The approximate final price of a log home is three (3) to four (4) times the price of the log package.
We sell custom handcrafted log home packages and not basic log home kits. Our custom handcrafted log homes are priced based on their square footage; if you know the square footage of the structure you wish to build I can provide you with a price. For pictures, see our portfolio and photo galleries.
