The PAN ABODE Experience...

1. Design a Home Package derived from one of our plans, or custom design a home packages to suit your needs.

2. Define the Materials used to construct your home and provide a guaranteed estimate initially, contract after adjustments are complete. This allows you the customer to more accurately plan the cost of your project. (Our published prices for material packages are based on a structural "dryed in" material shell. We can easily add or subtract)

3. Prepare Highly detailed Construction Plans and documents. Material use sheets, and assembly instructions on how to construct your home. (this allows you or your builder to focus on building, not going to the store or wasting time wondering how to assemble things.)

4. Manufacture and Consolidate your Package Home Materials. Control quality of materials, inspect, wrap, organize, and prepare your materials for shipping. Beams and exposed elements are quality controlled and wrap protected to ensure premium finished assembly.

5. Shipping Coordination is scheduled for maximum use of onsite storage, scheduling for efficient labor dispersion, and for site delivery issues depending on remoteness or building site accessibility difficulties.

6. Provide Technical Support before and after delivery to ensure correct finished assembly. The hallmark of any good business comes right down to how you are treated, and the quality of the customer service you receive.

Quality Structural Building Packages

No matter what the size, specification or style, the common denominator of every PAN ABODE home is superior design ideas, manufacturing craftsmanship, personal service, and product quality. We have an industry-wide reputation for offering the best value in materials, construction, service, and every detail in between.

PAN ABODE quality starts with fine grain, appearance-select, tight-knot Western Red Cedar. Skilled manufacturing craftsmanship and modern engineering technology turn this fine wood into the sort of home a fine-furniture maker would build. Coupled with Douglas-fir structural elements, our homes are strong and they smell good.

Our building systems and company philosophy allow you unlimited choices in materials and design. Not only do we custom design your home or building, but we act as your personal consultant in selecting materials that fit your desires and budget.

Each PAN ABODE home, whether a standard plan or a totally unique custom plan, is individually manufactured at the time it is ordered. There are no "off the shelf" components and the materials for each home are specifically ordered to match your plans from our many suppliers or selected from our stock of cedar materials. Your wall timbers and/or cedar siding is precision milled so that every single piece is perfectly matched and easily assembled.

Shipped to your site

The materials for your PAN ABODE home are carefully hand loaded into containers or onto trucks for transporting to your building site. All fragile items are packaged for their protection and labeled. Your Douglas-fir glue-laminated beams are individually sanded, wrapped, and identified as to location of use. All construction parts are identified for ease of construction. You will receive copies of the working drawings, and a complete step-by-step construction guide. We consolidate and ship your materials as you need them to better suit your schedule.

At the end of the day PAN ABODE stands behind every element we provide. We are here to provide exceptional customer service and tech. support. And we strive to bring our customers the best value and quality in the industry.
