The Leelanau Log Home Company LLC is owned and operated by Brad Karikomi and Jim Coyle and located near Traverse City in beautiful Northern Michigan. We chose to establish our log home company in Northern Michigan for its natural beauty, endless outdoor activities and quality of life.

As authorized dealers for Strongwood Log Homes and Woodhaven Log & Lumber we have the freedom and flexibility to offer a wide range of log home building systems so we can fit the right product to our client’s needs, budget and lifestyle. 

Choose from milled log (round, D and flat profiles), Swedish cope, handcrafted, timber frame, log sided and hybrid log home packages.

Our clients tell us they like the single-point of contact and accountability dealing with one company to design and build their custom log home. Our design-build approach eliminates the redundancies so we can achieve the high quality results that you expect. Our one-stop-shopping services include: custom design, general contracting, shell-in to turn-key construction and maintenance services.
