Lincoln Logs provides a cost effective log home package. We sell
only what the customer cannot purchase directly from local building
suppliers…exterior log walls and optional interior log walls plus
the materials necessary to complete the erection of the log walls.
Most of our competitors sell a variety of building materials along
with the log kit; trusses …decking … roofing…insulation…interior
walls…windows…doors…flooring and other items. Some buyers think
that such a package is beneficial to them. IT IS DEFINITELY NOT!
That is why we furnish only the log product. That is the most
economical way for the buyer. Let me explain why.
In many cases, additional material being shipped, require an extra
truck…at extra cost to the buyer. Manufacturers providing these
options often ship a lower grade material than your customer may
want. Should the buyer wish to return any part of the purchase, it
becomes impractical because of the distance from the supplier from
which it was purchased. Finally, be assured that no manufacturer
will sell any item without a markup to cover his profit, handling
and purchasing costs. Let us show you how you can purchase
materials locally from Lowes, Home Depot or a local building
supplier at the same price manufacturers can purchase for, while
selecting the quality which suits your needs.
Next consider the necessity of storing these materials that would
arrive at the same time the log kit arrives. Unless stored properly
in a building that offers protection from the elements: trusses,
doors and decking warp, windows break and material is often stolen
from the job site. Since most buyers do not have a secure dry
storage place, it is only sensible to purchase “finish” materials as
they are needed…locally.
You will save money by purchasing locally…not be required to store
materials… and have reduced shipping costs.
