From the Ashes
we built Gem House Logs
Hello, I’m Micah Brown and we are Gem House Logs, a company built from ashes, yes literally ashes and a vision. My dad started the company in 2000 after being laid off from his previous job. He decided that it was the perfect opportunity to make one of his dreams come true. He purchased a burnt down lumber mill and started welding. He rebuilt the old mill to his own design of a giant lathe that could produce milled logs for log homes, decorative columns, trusses and stairs. Although, he didn’t stop there, he also built a custom saw which could create timber, mantels, corbels, beams and much more.
When Dad initially began the business, it was a family affair, we all helped. After all there were 10 of us kids. I had a pretty good idea that I wanted to take over the family business after a few years of college. While attending Boise State University I would work at the mill to help with the expenses of college and it was an opportunity for me to be creative.
It was in 2013 that Dad passed away and I purchased the business. Since then we have streamlined some of our processes as well as expanded our business by adding a CNC machine, log press, hand crafted timber framing, custom flooring, and hand scraped beams.
Since our start in 2000 we have strived to create quality products at a fair price.
What They’re Saying
“Micah Brown and Gem House Logs assisted me in 2017-2018 in building my new home. Half of the front was juniper logs and stucco. In addition I had large rough cut beams on the interior which needed extra shaping. Juniper logs can be difficult to work with however, Micah and his employees helped me get them plained ,scribed and coped for a perfect fit. Micah has the equipment necessary to work with big logs. On his lathe he turned juniper posts to my specifications which was used in my home. When I had questions about the construction Micah had the expertise to help me figure out those challenges. Micah is very prompt and dependable in his work and reasonably priced. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my house. My biggest problem now is that I never want to leave.”Marc HawsWith Micah if it's not perfect, it's not good enough.
