Our handcrafted log shell packages are optimized for finished construction by your contractor. In addition, one of our builders oversees the reassembly of the logs and our office provides ongoing support until your home is completed. You’re not just buying a log home. You’re buying the entire and unique experience of designing and building a log home with Lake Country.
We love photographs of our log homes. You’ll have so many memories of your home being built!
This is one of our favorite vantage points. The homeowners will spend so much time in the kitchen / great room area looking out through their prow windows at the incredible scenery surrounding their log cabin home!
What a beautiful day and what a great location to be setting up a log shell package!

Here’s a great photo of one of our builders landing a handcrafted log. You’ll notice that the slings are left on the logs. This is because they’ll be needed to disassemble the log shell package prior to loading and then again when they’re unloaded from the truck for reassembly at the clients building site.
We’re starting on a new Douglas Fir log shell package which is going to a lakeside property near Kamloops, British Columbia!
