Your Imagination, Without Limitation


Edgewood – Perfect Will Have To Do.

Edgewood designs and builds custom log homes that are nothing short of exceptional. Our industry-leading innovations in log home architectural design and engineering and our commitment to superior master craftsmanship distinguishes our work as a custom home builder and visionary leader in log and timber construction.

Over 30 years ago when I founded Edgewood, I held the vision of creating a company at which thinking outside the box was not only allowed, but also encouraged. We’ve done some pretty incredible projects- from small pioneer log cabins on a remote island in Japan, to extraordinary 24,000 square foot lakeside custom log/timber homes, to huge alpine log homes in a commercial setting at 10,000-foot elevation in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. All of this work was challenging and rewarding, however, I am now focusing on building just a few select custom built homes and interesting projects each year, one at a time.

Over the years, clients have asked us to expand our scope of work, and everything to which we have applied our expertise has gone extremely well. That’s why I’ve decided to take an approach with Edgewood that is unique in the log building industry. We are the only company to require that on each and every project we accept, we will provide the design and the custom log/material package; and we will deliver and assemble on-site – no exceptions. This work is done with precision and creativity, on time, and on budget.

Why am I taking this integrated approach? Because after 30 years of performing all of these tasks individually, I have come to the conclusion that this is truly the only way to be sure that your project is a complete success. This singular focus frees the design and construction process from the constraints of what I call the “manufacturing mindset,” which concerns itself not with meeting the client’s needs, but with production goals, selling pre-designed log home packages, and a constant effort to revise client expectations to fit within a pre-defined, repetitious “cookie-cutter” mold.

Edgewood’s architects and craftsmen are encouraged to experiment and offer their input, a process that ultimately delivers a truly one-of-a-kind project for each and every client we work with. It is only through this freedom that truly inspired architecture and the first-of-their-kind innovations for which Edgewood is known come to fruition.
