Complete Log Home Packages

Frontier Builders will go over the site preparation requirements necessary for the delivery of your log shell package. We require a clear area on at least one side of the building site to allow us to set up our crane and log trucks for the reassembly of your log home package. The Complete Log Home Package includes the followings: Log walls Log floor joists and ties Log roof framing (rafters purlins and ridge) Log trusses Log posts Gable ends Log railings Any other log materials as indicated by your plans As an additional service, we can supply windows with installation and a variety of roof system. By providing these additional materials, your log home will be weather tight and ready for finishing when we leave your site.  

Indoor Construction

Our log and timber products are constructed in a 14,000 square foot controlled-environment facility. This makes satisfied customers whose homes were completed in a timely manner and whose raw materials, and Craftsmen were not subjected to the wear and tear of the elements during the construction process. In our Northern Wisconsin climate there are nine months of the year when staying warm is the major comfort concern. The days in October through February are short. In order to work a good 10 hour day we need the lights to be on, so the guys can work a set schedule, this keeps our projects on schedule and this is attractive to the experienced craftsman. Think of any job you do outside and the possibility of doing that job indoors. What a difference this can make in the quality of the finished wood product!  

Other Services:

Design Services - Frontier Builders offers complete design services to help in the construction of your new log home. Before construction can begin on your log building, we need to have a complete set of working drawings. The production of working drawings is done in two phases. Preliminary Drawings - The size and character of your home is developed. Included are the floor plans, elevations and one section. We use a 3-D modeling program to help you visualize the look of your home. When the preliminary design phase is completed, we can provide a firm proposal for the construction of your new home Construction Drawings - The Construction Drawings are completed after a project has been contracted and are used by the contractors to complete your project. In addition to the floor plans and elevations, sections, finish schedules and details will be included as necessary. Contracting Services - Every project has varying levels of contractor involvement and is typically dictated by the home buyers schedule, location and budget. Frontier Builders can provide just the log shell to be erected on an existing foundation and sub-floor as well as complete turn-key finished projects. The level of contracting services required feeds directly into the project estimate. Contractor management fees are included in the project estimate commensurate with the level of involvement Fronter Builders is expected to provide. Estimating Services - After the preliminary drawings have been accepted by the client, the estimation process begins. This can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks. We separate the estimate across the functional areas of the construction process to include Planning/Permits, Foundation, Framing, Exterior Windows & Doors, Electrical Systems, Plumbing Systems, HVAC System, Fireplaces & Trim, Roof, Insulation & Drywall, Exterior Finish, Cabinetry & Counter-tops, Interior Trim, Floor-covering, Interior Finishes, Door & Closet Hardware, Exterior Areas & Finishes, Log Package, and Supervision.
