More than 40 years of construction history, tradition and integrity is engrained in the team at Timber Block. Timber Block’s parent company was established as a family business in 1977. Success thrived on customer satisfaction, and today, customer satisfaction remains our number one goal.
Timber Block homes can be built virtually anywhere. The building system allows for walls to be assembled in a controlled environment. Timber Block’s panelized, stacked and insulated product is the future of building. Together with the Holmes Approved Homes program, we are building quality log homes together.
In 1999, Timber Block realized the potential for improving both the insulation value and reduction in construction time with the log home market, and began working to perfect a proprietary idea to realize these improvements. After 7 years of research and development, Timber Block’s innovative technology was ready for marketization. Hundreds of log homes later, Timber Block continues to deliver quality log homes and in the process, has created many log home owners who have enjoyed their Timber Block homes for years.

Timber Block’s patented system delivers a more ecological and environmentally sustainable product, combined with an insulation value of R-30, unheard of in traditional log homes and certainly well beyond the R-value of the majority of residential projects built today.
During the manufacturing process, each 7” high, variable width section is injected with a closed cell polyurethane insulation. And because this is done indoors at the Timber Block factory, the process is controlled and not affected by humidity or the weather.
Why is energy efficiency important? It’s simple. Energy efficiency saves the homeowners money and contributes to healthy indoor air quality (with an efficient air exchange system).
