I found 1 job tile contractor is needed https://25pros.com/price/
We are thinking of doing the same. We have been in contact with Steve at Wholesale Logs. You can search them out on their website. He was very helpful and it looks to be considerably cheaper than the kits. We visited two companies, Southland Log Homes and Golden Eagle who sell the kits, expensive and we have a very strict budget. We are located in IA and are currently planning on building in the next couple of months when we break out of our freezing weather.
You're correct. Log home kits can be very expensive. We looked into several log home companies, some of them quoted us a price more than twice what it actually cost us to build using a contractor who took our plans and ordered the logs needed from a local mill. The house turned out better than we could ever have hoped. Do your research and check out all your options.
Thank you for your response. Didn't think this would be some overwhelming. We are in the middle of a freeze which doesn't make it any better. So you just hired a contractor, gave him your design and he ordered logs? Did he also take care of windows, doors, etc.? We have gotten bids for septic and well. Need to get one for the basement. My husband has his own business and does a lot of metal fence, iron and specialty work so at least he knows the ins and outs of construction more than me. I just want it done lol. Your home is beautiful!
Thank you. We love it!! Yes, our GC took care of everything from foundation to roof. We did, however, already have a septic system installed prior to construction. We did so because the permit that came with the lot was going to expire. If we didn't, we would have had to have our lot 'perked' again and be subject to the new codes. We were glad we did when we found out it would have been triple the cost for a septic system that met the new codes. Whew!
Hello...Merrimacloghomes.com will sell just logs based on your plans.
Hope that helps!
Thanks Carol. If you have any other suggestions, I am all ears.
