I first met Monica in Feb. 2011.  She had  been talking to a friend (log home builder in New Hampshire) whose business was unfortunately a casualty of the times.  My friend introduced us and the rapport was great from the start.  After doing this as long as I have it is clear that even in tough times it isn’t going to make sense to take on a project if either the builder or owner don’t have a good feeling about the other.

It was obvious from the beginning that this was going to be a custom designed log home and the budget was going to be tight.  Right from the start Monica was open to a couple of small design changes that afforded us the ability to design the project so as to be friendlier to the budget while not taking anything away from the original concept.  That isn’t always possible but this home provides a good example of where that can work and in the next blog I’ll show specifically what was done.

Welcome to New England Log Home Builders

What We Do and Don’t Do 

New England Log Home Builders does not sell log homes.  Many manufacturers sell log home kits.  At New England Log Home Builders we are builders of log homes.  Instead of selling a kit from one company we focus on constructing the log home after the manufacturer and model have been chosen.  Over the years we’ve built log homes for about a dozen different log home manufacturers. 

Who We Are 

New England Log Home Builders is a small contractor/subcontractor.  At the head of the organization is John Pierce.  John began working in the log home industry in 1979.  New England Log Home Builders works with a small crew with four men at the core and try to never take on more than two log home construction projects at the same time.  Over the years John has found that limiting the work being done to only two projects results in a higher quality log home end product.

Where We Do It

In addition to having built Log Homes from Florida to Maine on the East Coast, John has built log homes in Asia and Central America.  Also one of the core group of four that makes up our team has built a log home in Europe.  At this time we’re trying to stay focused in New Hampshire and South Central Vermont.

A Little More About What We Do

New England Log Home Builders is happy to subcontract the dry-in process from the general contractor, or from the homeowner who wants to act as their own general contractor.  Depending on where you’re planning to build, New England Log Home Builders may be able to work as the general contractor if that’s what you’re looking for.  If you’re looking for a consultant either with a pen in hand or a hammer we can provide that service also. 
We also have experence with restoration from simply reconditioning the exterior of the home to replacing water damaged logs and complete sanding and resealing the interior.
