Are you looking for a spectacular log home in a really great place?

In a community where all homes are built to strict architectural standards that preserve and enhance the value of your property?horse ranch property for sale with log home designs

Then take a closer look at North Idaho Equestrian Ranch Estates, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Overlooking picturesque downtown Coeur d'Alene, located among serene countryside, set against a vast scene of mountain and lake views; these equestrian ranches will be architecturally styled with a feeling of the national parks of the west. 

Each meadow and treed 5-acre parcel offers an alluring natural location to sustain a charismatic, vibrant & practical environmental community.

As CAD software became the standard tool of trade in architecture, engineering, and design services, it became apparent by omission  that rendering organic elements such as logs and heavy timbers challenged the scope of computer based programs.  Log structures especially, however, demand extensive and accurate visual context.  Necessity dictated that we set upon a quest to develop virtual building technology that  would satisfy its demanding requirements - the creation of the Logmaker 3D CAD system was a natural step along the way to providing a quality solution.

Virtual Building provides dedicated, concise, and accurate design, engineering, analysis, documentation and visualization production via the virtual building process.  Photo-realistic and programmable to individual project parameters, this technology sets the foundation for all designs and virtual production.

"The ability to 'see' and 'interact' within the design has become paramount"
- Curt Frountier, International Log Builders Association

Initially, Logmaker was conceived to provide visual imaging services, specifically for our "in-house" log and timber framed projects.  With the success of our technology and popular demand from the log building community, our multi-media services were extended to include "out-of-house" projects from other professional services as well as to the general public.

Although the creator and owner of Logmaker has retired at this time, he can still be reached via email here. We can also still put you in touch with some expert custom designers, if you have your own design in mind.

Some of the areas of specialization are:

Architectural Illustrations

Photo-Renderings

3-Dimensional Elevations

Project Modeling

Fly By Animations

Virtual Walk-Troughs

Interactive Simulations

Sun Studies

We have used our skills and technology for projects both large and small...  From converting sketches off paper napkins - to complete illustration & modeling of professional portfolios -  to work on feature films.
