Eight steps to a quickly built log home

Step 7 - Consider More Complete Systems:
While all log homes originate in a logyard or a manufacturing facility, some companies have taken this process a step further by constructing the majority of the home in a factory. These homes arrive at your building site as a series of panels or modules and are set by crane on a permanent foundation for finishing. Since factory-based construction and site preparation (installation of foundation, water, septic) take place simultaneously, homes are finished and ready for occupancy faster.

These new options aren't limited to above-ground construction. Foundations, for example, can arrive at your job site as a series of pre-cast concrete or pressure-treated wood panels. These are set by crane in a day, and they often provide better thermal performance than poured concrete or block foundations.
