Agnes: I work for Appalachian Log Structures and we offer logs only in several sizes and shapes. We can pre-cut the log wall to your specifications or provide linear foot logs to be cut on-site with or with-out pre-cut corners, wire channel and or base logs. We also have a "Component Price List" where you can put together your own material list of logs, beams, rafters, caulk, gasket, lags, etc. For a partial list of materials we offer with pricing go to www.1800LOGHOME.COM. The ClearTreat, Borate pressure treatment we utilize on our wood products deeply penetrate the timbers and protect them from rot, decay and wood digesting insects. This organic and environmentally friendly treatment is a natural insecticide, preservative and fire retardant and does NOT discolor the wood. Let us know if we can assist you by calling 1-800-Log-Home. You are building in a beautiful part of the State and a wonderful place for a log home. Cheers - Donald

Be sure you know how to construct a full log home before jumping into it. We did a 9 in. sweedish cope full log home as a weather tight shell where Meadow valley capped the basement, errected the full logs, constructed the roof, tar/ice shield, 40 yr demensional Alge resistant shingled roof, installed all windows and doors and window shutters, soffet and facia, loft log joists and loft floor, log stairs to the loft and stairs to the basement, a 26 x 42 foot print with 2/3 loft for under $90,000.00.
We had seperate contractor do the 9ft high poured basement 10 inch thick and contracted local help to do the well and septic. We did high density fiberglass insulation 42 R value and had no problem meeting Wisconsin's energy requirements.
Keep your bottom logs at least 18 inches to 2 ft above the finished graded level, at least a 30 inch overhang to keep the water off the logs and gutters. We tapered the roof peak line on the ends which added greatly to the look. If you would like some suggestions on how to prep, stain and finish the logs inside and out send me your e-mail address.

I think you will find most companies are willing to supply a logs only package. I would suggest not only getting the logs but the accessories to put it together based on the companies joinery system. We refer to this as a log wall system.
You can't go wrong with any of the members of the Log Homes Council.
We can offer this too at Expedition Log Homes. When we do a "logs only" package it's typically any or all log components that you need for your home, meaning the logs, structural tie beams, log rafters, safety rail system, etc. Are you planning on building with a full log or 1/2 log building system? Since you already have your plans I'd just need a to scale copy to work off of. If you only have one set you can send them to us and we can make a copy and send the original back to you. We would just need more info. We would love the help! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
