Log Package Materials

American Log Homes is a manufacturer and supplier of log home components. We include these items along with doors and windows in our standard pre-cut log packages. Swedish coped logs are available only in random lengths. You may also custom tailor you own log package by specifying those items you wish to purchase from American. Logs may also be purchased in random lengths with the builder cutting the logs for door and window openings. Conventional lumber needed for the home is typically purchased by either the homeowner or builder from your local lumber yard or building center. By doing this, the materials can be delivered as they are needed on the job site with considerable savings to the homeowner.

It is highly recommended that homeowners who wish to build the home themselves have general construction knowledge and experience. If not, engage a local, experienced and reputable contractor. Check with local building departments for building code requirements. These may vary from state to state and county to county.

American Log Homes provides technical assistance with all pre-cut log packages along with a detailed construction manual. Financing should be obtained through local lending institutions. The contract purchase agreement for an American Log Home is 50% down, 6-8 weeks prior to manufacture with the final 50% due upon delivery day. All deposits are non-refundable
