Are your log homes more expensive than any other type of home?
Log homes typicaly have the myth of being more expensive and in most cases they are, but imagine for a moment that if you put as much wood, tile, and hardwood in a convential custom home you will have as much as a log so in answer to the question bottom line if you compare equal to equal they become the same cost.

How much does custom design cost?
Our custom design is free in affect. That is we work with you on your custom design, send it to our drafts people for prelems then to final plans. We ask you pay for this process but when you sign a contract with the company the total amount spent on plans will be deducted from your total cost. Thus in affect free.

How much per square foot do you charge?
Cost per square foot in a log package is hard to determine. For example use a log shell of 30'x 40' with 9 corners, 17 windows and door openings, 1 ridge pole, 4 perlins, shed dormers with log supports and a half loft with stairway. Then take that same 30'x 40' log shell with 4 corners, 8 window and door openings, 1 ridge pole, 2 perlins, framed shed dormers, half loft with I-Joist const. and a log stairway. As you can see we have the same size house but the cost of the first will strongly exceed the cost of the second. We belive the best way to quote a log shell package is to sketch out what you are wanting and price it on a one on one basis.
