Choosing a log home builder is one of the biggest decisions you will make when planning your log home's construction. What factors should you consider? Here are three tips that might help.
1. Take advantage of event opportunities. If a company is having an open house or a home tour, sign up. See if they have a tour of their mill or production facilities, too. Not only are these a lot of fun and will give you great ideas, but they will also go a long way toward helping you decide which log home builder is the best fit for you.
2. Do some homework and check them out. You would read reviews on a travel web site before you stayed in a hotel, right? Check out log home builder candidates’ past work and talk to their past customers for some honest reviews.
3. Make sure you are a good match. Does the company you are looking at offer the style of home you like (log profile, design)? Do they build in your area? And most of all, do they offer (or can they help you find) all the services you need to make your dream a reality? In the end, your choice will become clear. You will discover through your efforts the log home builder that can do what you want, where you want and how you want it done.
