The Topeka is a PREMIUM model manufactured with 70mm (2-3/4″) thick wall logs and uses rafters instead of purlins and a 7/12 roof pitch. The main floor is 25′ x 40′ = 1000 sq’ with a lofted area of 21′ x 25′ = 525 sq’ for a total of 1525 sq’. The living room has a vaulted ceiling of 17′, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bath, utility room.

Includes exterior & interior walls, windows & doors with hardware and mortised locks, deadbolts & keys plus interior doors with hardware and trims.
The Topeka can be insulated on the interior or exterior. When insulated on the exterior we provide a FREE upgrade to vinyl windows reducing maintenance. Metal brackets are used to mount 2×4 studs on the outside and the exterior is covered with the finish of choice; vinyl siding, composite materials or stucco. Maintenance free exterior and an all wood interior.
Tip: Board insulation can be installed between studs, apply stucco wire and stucco over the studs. High density board insulation has an R-value of 6 per” = R-24 plus the thermal mass rating for the 2 3/4″ log of R-12 = R-36.
Tip: Mount studs with a 1/2″ space between studs and logs to feed electrical wiring, no drilling required.
The Topeka can be assembled in 15 days with 4 people and passes structural requirements for building codes. Modifications may be required for earthquake, heavy snow load regions and hurricane zones. Approved structural engineered drawings available on request for a fee.
