At Coast Mountain Log Homes, we take pride in our customer service,  therefore in an effort to offer you Exceptional Customer Service and make your experience with us a  positive one we ask that you read the following information before contacting the Coast Mountain Log Homes sales team.

In response to many  email requests for information we have included some of the frequently asked questions from our FAQ section of our website.


Question: What type of log shell do you sell?
We build and sell Handcrafted Log Home Shells made from real full length, full sized logs.  Our logs are hand peeled and hand scribed and fitted to ensure a tight seal.  We DO NOT sell milled, profiled, or machine cut log homes or log home packages or log home kits.  We are real craftsmen building real log homes that are as unique as the person who is buying it. As log crafters we are able to do things with logs that you could not even attempt with milled logs.  We are able to add  character wood, flared butts and unique details that require real knowledge of logs as a construction material.  You will find that our prices for a handcrafted  "Real" log home built on our yard then shipped and re-assembled on your site  are nearly the same as a machined or "kit" home once you factor in the costs of paying a contractor to stack your logs and cut notches after your purchase the machined or milled  log "kit".  Milled logs are uniform in appearance and most don't even resemble logs at all, unless you consider a square piece of lumber a log. Still don't see the difference? Look at the pictures below.

We DO NOT sell milled logs like the ones pictured here

Question: Do you offer "Turn-key" log home packages?
: No.  Building handcrafted  log home shells is what we do best; therefore we leave the other tasks involved in finishing a log home to the Tradesmen who do them best.  We have found that it is considerably less expensive for you to hire a local contractor familiar with you local building market than it would be for you to hire us to finish the log home to "Turn-key".  We will work with your contractor to ensure that he or she is familiarized with finishing a log home.

Question: Do you install the roof; the doors and windows; the foundation?
Answer: No.  Again we are expert log and timber craftsmen and not expert  Roofing Carpenters, or General Contractors.  Like log home and timber construction, these jobs are best left to the experts who do them day in and day out.  Our log shells arrive ready for framing and even if you framer does not have experience with log homes he or she will be able to frame the roof and install the doors and windows the same as any other house construction.  Our plans come with a complete set of construction details to guide your carpenter.

Question: What is the finished cost of a log home?
Answer: This is impossible for us to tell you because we do not know what level of quality and detail you desire in your finished home and there are literally thousands of  items that go into building a house.  We can however,  tell you how much the log home shell will cost because that is the only part we have control over. Other than that we will not venture a guess as to the finished cost of your log home.  Your contractor will have a better idea of the finished costs.

Question: How much does a log shell cost?
You can expect to pay thirty-eight ($38) to sixty ($60) dollars US or more per square foot of finished floor space not including the basement. This range of price is reflective of the details involved, the species of log desired, and the overall size.
We would be pleased to provide you with a free estimate on your design and for the log shell package that you desire.  Keep in mind that a "rough rule of thumb" is that the the log shell represents about 25%-30% of the overall cost of the finished home if a General Contractor is used.  An Owner-Built home should be considerably cheaper all things being equal.

Question: What is included with my log home package?
Our log home shell packages include the log shell structure, log roof system, log stairs optional items are log railing materials and lumber packages including framing and finishing lumber. All wood is hand peeled and all interior  walls are spot sanded to give a smooth to the touch finish. We can provide. Click Here for Log Home Package Details

Question: Is Shipping Included?
Answer: Shipping is a necessary evil whether you live 5 miles or 5000 miles from the construction yard.  In order  for us to maintain consistent pricing, and to insure that you receive a fair shipping price based on current shipping rates to your area, we do not include the price of shipping in our log shell package price. We do however have estimated trucking costs within the continental US here and we will gladly get you an more accurate quote once you have
provided us with your Site address.
