Golden Eagle Log Homes is a family business that grew from a successful building supply company. In 1966, Wally and Marlace Parmeter founded the Golden Eagle Building Center in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. With the knowledge gained from building conventional framed homes and an in-depth understanding of the building products industry, the Parmeters decided to pursue their dream of building a log home in which to raise their family.
Trees were individually selected from their own property and then carefully cut into logs and allowed to dry completely for one full year. Construction then began on the first Golden Eagle Log home, an event that did not go unnoticed by onlookers. No sooner had the Parmeters' moved in, than they were approached by others who were impressed by the quality craftsmanship and materials used in the home. This led to a small side business which began providing several custom log home packages a year to appreciative clientele.
It was in 1986, that Wally and Marlace decided to pursue their love of log construction by officially founding Golden Eagle Log Homes. The boys embarked on a busy time of assembling the necessary land, building the necessary shop space and purchasing and installing the required machinery.
During the day the boys ran the thriving building center and in the evening manufactured log homes, long into the night. In these days, the company "board" meetings consisted of sitting at the family picnic table under a clear blue Wisconsin sky. Their dedication was so strong that sales from their "night job" soon surpassed those of the building center.
Wally and Marlace retired in 1997, but not before making sure that the business was left in capable hands. Today, Golden Eagle Log Homes is owned by their sons Jay and Tod Parmeter.
The company produces 100 log homes a year. Every one of them, delivered with care, attention-to-detail and personal service. Golden Eagle's success comes from a dedicated group of people devoted to the time honored tradition of quality workmanship.
From the very beginning, the company has enjoyed continued growth, but the principle on which it all began remains the same - to offer superior log homes at fair and affordable prices.
