|Log homes by B&H?? Who is B&H? We are located in Fredericksburg, VA, with over 25 years experience in the manufacture, design and sale of log homes and log cabins. We no longer manufacturer log home kits but have established relationships with the most modern, dependable mills in New England and Canada - "White Cedar Country." We now offer log homes and cabins made from popular, lower cost White Pine and we are expanding our product line with dove tail corners, butt and pass corners, saddle notch corners and a variety of log profiles; all in addition to our classic post and beam construction of log homes with 8"x 8" corner posts. B&H is not a general contractor. We do not build log cabin homes or log cabins; however, you will find in this site a directory of experienced, independent log builders (use your browser's back button to return hre). It is likely that one or more of these log builders will bid on the construction of your dream log home. When you order a kit from B&H, a company representative will be on site to receive the delivery.|
Exports to other countries: B&H exports log home and log cabin kits. In fact we have designed and delivered log home kits to several foreign countries. Working closely with a Korean client, B&H designed a multi-story commercial building with the White Cedar log walls supported by steel girders.We are now working with a mill that has designed and delivered log kits to Greece, DePalm Island off Aruba, Holland, Japan, Germany, Canada, Haiti. Here are photos of a log kit delivered to Ireland and a Iog kit delivered to Israel (use your browser's back button to return from any link in this paragraph) . Each export kit is designed in close consultation with the customer and with sensitivity for local customs. Believe it or not, the log office building to the left was constructed in downtown Seoul, Korea, on a lot valued at $1,500,000.
|Custom designs: Custom log home designs and construction drawings are a B&H specialty. Rarely does a log home company ship the same design more that once. The best way to start your custom design is to find an existing floor plan that is close to what you have in mind, mark it up with your changes and bring it to us. Or, just bring us a free hand sketch. Answer a few questions and we will give you a firm quote on the log kit and begin preparation of the construction drawings. The log golf club house is a custom designed structure by B&H in close consultation with the client. Remember, we do not supply any building materials you can purchase locally. We are convinced you will save money purchasing locally, plus, the materials are delivered as you need them.|
|Contemporary designs: B&H Cedar Log Homes offers contemporary log homes and traditional cabins. Characteristics of a contemporary log home include ceiling heights greater than 8 feet, large fixed glass windows, open s pace and frequently a split floor plan (master bedroom at one end of the log home and guest bedrooms at the other end of the home) A contemporary design is often described as "light and airy". The home on the left is our 2300 square foot contemporary model log home, "Sandy's Joy", located a short distance from Fredericksburg, VA.
