Complete Building Material Packages for  Your Peace of Mind

Material & Package Specifications

Combine the Log & Timber, Weather-Tight, and Finish Materials Packages of our product and you will be assured of getting the most complete log home package available. Be sure that you are careful when comparing product information as all log homes are not created equal. Avoid unpleasant surprises — the time to know what’s included for the construction of your log home is when you purchase the log home package, not on the job site.
