Planning Your Dream Home

From the time you make your initial contact with us we are working with you to achieve your dream home in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible. Let the team at Footprint Log Homes make your dreams a reality.

When it comes to designing the perfect home, most of us need a little help, this is where the Footprint design service come in to play. Our design team will work with you to design your home through this phase of floor plan and elevations.Once this is done and we roll it over in to the formal purchase agreement the deposit you paid for this service will become part of the 10% needed for full construction drawings. There are many different ways to communicate your ideas, requirements and dreams of the perfect home, be it log, timber, post and beam or hybrid. A few points to ponder

  • Think about your lifestyle and personal requirements.
  • Do you have hobbies that would need their own space?
  • Do you need an attached garage or one that is connected by a covered breezeway? This could be large enough to accommodate the pantry and laundry.
  • How about a mud room to throw off your dirty boots in the winter.. or even to wash the dog!
  • How many bedrooms and bathrooms?
  • Think about separating the master bedroom from the guest bedrooms with living/great room in between!
  • How much storage do you need? it seems we never have enough and don’t forget the broom closet!

Imagine walking through your house, what would you add to improve the quality of life? If this is your retirement home think about eliminating stairs by building a single story home. If you need wheelchair accessibility we will draw the plans to accommodate that, ADA compliance. These are all things to think about during the design phase.

Footprint Log Home specializes in customizing your package whether it is developed from an existing plan or custom from your ideas. Remember, get the outside of the house the way you want it to look and compromise on the inside furnishings if budget is an issue; these can be upgraded at a later date, it will be more costly and difficult to change the outside appearance. The design service is aimed at focusing on your specific requirements to help create a preliminary vision of your future dream home. Customizing your home does not mean more $$$.
