siding, entries and gates, decorative wood beams, or create a detached garage or outbuilding, just to name a few. Creativity and customization is something that the builders and design team at Caribou Creek Log Homes are happy to include in all their builds. In the 30 years since opening its doors, Caribou Creek has created hundreds of unique structures—everything from estates, multi-level log homes and cabins to timber-framed homes and eye-catching commercial buildings.
“Quality and value is the reason 75 percent of our business comes from customer referrals,” says David Byler, president and owner.
For those who have always dreamed of a log home, Caribou Creek is ready for any challenge. David and his co-owners, son Darin, who serves as general manager, and son-in-law Ken Shrock, project manager, approach each job as if they were building their very own home. The team will sit down and go through the process with you. Clients can bring their own floor plans or ideas or can sample from previous builds and projects Caribou Creek has completed. Whether you’re starting from scratch or have your entire home thought out, Caribou Creek can make it happen.
“Traditional craftsmanship and old-fashioned work ethic turn exceptional designs into works of unsurpassed warmth and quality,” says David.
Timber from sustainably managed forests is always utilized, and even the leftover cuts are used in creative ways. Caribou Creek is the only log home company to fully kiln dry logs and timbers to reduce settling. In addition to that measure, they offer a superior non-settling design that many homeowners appreciate years later. Homes are assembled at the facility to maximize quality control. Once complete, each piece is marked as the home is disassembled and shipped to its final destination. Crews then put the home back together like a giant puzzle and finish the final touches on-site.
Caribou Creek does not offer pre-built kits because every house they craft is a custom creation inspired by the customer’s dream. Log homes are an iconic symbol of mountain living, and Caribou Creek is passionate about continuing to build timeless log structures that satisfy so many life-long dreams.
In addition to building beautifully handcrafted log homes, Caribou Creek has a local log home restoration division that has brought numerous log structures back to life. Only Local Farmers Market in Sagle, Idaho, is a great example of one of Caribous Creek’s restoration projects. “Our restoration team is available to travel upward of 50 miles from Bonners Ferry to refinish log structures in our community,” says David. “Whether your structure is suffering from log rot, stain deterioration or lack of chinking, our team can save your back—and your house!”
