The Log Home Package

Our Log Shell Packages

When you buy a handcrafted log home, you’re getting the “log shell” – that is, the main log structure of the home (including log staircases and log railings), without any of the fixtures.

Once the shell is complete, you can then completely customize your dream home by adding log staircases and railings, trusses, carvings, log furniture … if you can dream it, we can build it!

Depending on the size of the home, our log shells can take anywhere from 1 to 4 months to build, followed by another 4 to 5 months to finish completely.
