Log Home and Hybrid Package Contents

Our log home materials package is one of the most complete and pre-cut packages available in the industry. Your home arrives on site with each log precision-cut and numbered for a perfect fit. In addition, we pre-cut log gables, porch, deck, loft and stair railings. We also cut and hand-peel our own round purlins. Because we cut, plane and "care for" so much of the package, we take full responsibility for every piece. This decreases on-site labor costs and the chance for error. Feel free to modify the materials package to fit your own needs and ideas for your own log home.

All log homes are not created equal and log home and cabin kits vary from company to company. While one company may supply a "logs only" package, the next one may supply a lot more. That is why comparing the quality and items supplied in each materials package is important. After all building a log home is one of the largest investments you will make so it is important to make the right decision. You are not only buying a home, you are buying a company and it's ability to provide you with a quality home. View our Comparison Guide (PDF) to help you. We will even fill it out when you are ready if you would like. Know what you are getting before you buy. Never hesitate to ask a question. What may seem insignificant may be important.
