Title: Beyond the Log Home Package

There are many misconceptions within the log home industry but one of the most common seems to be when it comes to the log home package.
Some frequently asked questions:

What do you include in your log package?

At Mountain Creations Log Homes, we include items that make sense and mostly include components that we manufacture.

It is very important to remember that every log home company offers a different package or "kit" and comparing apples to apples is virtually impossible for the homeowner or the log home companies themselves. At Mountain Creations Log Homes we strive to go beyond the log package and help our customers with each facet of their log home. We can help you coordinate everything from your building permit to the flooring.

Our standard log package includes all of your Exterior 6 x 6 D Style Log Walls, R 38 Exposed Roof Rafter System, Exposed 2nd Floor System, Heavy Timber Porch Roof Systems & Decking and Interior Tongue & Groove for all interior walls, ceilings & closets. In addition to these components our standard package includes complete custom design & construction blueprints, Accessories and Sikkens Cetol stain.

Do you include Windows & Doors?

If you have put some time into researching log homes you know that some companies include windows & doors, while some include shingles and others include interior doors only. There is no consistency from company to company.

We do not include windows & doors, interior doors or shingles for a few very simple reasons. We want our customers to have the freedom to choose whichever window company or style of shingle or metal roof that fits their taste. No two Mountain Creations Log Homes are alike and you will have the opportunity to customize your home to your exact liking. When it comes to these items, you will want to have these delivered when you need them to make life easier on the builder as well as keep your windows from becoming damaged during construction. We have set up relationships with Pella Windows as well as local lumber companies to allow you the flexibility you need and offering you great deals and general contractors pricing.

Remember when it comes to building your house that there is much more involved than just the log package. There is no magic formula or perfect multipliers for determining the cost of your log home. We will help you cost out each component of your home and help you stay in budget. Call us today to learn more about how to get started. 814-673-3336.
