The Barna Difference

The Barna DifferenceJim Barna Log and Timber Homes is one of the largest and most innovative log home manufacturers in the United States. Our founder Jim Barna shaped the landscape of today's log home market. More than thirty-five years ago, he started the trend of milling the logs to specific, uniform tolerances and joining them together with interlocking saddle-notch corners and tongue-and-groove walls to keep the structures weather-tight and the logs strait.

Since then, Jim Barna Log and Timber Homes has developed multiple log systems that provide innovation, integrity and ease of construction. Graded logs, kiln drying, pre-cutting, profiled corner notches, log adhesive and lag-screw assembly make Jim Barna Log and Timber Homes substantially stronger and more energy-efficient than many other log walls on the market. The result is a home that will remain comfortable and beautiful for generations.
