Q. How much is delivery?

A. "Swedish Cope" refers to the way the logs fit one to another. Our logs have a concave cope approximately 4 inches wide that fits the round log below making a much tighter seal. A foam weather-strip is provided to place in the cope for extra insulation value and to minimize any air filtration.

Q. Can we build our home ourselves or do we need a contractor?
A. Many of our customers choose to build their homes. If you have a the time and a good understanding of construction, it would save on costs. We do have contractors available who start from a "shell only" and make the structure into a "turnkey" home.
