GK Meyer Construction is a general contracting company that specializes in original log and timber frame structures, the renovation of historical homes and structures, and building new homes using logs, timbers and lumber reclaimed from historical structures in combination with new materials. This combination results in the perfect melding of old and new, producing a structure that appears as it may have in the 1800’s but with all the comforts of a 21st century home. In addition, they offer custom made furnishings, flooring and millwork to complete the historical look. Items are made in their workshop in rural Missouri from reclaimed logs, lumber or new materials, whichever is appropriate to the piece being created.

The work GK Meyer does preserves history and conserves natural resources. Many structures can be restored to their original beauty, providing families not just another cookie cutter house, but a unique home. GK Meyer purchases log cabins and timber frame structures from owners who want to have them removed from their property but want the materials to be used again. They want to know that the materials that formed the home their ancestors homesteaded in will be resurrected and used to create a home where a new family will live comfortably and happily. Whenever possible, GK Meyer provides a documented history to their clients detailing where the materials were harvested from.

Few contractors have the knowledge and skill required to dismantle and reconstruct log cabins and timber frame structures. GK Meyer’s crew members are experienced in new construction and historical construction. This experience combines to produce a finished product that their clients are proud to own.
