Log or Timber Home Packaging

"Most personal with the best value"! Ultimate flexibility and customization...this is your custom home. Our standard process of designing and packaging your log or timber home is based on your personal, architectural, budget and site requirements. Simply stated, we custom design your home, the log or timber components, the structural platforms and the building material package to your your exact requirements.

Building materials & design services bundled together for your log or timber home is called a "PACKAGE" and is often referred to as a "KIT" (they are the same thing). Your package can be a bundle described by the following (3) categories:

  1. DESIGN & ENGINEERING (plans package) - custom home design and the creation of an engineered set of building plans
  2. BUILDING PRODUCTS WE MANUFACTURE (base log/timber package) - wall & gable logs, sidings, post, headers, rail, etc
  3. BUILDING PRODUCTS WE DISTRIBUTE (dry-in package) - sundries, hardware, conventional framing materials, etc

The reason we offer and usually provide them is to yield you better budget control, more efficient project development and a more enjoyable experience for something as complex as building a custom home.
