EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES:
We know you have questions and there is a lot to
learn, so we make it as easy as possible: Talk to a
knowledgeable member of the GLH staff. Look at
our website. Read our Oak Leaf newsletters. Look at
photos on Facebook. Examine floor plans. Decide if
you want log, post and beam or hybrid construction.
MAKE SOME DECISIONS:
There are some basic elements of your new home
that need to be decided upon such as overall layout
and size, size of log, type of corners, foundation,
those “must have” amenities, and how much you
wish to invest in your home. But don’t worry – GLH
will be there every step of the way to help!
If you do not already own a building site, now is the
time to buy land. Your land may influence your design
choices and help guide a few decisions.
EVALUATE YOUR COSTS:
Based on your design decisions we can now sketch
out a floor plan to help determine an overall budget.
We can start with one of our 70 standard plans,
modify an existing plan, or create a unique design
built just for you! This is where we get into all the
details, as your unique design and finishing choices
will drive your overall budget.
