Please see the Frequently Asked Questions below for more information.

What types of timber is my cabin made from?

Nordic Pine

What is meant by Kiln Dried and Milled Logs, and what are their advantages?

Our logs are Kiln dried down to 13%-14% moisture.  This is what allows the boards to be nice and straight.  Our logs are Milled to a flat board instead of the round logs you see in log cabins to allow for ease of transportation.  This also make is it much easier when adding cabinets and internal designs to the interior.

What is Tongue and Groove Assembly?

Our buildings are assembled as opposed to stick built.  They are double tongue and groove and stack on top of each other.

What tools will I need to assemble my kit?

Answer here

What all comes with my Building Kit?

Our kits are the shell.  They come with all the pre-cut boards you need to assemble the model you chose.  This includes the floor boards, roof boards, windows, doors and internal walls and doors if your model has multiple rooms.  Hardware is also included and pre-treated moisture barrier foundation boards.

What about the maintenance on my Building Kit?

Your building comes all natural raw wood.  It will need to be sealed right after you open your package.  This can be done before you assemble or after.  We have found it is easier to apply stain or paint after assembly.  The maintenance is much the same as any wood product such as a deck, depending on your region, terrain and weather conditions, when you see it is time to repaint or stain, you need to do so.  These are made of high quality timber.

How are various snow loads addressed?

Our buildings do very well in all types of weather.  If you live where you get a lot of snow, or heavier snow loads are required, we can meet those needs.   We offer reinforced roofs for just this reason.   You just need to inform us what snow load requirement you need and we will gladly get that quoted for you.  

How are wind loads addressed?

We use 150 mph hurricane straps on all our Tiny Homes for Trailers.  If you want a model on a foundation, we have storm rods that are drilled in the boards and threaded through.  These can be attached to concrete if so desired.

Do I need to worry about Building Codes?

It is always the customers responsibility to do their homework and know the codes for the area they are putting a building.  You can check to see what size building, [what external square footage] you can put up that would not require a permit.  Some areas will also have a height restriction so be sure to check.  If you are building something larger that requires code, just let us know what your needs are.

What about installation?

If added insulation besides the tongue and groove log walls is needed, we offer two types of double wall construction.  They can be insulated just like any other home either on the inside, the outside, or between double walls.  We will be glad to discuss this with you.
