The History of Fairview Log Homes Contains Hundreds of Amish-Built Log Cabins for Wooster, Ohio, and Beyond


The past is a large part of an individual’s life that has formed who they have become and what they have learned through their experiences. History is the study of past events and how they relate to current decisions in life. Tim Yoder’s father started building log cabins in and around Millersburg, Ohio, over 35 years ago, leaving his son with a beautiful legacy and hundreds of satisfied customers. Tim Yoder began working with his dad as a teenager at Fairview Log Homes before he took over the business years later. The experience that has evolved in this custom log home building business makes trusting them with one’s dream home an enjoyable event. If anyone from Tuscarawas County, Ohio, to Medina County, Ohio, is looking for an affordable log cabin as a summer retreat or as a picturesque new home, Fairview Log Homes is a turnkey contractor so has the ability to guide them with design, site prep, and even the smallest details.  Anyone from Wooster, Ohio; Holmes County, Ohio; and Mahoning County, Ohio; will be guided through the entire construction process while creating their new Amish-built wooden house.


Through 37 years’ experience, Tim Yoder and his family have satisfied over 200 new homeowners who have always dreamed of living in a log cabin. Whether a retired production manager from Tuscarawas County is looking for an Amish-built wooden house or a newly married couple who has never owned a home wants an affordable log cabin in Millersburg, Fairview Log Homes can guide them through the process. This turnkey contractor specializes in custom log home building from Holmes County to Mahoning County with quality renewable lodgepole and northern white cedar logs. Through experience, they have found that a dry, seasoned log is perfect by eliminating the shrinking and twisting associated with freshly cut logs. Both species of wood are available for customizing the interior walls in rounded or flat surfaces, and if that newlywed couple wants to bring out the natural coloring of each log, Fairview Log Homes also offers a “handpeeled” look accomplished with traditional draw-knives. Eastern white pine, southern yellow pine, Eastern red cedar, and several other log species are also available. They have a variety of log modification choices available to match any clients’ preferences. 

With their Amish-built wooden houses, Fairview Log Homes offers impressive standard features before even perusing the vast array of custom options that they offer. Anyone looking for a summer retreat in Medina County, Wooster, and beyond can be satisfied knowing their chosen home will feature the following standards:


  • 8” log exterior walls
  • Log Rafter Roof System
  • Full Log Dormers & Gables
  • Cedar Exterior & Interior Trim
  • 10” Block Foundations
  • Custom Wood Floorings
  • Anderson Windows & Patio Doors
  • ProVia Entry Doors
  • 6-Panel Pine Interior Doors
  • Delta Plumbing Fixtures


Through their years of building, Tim Yoder and his father found that being able to take care of all phases of construction was beneficial in creating happy customers. They are a turnkey general contractor so that they can ensure staying within the agree-upon budget and time frame. Fairview Log Homes has also discovered that some clients prefer completing some of the affordable log cabins themselves so offer a “Dry-In Shell”; additionally, they can perform as much or as little of the process as requested. From breaking ground to final cleanup, any customer can count on being thrilled with the results of their experience.
