About Us

Nestled against the Snowy Range Mountains in the Centennial Valley west of Laramie, Wyoming, Deerwood Log Homes specializes in custom built homes, log cabins, and commercial structures using traditional timber frame, post and beam, and conventional and hybrid log home construction.

Our goal at Deerwood is to handcraft custom designed homes specifically suited to the individual needs and desires of our customers.  By using the highest quality materials and expert craftsmanship, we will accommodate your wishes in constructing the home of your dreams at a reasonable cost.

We have been building custom homes since 1990 and some of the people on our staff have been here since the beginning of the company.  We have developed highly professional and well-trained crews that can take on anything you can imagine.

Our Unique View

This is a process that begins, and ends, with nature. From concept to completion, we work with our hands to shape the materials of the earth into a home that is uniquely yours. Naturally. We at Deerwood take our cues from nature to create a custom and unique log home that, like the trees with which we work, blends into its surroundings; one more unique piece of the eloquent whole.

We start with only the finest logs, hand-picked in the Rocky Mountain forests from only standing dead timber. The low moisture content of these trees will reduce shrinking and log movement in your future home, plus, we are environmental friendly by only harvesting standing dead trees. Timber is chosen for straightness, twist, smoothness and taper, then hand-peeled at the log yard using the same old-fashioned draw-knives used by our ancestors when building their own homes.

Once the logs for your home have been carefully selected and prepared, they are fitted together in a painstaking process of hand-scribing to ensure the natural contours of each log will conform to one another smoothly. This done, saddle notches are cut into each log, then finished with hand tools for a cabinet-tight fit.

History & Traditions of Excellence

The idea of a custom-designed, handcrafted log home is nothing new. In fact, it was Swedish immigrants who first brought the old-world traditions of hand-scribing and saddle-notching to the Centennial Valley near Laramie, Wyoming – the same techniques we at Deerwood still use today.

Our craftsmen are not only specialists in their fields, each is also experienced in every phase of construction to assure precise attention to detail for every facet of a home. We like doing things the old fashioned way, building on traditions of craftsmanship and quality developed and perfected over generations.

At Deerwood, we incorporate innovative architectural details to suit each customer’s individual needs. The most important reason we pay so much attention to the unique design of each and every home we build is you, the customer. We want your home’s individual personality – created from a synthesis of natural materials with their natural environment – to reflect your own.


We invite you to visit with us, examine the quality construction of our homes and observe our crew of experienced craftsmen at work.  Finished homes surrounding Centennial and in nearby northern Colorado are available for viewing by appointment.  This would be an excellent opportunity to see the finished homes, talk to the owners and see how satisfied they are with the quality and design of their homes.
