What’s Not Included in Our Log Package
One of the biggest misconceptions about log home packages is people think they include ALL the necessary materials to build and finish a log home. While they include the core materials for the log home itself, log home packages do not include everything you may think. For example, log home packages do not include windows, doors, flooring, or appliances. Also, any materials or services generally provided by contractors or subcontractors are also excluded from the log home package. Such service work or materials excluded from the log home package are in the following list below: the log home’s excavation and foundation, the general construction and assembly, the plumbing and electrical, the roofing, etc. It is up to you work with your log home contractor to arrange these services for your log home. Since Yellowstone Log Homes is one of the largest log home manufacturers in the United States, we can help you find local contractors and subcontractors near you. Items not included:
