Buying a log cabin kit can be a once in a lifetime experience. There are many critical decisions that need to be made through the process from finding the right company to manufacture the kit, to selecting the ideal floor plan, determining the exact location (city/state, etc.) and position of the log cabin to take advantage of the views, to deciding who will construct the log cabin, selecting the type of logs to use for the greatest longevity, ease in building etc.
If it hasn’t yet become obvious at this point, let’s put it this way to simplify things: buying log cabin kits can be a challenging endeavor, but it doesn’t have to be. Why not? Conestoga Log Cabins has made the decision process extremely easy for soon to be log cabin owners thanks to their new, cutting edge materials and technology.
Conestoga Log Cabins, based out of Lebanon, Pennsylvania, started nearly 30 years ago with a mission to be the leading log cabin homes manufacturer in the industry. After ten years of R&D and several generations of machinery, they produced their first log cabin kit for the campground rental market. Over the next 30 years, the initial concepts and dream have progressed into a streamlined, 100,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Now, the company has supplied over 3,000 cabins that stand today in all 50 states and 7 foreign countries.
The company has a significant competitive advantage; the Everlast Log.
The Everlast Log is engineered to eliminate many of the common problems associated with log cabin kits, build-time and maintenance. The Everlast Log is stronger and more durable, while being more resistant to warping, twisting and checking that is typical of most log cabin kit manufacturer’s products. The Everlast Log, by design resists movement because it is laminated and kiln-dried to 15% or below moisture content. Furthermore, the Everlast Log is resistant to decay because it is kiln-dried below the 19% fungi threshold.
Sound confusing? It can be. So, General Manager Randy Ketchum puts it this way, “The biggest advantage to the Everlast Log is that there is virtually no cracking, shrinking and twisting of the logs themselves, which enables our production staff to not only notch every log with precision, but to drill for fasteners and all electric including mortising electrical boxes. Bottom-line, our logs translate to quicker build time and lower overall construction costs.”
He then goes on to explain, “Our customer’s like the fact that the engineered log enables us to use length’s up to 28’ which means fewer joints and an all around tighter, more energy efficient building that requires less maintenance than a traditional log structure.”
In a market with plenty of options for log cabin kit manufacturers, Conestoga Log Cabin’s Everlast Log has set them apart from the competition.
