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.
A 3000 sq.ft. log home we designed for Turkey, an unusual sight for that country! We are about to draft construction plans for this project. The inside style is leaning towards modern with steel & glass railings and steel stairs to complement the look.
This week we received a few photos of the large western red cedar log post and beam mansion we designed a couple of years ago. It is now in the finishing stage and I am to fly back to Haiti to view it late 2016 for its inauguration. Our clients are massively excited and can not wait to move in…
A small log post and beam project (Exterior Gazebo in Hubbard County, Minnesota) to be built with Minnesota native pine and white cedar.
This outdoor screened recreational space, is the latest addition to an existing log home boasting a massive stone fireplace, bar and sitting area to enjoy all year round.
We are just completing a log post and beam home of 3900 square feet, with slab on grade for a customer in Christchurch, New Zealand using local 16″ diameter pine.
This is the fourth time we are using this stunning RCM CAD house design, that has already been built in Texas as a log post and beam and in Pennsylvania as a timber post and beam construction.
This last Friday we had the great pleasure to meet our customers from Franklinville, NJ who flew in all the way from the East coast to discuss final changes to their fusion style log home. They love the design and we are now busy drafting full construction set of plans as they wish to start construction ASAP.
Last week, we completed the design and drafting of a 3265 square foot full scribe stacked log home using local 20″ midspan southern yellow pine.
The home is based in Moncks Corner, South Carolina and consists of four bedroom suites sitting on elevated crawl space with a porte cochere covered driveway, and a detached two car garage on a large private wooded lot
Earlier this week we completed a preliminary design for a beautiful vacation home in Green Lake, B.C.
This is a timber accent rancher, plus it has a full basement below for extended family and guests, with strong street appeal. This house is going to look gorgeous!
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.
Exposure to Radon gas in our homes is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, with 16% of lung cancer death directly linked to Radon.
This gas is the main cause of lung cancer for non-smokers.
However surveys tell us that only 1% of North Americans are aware of this danger.
