ince the beginning of the Log Home industry, most log home manufacturers have not considered the importance of the construction service, only the log home materials. With each manufacturer using different techniques to construct their homes, each log system presents a unique construction challenge. Usually, manufacturers provide a list of possible builders to erect their product. StoneMill, however, has always been interested in assuring their customers obtain the construction services they need to install their log home materials correctly.
