The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

As we continue to plan (boy this takes forever), I need to find a log home builder for Northern California Tuolumne County.  We had one lined up, but he quoted extremely high and we're told sometimes builders do that when they really don't want the job.  We had another one lined up, but she's recently moved from the area.  Would love to find someone who can build us this home!

Finding good help is really tuff these days. In Colorado builders come from all over the world to build log homes. Don't be surprised if you have to pay over $200 / sq ft to build your home. Prices on most supplies have doubled in the past 5 years. If your workers have to travel to your job be sure to offer room and board and travel expenses to be paid for or they won't show. You are building in a rural location in beautiful CA and it's gonna cost a lot and take a long time!
Let us know the size of heated square footage, basement area (finished?), porch/deck area and garage space. With seismic, permits, and site drainage issues in California, $250/sf for main heated likely. Basement at $175/sf finished, garage space at $150/sf, and add $25k for California engineering and permits. I have good people in the region if this smells right and your style is close to my offering.
