Makwa Lake – Saskatchewan – Log Project

We completed design of this timber accent lake side vacation home a month ago, and the owner is getting busy with the concrete and frame work in readiness for the timber works arrival. This design is a bigger version of our Malta original design with added single garage and a large second floor to house the whole extended family. The property also has no basement given the proximity of the lake.

Top ten goals when designing your log or timber home.

1- Budget – Nothing is more heart breaking than designing a beautiful home that just got all you want, then get construction quotes… and find out you are way over budget.
First step before starting design is to inquire about construction cost at your building site and establish what you can comfortably afford without crippling your finances with a life time mortgage.
Building costs vary greatly depending on location.
