Our Story

We’ve always been a family-owned company. That’s something that we feel sets us apart from so many other manufacturers out there… something that you’ll see in the quality of our products and in the care we provide from start to finish.

Somewhere during the childhood, years spent helping “dad” logging, we discovered how much fun it it is and how beautiful the result of creating with this majestic piece of nature. Jason spent his spare time during high school making T&G and siding with his brother on a molder he bought from a family friend, building log furniture and even building log homes from log kits purchased from manufacturers up north. While building these other kits Jason was often frustrated that logs were not dry enough to ensure that shrinking wouldn’t be problem, ends were tapered too far to meet building codes… and that the manufacturers were so far away.

Intent on providing customers with logs grown in and acclimated to the local climate, having a full service manufacturing plant and providing jobs for local residents right here in Colorado, in 1980, Jason and his wife Terri started TJ’s Wood Products. Operations started small, with log railings, trusses, stairs etc., and eventually expanded include the incredible custom log homes you see today. Check out our MODELS page to see for yourself!

Our Service

At TJ’s Wood Products, our service begins and ends with our experienced professionals. From the design phase through final construction, we’re there for our customers every step of the way.

We prebuild on our site, disassemble and then reassemble on your subfloor. No job is too big or too small: we’ve constructed custom log homes ranging from 600 square feet to up over 10,000 square feet! We have a large variety of log home kits & plans that can be easily modified to your preferences, or we can work with you to draw a completely custom floor plan that meets your specific requirements.

We take pride in offering our residential and commercial customers the quality materials they need to make their log home or business withstand the test of time.

We oversee our log & timber manufacturing process from beginning to end. We have contracted with the USFS to responsibly log sections of forest in CO. So all of our logs are native to Colorado and acclimated to our dry and dramatically variable climate. We dry our logs to below the industry standard so shrinking or movement is not an issue. We do all of this in order to produce handcrafted structural and cosmetic log products that preserve the rustic beauty of the old world while meeting modern day construction demands.

Each log is hand-selected, hand-peeled and hand-scribed, and custom cut to meet our customers specific requirements, from 3 inches in diameter up to 36 inches in diameter, from 1 foot in length up to 50 feet. All house logs are inspected and grade stamped by onsite our TPI (Timber Products Inspection, Inc.) certified inspector, and since they are right here on site, we can also grade individual logs for our customers as needed.

When you look back over the past 30 plus years, it’s really no surprise that TJ’s Wood Products has become the premiere provider of handcrafted log homes, log accents and commercial log work in Colorado for malls, retail outlets, or mountain log homes… it’s passion for what we do. You’ll find it in every accent, home, lodge and commercial log structure that we create.

Assembly Plant
