Most log home enthusiasts dream for years about building a log or timber frame home, whether as a refuge for their family, a place to get back to nature, or a well deserved reward for a lifetime of accomplishment. And one of the most exciting aspects of the dream is the log home design
process – that’s where you get to exercise your creativity in creating the perfect home! But like everything else in life, cost is an inevitable consideration. The best way to avoid surprise and disappointment over the cost of your dream home is to establish a realistic turnkey budget in conjunction with the design of the home.
There are log home companies with a focus on design that will, at the outset of your initial design meeting, work with you to establish turnkey cost parameters that meet your financial expectations and ensure these are consistent with the design that you envision. Turnkey costs are impacted by many factors, including square footage of the home, “complexity” of the home design, the level of finishes that you choose for the home and the geographical location of your build site. The log home company that you choose to work with should consider all of these factors and guide you toward a design that meets your financial parameters before proceeding with the creation of the initial design sketches.
