- What kind of wood is used for the floors of my log cabin or log house kit?
The floor of cabins and log home kits needs to be tough and attractive. For this reason we use the #1 Dense Southern Yellow Pine (SYP). This wood holds up amazingly well, reducing wear and tear while maintaining it’s beauty for decades.
- How are the log cabin and log home kits shipped?
The log cabins are typically shipped on a flatbed tractor trailer. This provides the best method for unloading as well as the least expensive means to ship the product, allowing us to keep our cost down, which permits us to save you money!
- Can my log cabin be moved after assembly?
Yes! Some of the smaller cabins can be moved, however we do not suggest moving any cabin larger than our 13’x13’ model.
- Do I need a building permit to construct my log cabin kit?
Not in all locations—state and local laws vary. It is advisable to check with your local officials regarding the required regulations in your area.
- Will Conestoga Log Cabins & Homes build my log cabin or log home kit for me?
We’ve made our kits extremely easy to assemble, however, if needed, we do offer an additional assembly service. This service only includes assembly and does not involve any of the typical duties of a General Contractor (electrical, plumbing, etc.) If you require assembly or feel you would like to incorporate our services as a General Contractor, please contact us for a quote.
- What is the difference between "log cabin kits" and "log home kits"?
That’s an excellent question that doesn’t have an exact answer. Traditionally, we have considered any kit under 1,100 square feet to be a log cabin, all log kits over this we like to describe as a log house.
