Understanding Installation by Product

PrecisionCraft offers clients a wide range of product styles for constructing their homes.  Some prefer a milled log while others like timber frame.  Once you decide the style and amount of wood which will become your home, what is the journey from raw log to installation?

Milled Log Homes

When you choose to build a milled log home, the journey is quick and precise.  Your home’s design is transferred from concept to detailed construction drawings and shop specifications.  Computerized machines use these specs to cut your home, one log at a time, while pre-drilling for our patented non-settling system.  Each log is bar-coded and bunked with logs that will be erected at the same time.  The bunks are shipped to the job site where PrecisionCraft’s professional stacking crews erect your log home on the foundation.  Watch a video of this process.

Handcrafted Log Homes

The beauty of handcrafted log homes is found in the size and rustic nature of the logs.  This look is achieved by hand-pealing the logs and cutting each notch by hand. With a PrecisionCraft handcrafted log home, detailed construction drawings are used by our seasoned handcrafters as they cut and place each log expertly into place, right here on our lot.  Once our craftsman have the logs together, they drill for our Handcrafted Non-settling System.  Then, just as they get it put together, they disassemble the home directly onto the trucks which will transport them.  They then travel to your build site and begin the task of installing the logs on your foundation, including the steel pipe and caps that prevent your home from settling.

Timber Frame Homes

Timber StructureYour timber frame home begins in much the same way as a milled log home, however this time the detailed drawings are used by a Hundegger machine which will cut the detailed arches and angles that make a timber home so beautiful.  These timber pieces are hand-fitted by a talented crew of woodworkers using modern Timberlinx connectors and wood peg covers.  Once the timbers are perfect, they are disassembled and sent to your site.  Once again PrecisionCraft’s professional crew will arrive at your site with the timbers and assemble the frame.

Hybrid Homes

We specialize in the combination of log and timber elements within the same structure.  Design, production and installation of the logs and timbers are seamless which means that your hybrid home will stack efficiently and match your design specifications.
