Custom Log Homes

Creating a Design Plan

No two North Country Log Homes are the same. Each customer has his own unique requirements as determined by his personal preferences, budget, building site, and future plans.

You probably have an image of your future home design in your head already. Your rough sketches and notes are usually the starting point for our draftsman to begin work on the blueprints. To begin your project, a preliminary plan is drawn and sent to you for your approval or modification before the final drawings are made. Our designers will give recommendations to make your log home more practical, easier, and less costly to build. Once the blueprints are completed, then accurate costs for all materials and labor can be determined. The cost of custom plans is typically only 1/100th of the cost of the completed home; a small price to ensure the satisfaction that only comes from this personalized service.

Only Quality Materials Used

All of our log homes begin with a plan and the best trees available. We use hand-selected pine logs that are valued for their strength and appearance. Pine logs are available in 8, 10, and 12-inch diameters. All North Country pine logs are double tongued and grooved and saddle notched in the corners. In addition, they have keyways cut in the butts for secure joints and proper installation of doors and windows.
