Log Homes

Building your dream log and timber home is likely one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. But you’re not the only stakeholder in this project. Your local building department requires the home be constructed to code. Your lender wants the home to be valued correctly. The builder wants to earn more business through word-of-mouth, as does the log and timber home producer.
