Log & Timberframe Home Package Contents

Our log and timberframe home packages come ready to assemble on your foundation and subfloor.

Log & timber frame home packages complete with a supervisor.

Our goal is to do what we do best — provide you with an easy to assemble, strong and beautiful structure.

That is why we do not include windows, doors and many other extraneous items in our basic package. You can save money by buying those things closer to home without the extra shipping and handling.

We start our package with the basic frame. To help you with ease of construction and energy efficiency, we do offer several options that you may want to consider.

Optional SIP Roof Panels
Structural insulated panels (SIP) work very well with timber frame homes, especially where the roof system is not very complicated. They are very energy efficient and provide strength to the roof. We can provide a custom engineered system for your home. To reduce time and labor, we can install the ceiling decking on the panel. SIP roof packages are individually priced for each specific house and energy efficiency.
