"I had been investigating log home companies for over 2 decades, and very seriously the last 3 years. I had chosen another company at first but every tweak and change was extra money. It occurred to me one day that I was paying a lot of money for a product I really didn’t love. A flooring manufacturer I was working with suggested I check out Real Log Homes and he knew one of the local representatives. I did some looking and saw that I could get everything I wanted and that C.M. Allaire & Sons, a Real Log Homes’ Independent Representative was close to me. That meant a lot! C.M. Allaire also built a log home for my cousin in the 90’s. They’ve represented Real Log Homes for over 40 years as one of their first Independent Reps and they’ve built log homes all over New England. When the other log home manufacturer I was considering went out of business, it struck me that you don’t stay in business for 40 years unless you know what you are doing and provide a quality product. I went up to NH to make sure it Real Log Homes wasn’t just two guys in a garage cutting down trees. I toured the plant and met the team including their director of design, their sales rep, and the director of manufacturing. They were creative, very helpful and flexible. Even their input on everything “non log” was invaluable and greatly appreciated. I felt like I had partners helping me with the home, not just the logs. I returned with my wife and children to see our logs in production. I am forever grateful to Bob and the RLH team for letting us visit. We even had the dog with us! We covered all the concerns and took lots of pictures in the plant. It felt good to see the entire shop filled with our house. Real Log Homes’ Independent Representative, Dave and his crew at C.M. Allaire were the right choice too. I visited the other houses they were building, so the crew got to see a lot of me before we even signed the deal."
