Traditional cabins - Contemporay style - Architectural design
Whether you desire a rustic log cabin for vacationing or a beautiful log house to serve as a full-time residence, there are so many great log house designs to choose from. There are also many log house construction companies to choose from as well, including Walnut Valley Log Homes based in Ohio. They also serve West Virginia and Pennsylvania too so if you live in those states you could have your log house constructed by their experienced craftsmen. Their log house designs are custom created for each customer, and they also have several log house designs and models to choose from making it easier to design your own log house. Their log homes are primarily crafted using pine logs, and they are constructed in a similar way to the traditional log houses and cabins that were built hundreds of years ago all across America. They have log cabin designs as well as luxury log house designs that have all of the comforts of a regular conventional home. At Walnut Valley Log Homes they strive to provide their customers with the best service in all aspects of the log house construction process.
You can look through their impressive gallery of log houses they've built over the years, the majority of them using pine wood while others are built with cedar and cypress wood. Most of their building projects take anywhere between 6 and 10 months to complete depending on the size and complexity of the log house designs. Even if you purchase a log home kit from another company Walnut Valley Log Homes will be willing to build the entire cabin or home for you. Because the stairways and railings are another very important aspect of each log home, the company also specializes in crafting beautiful railings and staircases for the interiors and exteriors of the home. This way you can create the perfect features for your lofts or decks that match the materials of your home seamlessly. While prices of log homes are difficult to narrow down, you can contact the company who has customer service representatives available from 9 to 5 Monday to Friday. You can call them directly, or you can also email them through their contact form on their website. By talking them about your ideas for a log house or cabin, they will be able to give you a ballpark estimate on what it might cost to build your home or cabin.
The more sure you are of your design and concept, the better. If you have a clear picture in your mind of what you want, try and find examples of this in photos, or find the log house designs closest to your vision on their website, so they have something to reference when they are trying to come up with a price for you. All in all, using natural building materials is what more people are leaning towards as we move forward and this includes using trees that are farmed in a sustainable way. One of the most sustainable ways to obtain the materials for your building project is to use trees or other natural materials from the land you're building on. This works perfectly if you have to clear an area of land to create space for a house and have viable trees covering that area. You could save money by using trees harvested from your own property too. If you don't have trees available to you, the next best thing is to source them as locally as possible. This way you support the local economy, and you receive better prices since the materials won't have to be transported as far.***
