Foundation for Certified Cabins

Sill Plate Requirements
Log cabins going on foundation require pressure treated sill plates. Anchor bolts must be counter sunk and be cut flush with top of sill place.
Installation crew will fasten cabin to sill plate before installing bottom row of log siding. The two halves of the double cabins are lagged together.
Delivery of Cabin
Log cabins are delivered on large truck and trailer. These trucks require good access roads.
Crane Required to Install Cabins
Cranes are required to install cabins on block foundation. Our double wide cabins include $1,500 for crane cost. If you wish to provide the crane, we can deduct $1,500. Our single wide cabins do not include crane cost in base price. If crane is needed for single wide cabins, the crane cost will be added to price.
Space Required for Crane
A crane normally requires an area 40' x 40' next to the foundation. This area needs to be completely clear overhead, including power lines and tree branches, and must be decently level grade. It is a good idea to have the crane operator or anther experienced person check out the area before delivery.
