We built our first Real Log Home back in 1971. Since then we have helped hundreds of people realize the dream of owning and enjoying a beautiful, new log home. It is a dream that requires careful planning and attention to many details. With our expertise and your enthusiasm, we can make it happen. Put our experience to work for you.
Log Home Design Assistance
You might say that we have never built two log homes that are exactly alike. And that is the way we like it. No two people are the same and no two homes should be either. The process of selecting and designing a home is different for everyone. Some people can find the perfect plan among the wonderful variety of designs in the Real Log Homes Planbook. Others will describe to us their ideal home and we will present them choices from our hundreds of custom plans on file. Still others will come to us with a custom plan. We will then work closely with them to turn their ideas into a precision milled Real Log Home. In any case, our job is to take the time to help you select and design the home that is perfect for you. You should expect nothing less.
Log Home Estimating
While helping you through the log home design phase, we will be presenting cost estimates for the constructed shell with labor provided by our own building crew. As changes are made, we will show you how your changes affect the cost of the home. We can very accurately estimate the cost to build a “weather-tight” shell on your foundation, anywhere in New England. Costs to prepare the site, pour the foundation and finish the inside are determined using local subcontractors.
One decision you should make early on is whether to be your own general contractor or to hire a local general contractor. Should you choose to be your own general, it will be your responsibility to obtain estimates, and screen and hire all of the tradesmen that work on your home. If instead you decide to hire a general contractor, he will provide you with a complete home estimate using his own subcontractors. There are pros and cons to both approaches that we can discuss with you.
Log Home Financing
With log home popularity at an all time high, obtaining financing for your log home construction is now easier than ever. Over the years we have developed relationships with finance companies offering loan programs tailored to log home building. We will gladly share this information with you and direct you to the lender with the best program for you.
When you build a log home with us, you get a lot more than just logs. You get experienced service and a commitment to helping you make your log home building experience one that is both pleasurable and memorable. We are committed to your log home, from planning to completion.
