What Sets Us Apart

cedar log homes quality materialsKatahdin Cedar Log Homes was founded in 1973 and is a leading manufacturer of log homes worldwide. From the very beginning, we’ve been committed to helping our customers make their log home dreams a reality. To do this, we constantly look for new ways to combine the finest materials, quality craftsmanship and expertise to create your log home.

What makes Katahdin different?

Our materials set us apart. Katahdin uses only Northern White Cedar, a superior wood known for its natural insect protection, low moisture content and natural sustainability. From Andersen windows and ThermaTru Doors to a superior insulation package, Katahdin carefully chooses materials of the highest quality and value to construct our log homes.

Our people know their stuff. From our award-winning in-house design team and our skilled mill operators, to our professional dealers and support staff, we can walk you through the seven steps to making your log home a reality. That’s why we’re confident enough to offer a 25-year warranty on our homes.

Building “green” is not just a marketing trend. Call us thrifty, but we Mainers have a long tradition of ‘waste not, want not.’ From Katahdin’s zero waste manufacturing, biomass boiler and corporate commitment to the environment, we think we’ve been on the right track for a long time.

We help you accomplish your dreams. House plans provide inspiration and we have a huge selection of layouts. Or opt for a custom plan. Our team can help you define your lifestyle so that you build exactly the home you need, now and in the future.

Our ‘builder friendly’ approach saves you time and money. Our precision manufacturing process makes construction easier for your builder, and we are nationally recognized for our superior builder training and support.

An open invitation to inspect our work. Katahdin is committed to helping you experience log home living personally. Year-round we offer open houses, seminars, home shows and other events to let you see, touch and live the Katahdin difference. We provide plant tours for visitors to our Maine facility too!

Compare Log Home Builders

At Katahdin Cedar Log Homes, we feel that it is important that you comparison shop – after all a log home is a significant investment! We also feel that it is important to compare apples to apples, to get the best idea of what you are getting when you work with us versus one of our competitors.

The Katahdin Challenge

We’ve developed this simple worksheet to help you compare each of the features of a Katahdin Cedar Log Home with our competitors. Please feel free to use this as a guideline to ask questions, understand components and be sure of the quality of your log home. We feel confident that once you’re able to compare apples to apples, you’ll see the advantages Katahdin offers in quality, materials, service and price.
