Construction Process
The Design Stage
  • The design can be supplied by the customer or the draftsman and architects from Moonstone can work with the customer to create their dream home.
  • The foundation is made on the customer's lot sometime prior to delivery.
Log & Timber Selection and Preparation
  • The logs for your home are hand selected northen Ontario white pine - one of the finest woods for log building in the world.
  • Logs range in size from 12 to 14 inch tips and 18 to 26 inch butts.
  • The logs are hand peeled with razor sharp peeling tools.
  • A clear, protective coating to prevent moisture penetration and discoloration is applied.
The Structure is Created
  • Your log shell is handcrafted one log at a time in the Moonstone building yard; all door and window openings are cut and electrical outlets are mortised and drilled.
  • Your timber frame is created in Moonstone's beamery using
    traditional layout and joinery methods.
  • Frames are pre-fit and drawbored for a tight fit even after shrinkage.
  • Then the timbers receive a final planing and a coat of oil is applied.
  • Building at our own building yard minimizes the noise level and inconvenience for your new neighbours.
  • The bark, wood scraps and saw dust from the building process do not clutter your lot.
Delivery of Your Structure
  • Your log or timber frame home is tagged and disassembled, then loaded onto trucks for transport.
Reassembled On Your Foundation
  • The Moonstone team assembles your structure on your foundation.
The Finishing Stages
  • Your finishing contractor completes the electrical, mechanical, and interior touches.
The Final Stage
  • Years of enjoyment because you selected Moonstone Timber Frame to build your Timber Frame or Log Home.
