Find the Right Modular Log Cabin Home
First off, lets make it clear that Im no expert on modular log cabin homes; Im a gifted amateur at best. After reading several horror stories from people who bought modular log cabin homes, I suddenly feel a duty to point a few things that Ive learned about them.
Now lets start with researching your manufacturer. Just because a companys been in business for over a decade, dont believe that theyre an expert on modular log cabin homes. Ive heard of many instances where buyers went with what they thought was a well established company only to find that they received second grade wood that rotted away on them.
Next, find a good builder. Many contractors will say they are experts on building modular log cabin homes, and then halfway through the project they quit because its too difficult. You dont want to end up with a modular log cabin home with no roof, so ask the manufacturer as oftentimes they can refer you to a builder in your area.
Lastly, research your sealants. Theres a story of a modular home builder in Massachusetts, who used a toxic sealant and contaminated an eight acre property. Only CDC approved sealants should be used when treating logs against insects and termites.
