What is in log house kit?

ECOHOUSEMART offers you a variety of package selections to ensure you can meet your budget and your construction needs.

Below are three basic packages and you’re automatically assured of getting the most complete laminated log package available.

Be careful when comparing — all log homes are not created equal. Avoid unpleasant surprises — spend time to know what’s included in your Laminated log house package before you purchase, not on the construction site. We are also ready to provide you with an individual package for your specific needs.

Your house kit is made of northern spruce, using the highest precision equipment according to the approved house project. Once your house kit is manufactured, it is transferred to your construction site where it is assembled quite fast, compared to other traditional house-building techniques.
