1000 Sq Ft Post & Beam Rustic Cabin Comes With Loft & Vaulted Ceilings

Our “Pine Beetle” cabin package is pre-cut and test fit at our factory in British Columbia. The logs are square profile 10”–12”, tongue & groove and easy to assemble for your perfect get-away cottage location. We re-mill all timbers with a rustic “re-sawn” finish which brings back the original wood appearance but maintains the rustic features. Using salvaged timbers, there is minimal shrinkage or settling, because the wood is already seasoned & air dried. Our lock-up log home package includes pre-cut log walls, timber trusses, pre-made heavy timber douglas fir stairs, vinyl exterior doors and vinyl windows. All of the items for the “shell” of your cottage.
