$46,700 Pre-Cut Log House Shell. This is The Wyoming Log Home
This $83,050 Wyoming is a spacious log home offers shed and gabled dormers in the upstairs bedrooms, as well as a lovely farmer style porch on the front of the home. This home has a total of 3 bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and is a total of 1,776 square feet. If you like a private kitchen, then this floor plan is for you. The kitchen is separated in it's own space, with an entrance out into the living room. While many modern homes of today are going with a more open concept floor plan, this log house design is more like a classic home from the 1900s, with separate functions for each room. The half bathroom doubles as a utility closet or could be the laundry room too. Having the rooms in a house do double duty helps to cut down on the amount of space required in your floor plan, and also cuts down on the overall cost of the log home building package. Generally, a good rule of thumb to remember is that the more corners you incorporate into your floor plan, the more it will cost to build. Also, building upwards and building a level on, or building a basement foundation rather than building out can save you money as well. Take advantage of the space and even a smaller log house can be very functional.
The cathedral ceiling that is featured in this log house is also a great feature that opens up the living space dramatically, drawing the eye up which creates the illusion of more space. As you will see in the plans, there is no designated dining room in the home, but a dining room could be worked into the plan with designers. Usually a space in the living room works good for a dining set and if the kitchen is large enough, which this one seems to be, you can always add in a kitchen table and chairs into the space as well. The nice deck on the front of the house would make for a lovely place to sit out and enjoy the outdoors, or perhaps a meal or cup of tea. It's nice that the deck is covered so it can be utilized all year long and become an extension of indoor living space. When you're building a log house, it's important to know what you want. Everyone has different needs and desires for a home plan, so it is quite important to consider all aspects of the design. This can be the most fun part for customers, but it can also be a bit tedious. A good place to start is to contemplate the things that qualify as essentials or must-haves in your house. How many bedrooms and bathrooms would be required? Do you prefer an open concept or specific rooms for the living space? Do you need a garage or a shop space? How much storage do you need? These questions will lead to other questions so it's a good place to start.
Building from log home kits makes log home building much easier than ever before. People are actually able to build their own houses from these kits and proudly live in them afterward. Of course, there are extra items that need to be purchased at the end of the build, which are good to know about so you can budget wisely. Things that are not included in log home kits are the appliances, the bathroom fixtures, cabinets and counters, and the foundation.
