To live in a log home is to return to the pleasures of an era gone by
Appalachian supplies an extensive range of kit home packages. In addition to our standard designs, Appalachian offers a customer design service using a 3D Object Modelling CAD System which allows a rendered image of your new home. Our standard designs can be modified and will attract a design fee.
