LOG HOME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Are there standard floor
plans available or can I custom design my own plan?
We offer a number of standard floor plans which usually act
as a departure point for designing your own personal dream
home. Modifications are made to accommodate your needs and
desires. You may send us any floor plan and we will
configure it for your log home.
What species of log do you use?
We use dead standing Western White woods (lodgepole pine,
spruce and Douglas Fir). This means our logs have a very low
moisture content making shrinkage minimal.
What profiles are available with your log homes?
Swedish Coped, D-profile and Dovetail are our primary
profiles. We also produce half log siding.
What kind of foundation is best for a log home?
This depends on local building codes, your preference as
well as the terrain in your area. Generally a log home can
be constructed on almost any type of foundation.
Do you build custom homes?
Almost all homes become custom even when choosing from our
standard floor plans due to the personal choices of the
Can and how are these homes shipped to the owners?
Our homes can be shipped anywhere in the USA. Shipping is
usually handled by a national trucking company recommended
by our company. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to
make payment arrangements with the carrier. However we will
work with the homeowner to insure the best possible rates
with the carriers. Purchasing terms are 50% down and balance
10 days prior to shipment. All arrangements are FOB Darby,
Are your plans drawn by an architect, CAD produced and
All plans are drawn by our in house architect. However if
engineering is required it will be at the additional expense
of the homeowner. Sometimes we utilize a CAD program for
specific geographic area and even these plans are reviewed
by our architect.
Can we utilize local contractors and tradesmen?
Yes. We encourage the customer to utilize local craftsman
which usually creates a big savings for the customer.
How do I get a price quotation?
Fill out the customer contact form, provide us the basic
information you need and we will send a preliminary preplan
estimate of your log home.
