Bears Den is a home-based quilting and log home business,
operated from a log cabin near Pierre, South Dakota by Mike and Ann Sines since 1996.

Bears Den LogsThe business name came from our first Alaskan Malamute, Bear. Bear was followed by Mato (“bear” in Lakota). Sophie, his sister, came from a later liter and nine years later is still patrolling the fenced acre out back to be sure no other animals intrude. Mato was followed by Barney, (a derivative of Bernard, “bold as a bear” in Celtic), born April 2010 at Storm Kloud Kennels, Walsenburg, CO. He’s still waiting for his sled to arrive.

Ann Sines is a free-lance artist and quilt-maker. She creates custom quilts, teaches quilt classes and keeps the dogs in line.

Building the roofs of most of the log homes with ENERCEPT Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) lead to experience with SIP construction and factory certification as a trained SIP Installer. Bears Den is a local ENERCEPT dealer.
