AMERICAN LOG HOMES
Own an American Log Home. Live the American Dream.
American Log Homes, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, is built on the belief that you can have a high-quality log home dream without breaking the bank. This belief is what made us start a company that focuses on manufacturing quality log homes and having the best customer service in the business.
Our managing staff has a combined 150 years of experience, making our company one of immense knowledge and dependable solutions. Because of this, we have been a leader in the industry for many years.
About Our Process
American Log Homes does not sell directly to the public, only through our dealer network. Our trained dealers are armed with extensive construction knowledge and are able to answer questions and inform customers about our log homes. Our marketing and drafting departments are committed to providing our dealers the wealth of knowledge and industry experience American Log Homes has gained through the years. Working with a dealer allows for a clear and consistent line of communication throughout the entire process.
When beginning the process of putting together your log home, the initial step is selecting one of our 25 standard styles and working with our drafting department to make any modifications you might want. After that, you will be provided with as many sets of blueprints as are necessary, along with printed and numbered instructions for building the home.
Our kits will be shipped to you from our plant via flatbed truck and can be unloaded either by hand or forklift. We prefer to ship only the materials you cannot purchase locally; in other words, we sell what we manufacture. A customer then has the ability to negotiate with local building supply companies for all of the conventional materials. As a result, that customer will save money through those negotiations and will not incur unnecessary marked up prices and shipping charges.
Once all the materials are delivered, most builders and “do-it-yourselfers” should be able to follow the blueprints and instructions provided to construct their new homes. If not, hiring local builders and contractors will be your final step. And along the way, we at American Log Homes are always available with answers.
After your log home is complete make sure that you give us a call and send along pictures! We consider every home buyer to be a part of the American Log Homes family and really love hearing stories of life in your new dream home!
About Our Logs
American Log Homes are constructed with only native southern yellow pine logs. These solid logs ensure your new home is built to last and withstand severe weather. We intentionally work with this species because of its durability. Its load-bearing capacity and structural strength make it an ideal material.
The 6” high by 8” wide heart of the tree logs can be cut flat or round inside at no additional cost, allowing you to further customize your own home. These logs provide you high R-Value insulation, which ensures a warm house in the colder months and a cool house in the warmer ones. Essentially, by using our logs, you are building an energy-efficient and virtually maintenance-free dream home.
