Bass Log Homes

Pinewood Construction

The Pinewood Series of homes are built from scratch, stick framed in the same manner as we would build a standard frame or brick home. The main difference is the exterior veneer. We generally use 2x8" pine log siding as opposed to brick, however, we can also use vinyl or masonite siding. All of the house framing is of standard construction, walls are 2x4's on 16" centers, ceiling joists are 2x6's on 16" centers, rafters are 2x6's on 24" centers. The Pinewood Series of homes are classified by lenders as "Homes", they are not pre-manufactured or modular/panel type homes. Each home is built individually---one at a time. It is for this reason that traditional lenders, (banks, mortgage companies), will finance the purchase of a Pinewood Series Home.

Pictured At Left, Poured Concrete Piers Are Very Useful On Property That Contains Severe Slopes, Or Has Unstable Soil Conditions. Unlike Concrete Blocks And Pads That Are On Top Of The Ground, Poured Concrete Piers Are Poured Generally 2' To 3' Below Ground Level To Form A Stronger Foundation Where Unstable Soil Conditions Exist.
