We are extremely proud of the work we have done. Our past customers have also been pleased with our work and many have been kind enough to take the time to tell us about the work we have done. Those comments are shown below:
“I’ve been very pleased with the work that Matt has done on our lake cabin. He’s is a true craftsman, with many talents. He is not a big builder with multiple projects happening at the same time. Instead he focused on your home and takes the time necessary to get the job done correctly.” – Kevin
“My husband and I live in North Carolina. (I am a Minnesota native.) About three years ago I became very interested in log cabins and pursued this interest on the Internet. We received log cabin packages in the mail from all over the country. After much searching, I came across a log cabin called The Expedition by Real Log Homes and fell in love with it. This was the cabin I wanted to put on the part of the family farm I inherited in Minnesota. It was to be a vacation home/family retreat. After contacting all the Real Log Homes representatives in Minnesota, I finally settled on Lakeland Log & Timber Frame Homes. Through much discouragement and disappointment with another builder, Lakeland Log & Timber Frame Homes was a real “gem” of a find. The owner and builder, Matt Allen, won my confidence, as his real “down to earth” approach put my mind at ease. All the plans for our Expedition cabin came to fruition through our doing business with Lakeland Log & Timber Frame Homes via phone, e-mail, and mail. We had never met in person. Our cabin was built in the late spring of 2008. My sister, who lives on another part of the family farm, sent me pictues of our beautiful cabin! I couldn’t wait to get up to Minnesota to see it! When my husband and I got there and actually saw it, it was even better than the pictures. What QUALITY! What STURDINESS! It was beautiful! And all for a fair price! Matt Allen of Lakeland Log & Timber Frame Homes is an honest businessman who does people right, and he puts out a great product!” – Mary Underwood, Asheboro, North Carolina
“Our first meeting with Matt Allen was at a Log and Timber show in St. Paul, MN in the fall of 2005…. We are both very much the do it yourself people and intended to design and build the home ourselves. We went to the show with a few builders and log home companies in mind and went to the show with the intent of interviewing and finalizing our choice. However, we became discouraged after getting very few good feelings from any of the known companies. Everyone we talked to wanted to overshadow our role in building our home and place doubt in our minds by implying that we had to use their people in order to successfully complete a project. Then we meet Matt at his booth…right away we liked his down home (no BS) style and felt comfortable talking to him about our dream house. He wasn’t a slick salesman touting all the attributes of his product while badmouthing the competition. Matt’s approach was one of common sense and a genuine belief in the product combined with caring about the wants and needs of every potential client.
We went home with the feeling that we had found a partner in our venture. We took delivery of the log package in July 2006 and Matt and Kelly came to our ranch to help get the logs started and instead of just staying the half day that was “included” with the purchase of the home, they stayed an extra day to make sure that all of our initial questions and concerns were addressed and that the first strings of logs were properly in place. After they left, Matt was just a phone call away.
Our overall experience with Matt and Kelly was so positive that we encouraged friends to buy homes from Matt as well. Not only was Matt an advisor in achieving our dream, but he and his wife have become our friends as well. We would strongly recommend and encourage anyone that is looking for a log home to do business with him. – David and Tracie Day
