Blue Ridge Log Cabins was incorporated in June of 1992 in response to a strong market demand for log homes to be built faster and more efficiently. The obvious choice was to build these homes in a factory setting away from damaging weather.
Among the inherent advantages to building a log home in a factory is a more uniform product with a guaranteed price. With 90 to 100 percent of the home built in a factory, customers can have peace of mind knowing exactly what their home will cost. Another advantage of building a log home in a factory is not having to rely on specialized, expensive and difficult to find builders and sub-trades to finish your home.
The next logical step in the evolution of Blue Ridge Log Cabins was to build larger plans for second and in some cases, primary homes. In this case, multiple sections are assembled to make a more spacious home, with some models approaching 3,200 square feet. In developing this product, the company decided to build to modular/systems built specifications, which meet state code requirements. This incorporated a number of key advantages, including access to more traditional financing sources as well as a home equal to (and often better than) site built homes in quality and value.
The future history of Blue Ridge Log Cabins will be one of increased quality and product offerings coupled with customer satisfaction and comfort. We stand ready to help you reach your dreams of owning a log home.
