"THE COMPLETE LOG HOME PACKAGE"
More than you can imagine possible
Many log home companies have followed our lead, offering homeowners the convenience that comes with a building package. But ours was the first- and today, it remains one of the most complete packages, with the highest quality components available from any log home manufacturer.
The log home materials package arrives on site with each log precision-cut and numbered for a perfect fit. In addition, we pre-cut our own Northern White Cedar exterior and interior trim for all doors and windows, our log gables, and even all 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.
No surprises, no delays!
Our packages also include the majority of other components required for construction. So there are no unpleasant, costly surprises and no delays resulting from extra trips made to the local lumberyard or home center. We also use only the best name-brand materials. As a result of our ability to buy in bulk, you benefit from preferred pricing on a wide range of brand-name components. Of course, you have the flexibility to eliminate or substitute nearly any component you like.
Quality brand names included in our standard building package

Owens Corning® roof shingles; Owens Corning shingles combine consistent quality with long-lasting beauty and maximum protection. All styles offer these key features: Fiberglass® mat for weather protection, greater fire resistance and longer life, weather-grade asphalt, which protects the roof from water; colorful mineral granules that help reflect the sun's rays; and a heat-activated adhesive strip that bonds shingles into a single, watertight unit. Many styles also carry a Wind Resistance Rating for winds and gusts up to 110 mph, and all have a Class A Fire Rating, the highest available for residential applications.
