Coventry Log Homes have been in business for over twenty years. All of the logs they use in their log home packages are pre-cut, numbered, and lettered at their factory exactly to your log home plan, which includes all the corners, all the windows and door openings, and all the gable logs. This saves you thousands of dollars on the construction side. Using pre-cut logs means that your log home will go up faster on the job, which also means you will get to enjoy your new log home that much quicker. With better log home quality construction, they use specialty equipment that is designed to make the cuts and notches exactly to the plan.

They use the best quality pine logs in the world, logs that are located within an 80 mile radius of their factory. Using better trees means that you get a better log home product. Along with the best logs, they make sure the logs are dry and stable. Coventry Log Homes is one of very few log home companies that certify the moisture of their loads. Their log homes and log cabins are 3rd party verified and designed to meet the criteria of a non-settling log home system to the standards of the ICC 400-2012 Standard on the Design and Construction of Log Structures.

Companies that use jack bolts to accommodate for their green wet logs expect you, as the customer, to adjust these for several years. This is something to consider when choosing your log home builder.
