Frequently Asked Questions about Log Cabins

We have local sources for these items to save you money and allow you to customize your home to your exact specifications.

- Are your logs dry? Are they kiln-dried?
Our logs are dried to 19% moisture or less. We have comparable shrinkage to a conventional home. Other companies leave up to 10,000 lbs of water in their logs in an average home. We have no screw-jacks to adjust or springs to account for the shrinkage. We build a quality home you can enjoy for generations to come.

Local knowledge of the building trades and subcontractors in your area, personalized service, and an interest in building an airtight, energy-efficient home are a few of the many reasons to choose us. We live near our customers. We’re not out of state.
- What sets River to River Log Homes apart from other log home representatives?
Most log home representatives’ top priority is to get a deposit and sell you a log home. We want to gain a satisfied customer, a friend, and a reputation for building quality log homes at competitive prices.
