Nothing Quite Like Living in a Log Country Log House

Take a look at one of the beautiful finished log houses from Expedition Log Homes. This gorgeous home is one of the many custom log home building projects done by expert craftsmen at Expedition Log Homes. But how do you get such a beautiful, original home design? First of all, having a detailed log home plan is the most crucial aspect of the building process. With so many great log home floor plan designs out there, how do you choose just one? Well, when you have log home floor plan experts like Expedition Log Homes, thankfully, it can be made easier on you. You can begin to figure out your own log home floor plan by deciding on a list of must-haves in your floor plan. When you think of all of the things that must be in your log house, what would they be? You can write out a list of the must-have items, for example, a large kitchen, and three bedrooms with three bathrooms. Then, you can draw out a rough sketch of your ideal plan and layout.

Once you have a good list and a rough sketch, you can take it to the designers of the company who can work with you to find the model that closely matches your ideal log house layout. The plan that is closest to your concept may need a few alterations, but eventually it will be exactly what you desire. A good tip for when you are in the planning stage, be sure to be clear about your ideas, and vocalize if you don't like something or want something a different way. It's important to have your house exactly how you want it since it's an investment of a lifetime. The company wants you to be happy with your finished result, so they will work with you to make sure that everything is up to your expectations.

All of the logs used in the log home building packages from Expedition Log Homes are kiln dried, making them extremely resistant to mould and insect infestations. Their natural cut logs are perfectly placed in their log home builds, using handcrafting scribe methods. All of the materials the company uses in log house construction, come from sustainable tree plantations. These tree plantations adhere to strict guidelines which cut down on waste. The logs are cut with a drawknife, which also tends to cut down on the amount of waste, but all of the scrap pieces of wood are also used to make wood chips and other products. The company also offers half logs, and the fully rounded logs in their building packages, which offers the client options. These logs will end up costing less in the long run, because take fewer logs to complete the home build. Most people probably wouldn't even be able to tell the difference from the outside either. The cut logs still have all of the same benifits and properties of a full log too.

Log house construction is one of the best ways to build a home or any other structure. Their strength and durability is profound, and there are even log houses and buildings that have been standing well over 500 years. Log home building packages are a great option for people who want to build the log home of their dreams. They also give people the option to construct the package themselves, which can be a great experience.
