Designing Your Custom Log Home
All of our log homes are custom designs. The major cost of designing and engineering a new log home is in complying with the requirements for the building location to include: Seismic Zone, Snow Load, Building Site Slope, Wind Shear and Current Building Codes.
Our design department will work with you to create the exact floor plan that meets your needs. Customers often ask us to modify one of our standard plans or they give us a floor plan that they have found in a magazine or newspaper. Sometimes they supply us with a floor plan from another manufacturer.
Another way is the customer sketches out something for us to design.
As you can see, there are many routes to follow. Remember that A Century Cedar Log Home is a custom home designed expressly for you.
