  • We will access your total budget (not just what you intend to spend on your log home package), and tell you if your budget is realistic.

Testimonials
I was impressed at how well organized the erection crew from Nicola Logworks was. Despite poor weather conditions (rain, snow, and wind),the erection went smoothly.

Nicola Log Works has the ability to source and custom fabricate the materials required for the installation and the ship these components several thousand miles across the country where Nicola crew efficiently erected the structure. In the future I hope to be fortunate enough to work with Nicola Log Works and John Boys and I would not hesitate to recommend Nicola’s service to any one requiring wood or log structure work.
