Make The Right Choice
As a log home manufacturer, we assist our customers in their search for a log home builder in two ways:
1.Providing them with the names and contact information of log home builders.
2.Providing training and support for all log home builders, including those on our builder list and builders that our customers have found independently.
Our Builder List
We accomplish #1 above by providing our customers with a Gastineau Log Home Builders List. There are two groups of builders on this list. Group A are builders that have built one of our log homes and have completed a Quality Assurance Visit. Group B is a list of builders that have not built one of our log homes but have completed a Gastineau Log Home Builder or Gastineau Log Home Construction Seminar. After they have built a log home and completed our Quality Assurance Visit, they are moved into Group A.
We accomplish #2 above in a variety of ways. These include:
“Construction Seminars.” These full day seminars are free to builders. The focus is on specific log construction details. Critical bidding information is also provided. Although consumers are also at the seminar, a separate “Builder Track” is offered during the day.
We offer a very detailed yet easy to read manual is available. A Toll Free Service number is available to your or your builder to ask any questions that may come up before or during the construction of the home.
In House Engineer
Our staff has decades of experience in log home construction. Each set of blueprints that we prepare is designed to meet the national building codes and is engineered to ensure structural integrity and a lifetime of worry free living. A MO licensed engineer is on hand to provide any custom engineering services required.
Quality Assurance Visit
One of our experienced Construction Specialists visit each job site during construction to make sure the home has been built in accordance with our plans, engineering and construction manual. GLH is the only company in the nation to provide this service. As a result, you and your builder have the peace of mind knowing that all the construction details have been properly followed. We encourage both you and your builder to be present during this QA Visit.
Our Responsibility Form
If you are planning to hire a builder to construct your log home, be sure to ask for our Responsibility Form. This can be used to obtain quotations from different log home builders to ensure that they are quoting exactly what you want them to include in their bid. It also ensures that all the builders are including the same things in their bids so you can easily compare prices. Give us a call to obtain a free copy.
Get Multiple Bids
It is the sole responsibility of the customer to arrange for the construction of their home. We suggest that you talk to several log home builders and other builders in your area. Always check their references and visit at least one of their structures if possible. It is always good to ask for bids from more than one builder. Remember, however, to always look at cost and at quality when choosing a builder. None of the builders on the Builder List are in any way connected, either financially or otherwise, with Gastineau Log Homes.
