About Us

In 1982, Jerry Wait moved his family to the Northern Wisconsin town of Land O' Lakes. He had a dream, literally, about a handcrafted log home nestled in a pine forest, surrounded by nature's artwork. He began his journey by gaining knowledge about handcrafted log homes from every book and experienced builder he could find. With the help of family, he crafted the image in his dream into the family homestead. Many people stopped to observe the building of, what at that time, was a unique home. Before he completed his home, Jerry found himself contracted to craft log homes for some of these visitors. From that humble beginning, came the creation of Frontier Builders.

As the years have passed, Jerry has been sharing his knowledge and experience with his peers, employees, and family. He has held the position of President of the International Log Builders Association, President of Great Lakes Logcrafters Association and President of the Headwaters Builders Association. The biggest benefactors of his knowledge and experience has been his son, Dan.

Dan has begun the transition to lead Frontier Builders into the future. Dan was one of Frontier's first employees. He was instrumental in hosting a weeklong log home building class, held in our log yard, for individuals interested in learning the techniques of handcrafting. His commitment to service and quality is apparent in every project we do. Throughout the years, Frontier Builders has been active in the community, crafting a memorial for the Veterans of Foreign War, donating a log building for the Land O' Lakes Chamber of Commerce office and building a log cabin for the Northwoods Children's Museum.

We are proud to call Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin our home!
