What's Not Included in the Log Shell Price?
Is the cost of transporting the log shell to my site included in the shell price?
No, the cost of shipping the log package by truck (or boat or rail) is not included in the shell price, as it varies hugely depending on the distance from our log yard to your building site. We can obtain an estimate once we know where your building site is located.
Do you offer turnkey services (General Contractors)?
No, The log Connection does not build the entire home. We provide the log shell package only, as listed above.
Is the fireplace included?
No, this is purchased locally
Can you supply the stone?
No, this is an extremely heavy product to transport. Shipping fees will exceed the product cost.
Do you do the foundation?
No, The Log Connection requires that the foundation and sub-floor be in place upon arrival of the log shell package.
