The Process of Building a Log Cabin

We approach every project with our proven process to ensure you receive a cabin that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

Design

The first step entails a consultation with a member of our design team. During your design consultation, we’ll get to know who you are, what you want, and how we can make your dream cabin a reality. Our knowledgeable designers will offer recommendations based on your needs and their experience to create a design you’ll love.

Build

With few exceptions, we build all of our log cabins with the best materials in our climate-controlled facilities. By keeping the construction in-house, we’re able to ensure that our skilled specialists consistently build structures that meet our high quality standards.

Deliver

We’ll deliver your fully-constructed cabin to your property ourselves so we can verify everything is done correctly. From the start of the build to delivery, the process usually takes between 10 and 12 weeks.

Install

Our team will handle installation, as well, ensuring that your new cabin is level, stable, and secure. If there are any additional features you’ve selected, such as a porch, we’ll install them onsite.

Enjoy
