OAKFIELD — A log home manufacturing company in northern Maine has won a contract to build homes for a new real estate development in China.

Katahdin Cedar Log Homes in Oakfield will supply cedar log-home kits to a Chinese real estate development company for a new lakeside development in southwest China.

Company President David Gordon says he plans to ship a 10,000-square-foot reception center to China by the end of January that will be assembled on the shores of a lake in Chengdu.

Gordon says the Chinese developer plans to sell lakeside parcels to buyers who can then purchase the Maine-made cedar-log homes for the equivalent of $375,000.

Gordon tells Maine Public Broadcasting Network the ready-to-assemble homes will be packed into crates and shipped to China, where they will be assembled.
