What Now SignSo, what’s the next step?

This question is one of the most often asked.  We offer a few different options for proceeding as there are many aspects that need to be carefully considered.  That said, we would like to mention three things that stand out as important, “next steps.”  This stage of the process should be one of the most informative, exciting and hopefully enjoyable times to discover more about your Custom Timber Log Home!  They are…

  1. Order a Preliminary Drawing:

    With the Preliminary Drawings, you’re one step closer to building the log home you’ve always wanted.  With these larger format drawings, usually 2′ x 3′, you can modify a standard design of your choice and work towards the final layout of your new log home.  Once you are finished, you’re then ready for a free estimate, and the preliminary drawings will be delivered via mail or PDF to email for review and approval.

  2. Receive a free estimate of a log home design already in mind:

    If you already have a design in mind, simply sketch it out, or copy the drawings and send them over for review by our design and pricing staff.  Upon preliminary approval, you will receive a detailed job cost estimate of your log or timber home design.

  3. Schedule a Planning Consultation:

    With a Planning Consultation, we will schedule a time where we can discuss the finer details of the log home or timber home construction process and what to consider when modifying a design.  We will also cover important things to consider when choosing amenities and options, establishing and staying on budget, obtaining financing, and much more.

Also, if you haven’t already registered with us, please do so.  This will open up a ton of information that is generally not available to the public, and will also allow for more access to restricted areas.  As always, if any of this seems overwhelming, or if you need help in any area of design or build, info or planning, feel free to give us a call and we will do our very best to help in any way we can.

Thanks, and we are thrilled you are considering what we consider to be the very best of the best when it comes to log and timber homes. Happy Planning!

      Hi Steven,

      Would be glad to give you a price on a home matching those specs. Is there a particular model you have in mind, or perhaps a sketch or two of your ideas? If so, let us know or shoot them over. We can get you a ball-park price as soon as possible. Feel free to email us at [email protected] with your ideas. Would love to hear what you have in mind.

    Just spoke with Bo. Looking for turnkey costs on a home similar to the Hawks Bluff design on Battle Creek Log Homes website. I need a rough estimate for turnkey as my lender wants a finished home price and I can’t seem to find a contractor in my area to give me that. Hopefully it will work out that I will be working with you guys. I have a somewhat strict budget to work with, but am flexible on home size.

    Would be interested in getting price for “Hillview” plan and also clarification of where door to bath is in master as it is not shown on the view plans. We are looking to build a one story home in the 1,500 to 2,000 sq ft range in middle Tennessee.
