Log Home Kits
Log homes are built by stacking and interlocking logs or timber beams. They provide a unique rustic look and are often popular in rural locations for homes, cabins, bunkies and cottages.
There are two main types of wood homes we'll include here:
- Log homes - These are homes with entire logs stacked to form the walls of the house.
- Timber homes - These are beams which have been cut to a uniform size at a saw mill.
Creating a home from logs is the original method and has been used for thousands of years. Construction can be difficult however since the logs weight hundreds of pounds and require a lot of carving given that each one is unique.
Timber beam homes is a more popular approach these days as it provides a more refined look and is easier to assemble. This is a popular choice for those who want to build the home themselves. The entire building stacks together like Lincoln Logs!
