Tamlin’s new log home was first test fit and prefabricated in our own yard in Langley BC. All logs were cut , pre-assembled, and built first to make sure 100% that everything fit perfect. We even pre-drilled all the logs for electrical. And we sealed the logs with a clear stain to protect them.
As you can see once the log shell was constructed, we then took it apart piece by piece (or post & beam by post & beam!), while LABELING every component.
Then we carefully packaged all the logs , wrapped them and loaded all the materials on a truck. We included all the log walls, roof beams, doors, windows, and even a pre-made set of open riser stairs!
Our shipper loaded the truck and it arrived the next day in Barrier, BC. (north of Kamloops) . Our supervisor helped to unload the shipment with our clients who had a crane waiting. Within only 4 days , all the log walls and roof structure was assembled ! Unbelievably fast! The home owners were thrilled at how efficiently the logs were put together on site.
Frequently asked questions about milled log homes.
For this this style of post & beam/milled log home, we often get asked what equipment is required and how much the log components weigh. A crane truck with a 45-60 foot extension is often used and the logs may weigh 200-600 pounds depending on the log lengths. We always recommend proper safety and to work slow and steady to make sure your logs are assembled the right way.
