Log Home Money Saving Tip #1 - Use a Stock Floor Plan
A custom-designed log home does give you that uniqueness but in most cases does cost more than a stock plan. One of the benefits of using a stock plan is that it's a design that's already been built so there is the less likelihood of construction errors. Also, there are usually cost-saving options built into the design.
We chose the Tall Timbers plan from Hiawatha and modified it; opening up the loft, bumping out the bedroom and reducing a closet in the guest room. These modifications made us feel we were still getting a custom-designed home but without all the costs associated with it.
