In-house Floor Plan Design and Drafting
When you begin thinking timber frame or log home design in building your new home, it’s nice to know that you don’t have to start from scratch. It’s also nice to know that you aren’t alone. Honest Abe Log Homes offers many choices in log home packages. These selections make the planning and building process more understandable and less stressful for the first-time homebuilder.
“Here at Honest Abe, we strive to have the best quality in every process from log manufacturing to providing blueprints and construction guides,” said Fred Kendall, the design manager and a 30+ year employee at Honest Abe’s headquarters in Moss, Tenn. “Honest Abe offers more complete packages than many companies. When comparing price, it becomes clear that we have a larger quantity and more quality materials to include in our packages.”
Like any future homeowner, first establish some basic guidelines. The budget is probably the most important. Find a price range you’re comfortable with to help narrow down the selection. Next, decide on the total square footage for your log home. Lastly, choose a log profile. The profile is the determining factor in the overall look and feel of your new home.
