Log homes built
with passion

At Caledonia Log Homes we are passionate about our craft and proud to be Scotlands premierlog home builder.

We are a dedicated team of professionals striving to build the finest log homes and log cabins with exceptional Scottish timber. An architecturally inspired design and build company, we take immense pride in what we build.

Our team of log builders tirelessly perfect our log work and finished builds. We are very proud to hand-source fantastic Scottish logs for our post and beam and full scribe log homes and log cabins. We cut and process our own timber to use throughout the builds using our own sawmill, keeping as much of the build process in house as possible.

If it is your dream to live in a hand-crafted log home, it is our passion to build it.

Chris

Head builder / owner

Read biography
Christopher Houston is the founder and Head Log Builder of Caledonia Log Homes Ltd. Chris graduated from Sheffield University in 2004 with a BA in American Studies, after which he followed his lifelong interest of working with wood. He initially fell in love with log home building while playing rugby in Canada and decided to pursue it as a career. Chris attended the well respected ‘Okanagan School of Log Building’ in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada run by Del Radomske the renowned North American log home builder and pioneer of modern day log building through the ‘overscribe’ technique. After completing the course he worked for White Valley Log Homes at the foot of the Selkirk Mountain range, interior B.C. gaining fantastic knowledge in specialist aspects of log building including roof systems, trusses, stair building, milling and post and beam construction.

Chris felt that the best way for him to truly understand the industry and craft was to travel and work for different companies and with different builders, which he has actively done by working on various projects in France, Austria and New Zealand. Chris has gathered a wealth of expertise and building knowledge and has greatly enjoyed learning from some of the top builders in the industry.

In late 2010, Chris felt sufficiently skilled and knowledgeable to set up his own business and returned to Scotland to do so. In 2011 Caledonia Log Homes was born. Chris loves finding and using beautiful home grown Scottish timber. He has trained a dedicated team of professional log home builders, creating amazing buildings that will stand not only the test of time but are equal in every way to what top Canadian companies can do.

A laid back attitude masks a fierce determination and drive to make Caledonia Log Homes the finest builders of log structures in the UK.

Another lifer, Stu has been with us from the start. He has seen us grow from our small yard, a Peaugeot 306 estate and a couple of log benches to our current large scale projects, designing and building bespoke log homes across the UK.

Stu has an incredible eye for detail, a canny cutting hand and exceptionally high joinery standards.

Slightly mad, he is also a brilliant tonic especially during freezing wet roof fit outs in the wilds of Scotland.
