Our Process

Whisper Creek Utilizes Innovative Techniques to build their homes

Whisper Creek utilizes innovative wall panelization building system technique that save time & money compared to traditional building methods, our homes often have immediate built-In equity, and are legacy homes that stand the test of time.

There are no other panelized wall home packages on the market that have the beautiful and unique natural accents or fabricating process that we have. As trailblazers In our industry we are constantly pushing the envelop, we’ve supplied packages for the Bass Pro Ranger Tower (Tacoma, WA), as well as in mountain resort golf communities like Rocky Creek Cattle Company (MT) and Gozzer Ranch (ID). If you have an idea we can quote a package price and design it into our panelized building system.

One of the most unique qualities about a Whisper Creek Wall Panel Home is the time and money that is saved in the construction process.

From the inception of our company we have focused our efforts on creating a high quality pre fab panelized home within a simple, enjoyable experience. In striving to create this on every home or commercial package we build in our quality controlled facility we work very closely with our dealers, customers and contractors to ensure that the set-up process goes as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

What our customers say

“Whisper Creek Log Homes were originally designed for Canadian winters where construction in mountainous areas is difficult. These rugged homes address the structural concerns of stack log homes by panelizing the construction but allow for the elegant look of log construction and versatility in finishing. As an engineer and Whisper Creek dealer, I am convinced that Whisper Creek Log Homes are the best structural and economic solution available for intelligent log home design.”
Steve Smith Dealer
“I have been a Whisper Creek Log Home Dealer now for a little over a year. I have sold and built one package so far and have a few more in the works. I have built with a few other pre-framed house systems and the WCLH system is by far superior to all others. Since I have become a dealer my business has grown by 25% and I expect that it will keep growing for years to come. I am proud to be part of the Whisper Creek family and glad that I am able to sell such a quality product.”
Andrew Beuschel Dealer/Builder
“Whisper Creek Log Homes has allowed Linda and I to live in our dream custom home at a great price. We became dealers 11 years ago and have had unbelievable success in helping over 50 families live out their dreams in Montana. If you’re looking to build a custom home and state of the art building process, this is it! Look no further, they are beautiful!”
Loren Baker MT Dealer
“I have built over 60 Whisper Creek Log Homes in the past 10 years. In my opinion, Whisper Creek produces the most revolutionary log home system in the industry. Whisper Creek uses high quality products and a specific building system that allows uniformity to the building process. Whisper Creek also provides excellent on-site advising for contractors and are quick to help resolve any building concerns. Because of their use of the same building system methods and quality materials, the homes go together much quicker than a traditional stick frame and this allows me to build more homes a year. I recommend Whisper Creek Log Home packages to all of my customers. Becoming part of the Whisper Creek builder network would be a great opportunity to grow your business and work with a great manufacturer.”
K.C. Jones Dealer/Builder
“Highest of accolades to the entire team at Whisper Creek Log Homes! Just five weeks after deciding to build our dream log home, our site was ready and the structure was immediately delivered. Four days later, our home was completely closed in ready for interior finishing—and at a fraction of what we thought we would spend!”
Robert Hal Parker Customer
“After living in a traditional log home and dealing with cracking, leaking, and bug infestation (not to mention the lengthy, costly building process), we were anxious to find an alternate way of log home living. Thank you Whisper Creek for giving us the look and feel of a hand crafted log home but without the inherent problems of a traditional log structure!”
Ken Benesh Customer
“I researched many log home companies in my pursuit of building my dream vacation home for my family and me. I had money to spend and was more interested in quality, elegance, and grandeur rather than pure price point. But with Whisper Creek I received all of the above! Well done Whisper Creek!”
Ross Jardine Customer
“Working with Whisper Creek Log Homes has been a wonderful experience for our family. We never thought that we could afford a cabin — thank you for helping us create our own special gathering place.”
Kim Stevenson Customer
“Whisper Creek Log Homes proved that they keep their word. When they say that you can save time and money over traditional log cabin construction, they mean it!”
Ann Staggs Customer
“Our beautiful log cabin is everything I dreamt of – and more. The craftsmanship is simply unmatched and the speed with which the cabin was ready for us to enjoy; was amazing.”
Donya Brown Customer
"I extensively shopped log home companies before deciding on Whisper Creek. Ultimately, I found their designs, pricing, responsiveness and customer service to be the best. During planning and design they were incredibly helpful, flexible and turned plans around very quickly. The home was delivered timely and the quality was outstanding. I also need to acknowledge our builder (and Whisper Creek distributor) KC Jones of Big 4 Development in Cedar City, Utah. I could not have had a better experience or result."
L Dicker Houzz
“We ordered a Whisper Creek Log Home for our cabin property. Whisper Creek produced a great product and even with our difficult delivery location, they worked out the details. We had a few small items that needed to be corrected (bound to be a few when building an entire home) and whisper creek was quick to respond and resolve any issues that came up. We had a few changes that we decided to make during construction that necessitated modifications or shipment of new products. Whisper Creek was again quick to respond and help us resolve. The changes that were needed without changing any kind of premium for the change or for rushing to get the materials to us in a timely manner, so as not to delay our construction. They were also very helpful when we ran into crazy interpretations of the codes by local building officials. They helped us resolve the issues and get our approvals needed, again at a reasonable cost. Great people to work with, and we are very satisfied with our cabin, and with our relationship with Whisper Creek.”
Kris Longson Customer
“We did quite a bit of research before choosing Whisper Creek Log Homes. Their product is the best we could locate for a log panel home. Our contractor and crew were also impressed by their solid workmanship and detail built into each component. Whisper Creek has great people that helped us along the building process as well. Anyone who has both at home knows there are hitches and hurdles to overcome. Whisper Creek was there for us and we are thankful they were. We highly recommend them and their product to anyone looking for a well-built log panel home.”
Michael Adams Customer
“Whisper Creek Log Homes was the company which we purchased our log home package from for our build in Alberta, Canada. We received very good service in the creation of the home packages as well as the blueprints. Thank you!”
Elaine Steinke Customer
“Absolutely “love” the aesthetically pleasing innovative design and layout by Whisper Creek. The logs are beautiful, natural accents complimenting nature. Especially “special” the wrap around porch and creative roof line. A wonderful experience talking with WC owners and staff. Our vision to build a guesthouse on 2 acres in Sun Valley, ID. Our expectations were surpassed by the high quality of professionalism, workmanship, and logs. The Riverwood panels arrive first week of Dec. 2021, eight months later we were moving in! Noteworthy: our contractor ( first time) assembled/erected log panels with assistance from WC answering all questions or concerns. Amazing, one week after delivery there was a log cabin on our property. Thank you Whisper Creek for specializing in Log Homes! Ecstatically happy and grateful.”
