PREPARING YOUR BUILDING SITE

Now that your delivery date is confirmed be sure that the path to your site is free of any obstacles and that your foundation is prepared. It is best to get this done before the delivery date. Obstacles in the delivery path could result in overage fees.

ABOUT YOUR PRE-CUT KIT

While You are Waiting

If you have purchased a pre-cut Kit you can log into your account to view your do-it-yourself building instructions. Your plans contain helpful information such as site preparation guidelines for your specific design and a cut list that is used for taking inventory. It isn’t a bad idea to get acquainted with each step of the building process before the kit arrives.

We thank you for your purchase and we hope it will be a welcome addition to your home for many years to come!

  • ASSEMBLY
    Assembly instructions and paperwork will be on the outside of the kit. Save these important documents.

    The kit is strapped to a pallet which is not part of the kit — it can sit directly on the ground, be forked, pulled or pushed. The pallet is shrink wrapped with weights and shipping labels posted to it.
  • STORAGE
    Your kit will arrive in a breathable netting that can remain on the materials until you are ready to build. The best way to store your kit is in a garage or under metal roofing. The kits should be allowed to breathe. Wrapping or tarping them in plastic increases the risk of mold, decay, and damage to the lumber. The kit should be kept out of high humidity and be allowed to vent.
  • IMPORTANT
    Do not allow snow to sit on top of your kit. Kits are weather resistant but not weather-proof and can sit outside for up to ten days. Past ten days it needs to be under cover. Both rain and sunshine can cause damage to your kit—in warm weather, evaporation can cause moisture to get trapped in the lumber. It is best to keep your kit dry and well ventilated.

IF YOU ARE GETTING A TIMBER FRAME KIT:  Please note that deliveries of Timber Frame Kits differ from other, smaller kits that we deliver. A Timber Frame Kit comes in various bundle sizes and weights. These bundles are not shrink wrapped and do not come on pallets. It is suggested that you have bunks to set the bundles of material on, so they do not sit directly on the ground.


This kit will come on a 72’ truck and trailer combo. We will need to be able to park off the traveled roadway safely. JCS has its own equipment to offload the truck. We will need a minimum width of 18’ to accommodate our offloading equipment, consisting of a small forklift. There is a 2-hour window allowed for offloading, anything after that is $250/hour charged in 15-minute increments.
