Download the design questionnaire

There are many different ways to communicate your ideas, wishes and dreams of your perfect log, post & beam or timber frame home.

You may have drawn a sketch showing the rough layout of the rooms with dimensions and/or square footage planned. Maybe you found a “starter plan” from a log magazine, or our web site and want to add your personal touches to create a home that is truly yours.

We offer a design questionnaire to focus on your needs and wants, to help create a preliminary vision of your future home layout. It doesn’t matter how you came up with your ideas, or how you present them. We will take your dreams and ideas and turn it into reality.
