Total System Approach:
Log Homes of the South believes in the total system approach to log home building because it is the best way to ensure the highest quality results. Having all framing and trim lumber shipped as a package ensures that everything needed for construction will be available and that all of these materials have been subjected to the same high standards of quality control.
Log Homes of the South provides a wide variety of product options, which currently consist of nine different log systems, in as many as four different log species; three different types of exterior windows and doors; uncut or pre-cut rafter and beam systems, each available in two different types of material; and two different types of dry-in packages with many options.
