Construction Details

Consider the Modular Construction Benefits:

All our log home and recreational cabins are all prefabricated in our factory using modular techniques.  This means the your home will not be exposed to rain or snow during construction, which is a known issue with site-built homes.  The modular home sections are built stronger than the typical site-built home so they can withstand the rigors of transit without being affected.  These advantages that provide long-term benefits.
