Log Home Packages in Tn (Cabin Kits) 2016-11-30T11:59:46+00:00

Custom Timber Log Homes designs and produces the highest quality log home packages in Tn and the surrounding areas.  We began as log home builders in Tn and the Eastern half of the US.  This distinction sets us apart from the rest of the log and timber home industry. With over 35 years building log homes, our reputation speaks for itself.  See what a few of our past clients have had to say about us in the Custom Timber Log Home reviews area.

CTLH was started in an effort to provide log cabin kits of highest quality materials and service at a fair market price.  Our plans and kits are constructed to keep the builder the top priority, and are of the highest quality log home packages available anywhere.  From the selection of plans, quality of materials, all the way to the delivery of the log home, we make every effort to exceed expectations at every step in the process. From our staggered delivery option, to the arrangement of our construction documentation, our goal is making the entire process as easy as possible.

Each kit is unique and requires different materials and customization by each homeowner and to the property on which it will be constructed. Special orders are the standard here, and we pride ourselves on customization to fit each situation and homeowner.  From providing the correct length of deck supports for your specific foundation requirements, to including nails and hardware necessary to complete the construction of your custom log cabin, we stand behind what we provide, and we provide what is needed and expected.  This by itself makes us stand out from the competition.

We offer differing levels of kits, and can customize any of these to fit your specific needs.

We make our customers happy.  This is the only way we know how to do business. We’re up-front about everything that is included, and we make sure that the job can be done with what we send.

Q: What sets our packages apart?

A: We make sure you get everything you need, every time, with no exceptions. After all, we are in the log home business, not you. Because of this, we don’t expect you to know every single item that needs to be included in a log home. This means that if we forget to include something in the package as described, we absorb the cost to get it to you. We don’t hold you responsible because we forgot something.

When you buy a log cabin package from us, you can rest assured that you will get everything you are told, and what is needed to get the job done as described. While others may “nickel and dime” to get a few more dollars after the initial sale, that isn’t the way we operate. It’s on us to get it right the first time.
