Got the log home fever?

Founded by Robert Kenel R.G. Log Builders specializes in custom log home construction. Licensed as a builder in the State of Michigan way back in 1976 “Grizzly Bob” Kenel has acquired almost 40 years of experience in building the log home you’ve dreamed of. Encompassing all aspects of log home construction Grizzly Bob also can also add in in those elements that add the finishing touch to your log home- from stone chimneys and fireplaces, to log stairways and railings, to special log accent furnishings. We also offer the ability to recommend different options for kitchens and bath that will enhance your log homes environment.

Grizzly Bob specializes in Scandinavian scribed, Chinked, or Manufactured log homes. Logs are available in Cedar, Red Pine and White Pine. The Red Pine and White Pine logs are available up to a 24″ base. Depending on the final log selected different staining options are available as well. See our gallery pages for examples.

Besides being members in many associated organizations past and present, we take great pride in our continual membership in  of the Great Lakes Log Crafters Association. Robert Kenel is a past president and director of GLLCA.
