Can I make an addition to a log cabin 2 Replies

Hi.  I have a smallish vacation log cabin.  I believe it is a kit home. We were wondering if it is possible to make an addition of a garage and great room (with living, dining and kitchen spaces).  Also a possible bathroom. Can this be done. If so should I be watching for anything in particular in the planning and building processes. ThanksContinue

Terrible customer service 42 Replies

Just finishing building our log home in NC. We found a great builder but Southland Log homes has proved itself to be a company that simply does not care once they sell you the logs. After buying they gave us a builder that wasn't even a licensed contractor who we eventually dismissed. When we called our project manager he had no idea what was going on and acted like he didn't want to know us. We are now building the garage and we found that we do not have all the materials to do so. This was a…Continue

True North Log Homes 1 Reply

I began my request for a refund with True North in September 2017. A November 2017 email response from True North offered to refund $1,118.43 representing the paid amount greater than 10% (which should have returned this immediately). The email stated True North retains the initial 10% contract deposit. I responded requesting a breakdown of the expenses as they seem exorbitant. Especially since we only went as far as the design stage.I sent another email in January 2018 stating my…Continue

They retailed for $1.89/each…Continue

Baseboards on Irregular Logs 4 Replies

What in the world does a person do about adding baseboards in a log home?  My logs are a variety of shapes & sizes, and this is my first time owning a log home.  What would you suggest, and better yet, anyone have photos???!!!  I'll include a photo of the bathroom we're currently working on, just as an example. Continue

Replacing windows 5 Replies

Hello!  We need to replace a bay window in our 30 year old log home.  We want to replace it with a picture window.  We received an estimate of $11,000.  That seems really high to me.  We live in NH.  Does anyone have any feedback as to whether or not that is a realistic cost to expect?  It is a large window, but...I find it hard to believe it costs that much to replace one window.  We plan on getting at least one more estimate, but I thought I would ask here as well.  Thanks!!  :)Continue
