Building Handcrafted and Milled Log Homes

Harper Construction Inc. has been in the construction business since 1986 and building log homes since 2000.  Although our specialty is milled and handcrafted log homes, we also offer all types of construction from remodels, to timber frame, super insulated panel and custom stick frame homes.  I am a member of the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB), an NAHB Certified Green Professional, an Energy Star Partner and continually being educated in the areas of up-to-date building practices and codes.  I am a Montana registered General Contractor (license#55014) and carry liability insurance and work comp.  The business side is covered by my wife who received her Bachelors and Masters in Business from MSU-Billings.  We work mostly in the Georgetown Lake, Philipsburg, Anaconda, and Granite county areas but will travel throughout the state of Montana. 

At Harper Construction Inc. we understand the importance of a satisfied customer.  The homes we build are warm and cozy in the winter and cool and comfortable in the summer because we always strive to exceed the standard energy building codes.  Our goal is to build a high performance home that requires little maintenance, saves the customer considerably on their utility bills while also being affordable.  If you are shopping builders please make sure your builder is registered, carries liability insurance, and also follows the 2009 IECC (International Energy Conservation Codes).  All new homes built in Montana since 2010 should meet these minimum code requirements and when completed should have an "Energy Efficiency Components" sticker placed on the electrical panel by the builder.  Unfortunately, since these codes are currently not enforced there are many builders that will not follow them.  Building to code is not just about energy efficiency for the foundation, walls, attic, windows, heating, cooling, etc. but is also about health issues such as allergies, radon gas, and mold that are addressed with proper conditioning and venting. For a copy of the 2009 IECC codes please click here.

Bring your own design or feel free to browse through our online Catalog of Floor Plans.  If you choose one of our designs you may modify it to fit your needs for whatever style home you build whether it be log, timber, or stick frame. 

If your interest is logs, we are skilled in both milled (to see the various log profiles click here) or hand-crafted log packages.  We offer a dry-in stage (you finish the inside) or turn key  (ready for you to move in).  If you would like to view our craftsmanship, our model log home (located between Hall and Philipsburg, MT) may be toured by appointment or you may click here to view some of our Past Projects.

Please contact us if you would like an estimate on a particular floor plan or have any questions at all. 

Harper Construction Inc. will work hard to provide a cost-efficient design, the finest grade materials available, and highly skilled craftsmen to fashion your affordable, high performance, green, American dream.
