Because the cost of your log home, log cabin or timber frame home is not determined by one specific factor, the multifaceted question is challenging to answer definitively. The location of your build, complexity of overall design, and preferred level of finishing touches are the main areas that will have the greatest affect on cost. Once your local Timberhaven representative better understands the scope of your project, an estimated cost can be derived.
The cost of your log home, log cabin or timber frame home is contingent upon the following conditions:
Location: How much will this log home cost?
The Laws: Local building codes, regulatory requirements and insurance requirements will also vary from region to region. Compliancy can be costly.
Construction Site: The natural and/or artificial physical conditions of your land may have an impact on the overall cost of construction.
Complexity: How much will this log home cost?
Solid Foundation: Your log home, log cabin or timber frame home can be built on any type of foundation. From the most expensive to least expensive, your options are basement, crawlspace and slab.
Size Matters: A larger home will generally be more expensive than a smaller one.
Design Complexity: What size logs and corner assembly do you prefer? (Again, bigger is more expensive.) Does your design feature bump-outs, cantilevers or varied rooflines? Does it include dormers and/or gables with decorative trusses? How many bathrooms? All of these factors must be taken into consideration when calculating the cost.
Finishing Touches: How much will this log home cost?
Interior finishes: Does your dream home include custom cabinetry? Will you have granite, quartz or laminated countertops? What about professional appliances suited for a gourmet chef? Flooring options are endless and costs are dissimilar.
Windows: A vast wall of glass and/or an upgraded window package will most definitely increase materials costs as well.
