A pre-built log home is first constructed by a manufacturer and then disassembled and shipped in numbered pieces to the consumer, according to Deadwood Log Homes. Shipping of pre-built log homes to consumers is done in sections, rather than log by log, states Cozy Cabins.
The Amish Cabin Co. constructs fully assembled log cabins in modules, then ships the modules in log cabin kits to the consumers' sites, where purchasers may assemble the homes themselves, the company states. Amish Cabin also delivers some custom fully assembled cabins to customers, ready for move-in the same day.
Customers still may need the services of a contractor for site preparation, foundation and driveway work, and utility connections, according to Meadowlark Log Homes.
