CHOOSING YOUR BUILDING TYPE
TIMBER AND LOG CONSTRUCTION
Square timber post and beams create the handcrafted structure. Logs are then placed between the posts and all joints are sealed with chinking. The logs can be either round or flat on the exposed sides.
Traditional LOG CONSTRUCTION
Deerwood log homes are created using only standing dead trees that are hand peeled and hand scribed by our craftsman and fit to perfection. The log shell is first constructed in our log yard, then disassembled, moved on-site and re-erected by our own crews.
Conventionally-framed structures with log or timber features added to both the exterior and interior of the home. This allows you to have a traditionally-framed home with the added elegance of log or timber accents.
A log shell home includes just the log work. We prepare the window and door openings, trim the log ends, and prepare for framing.
IMAGINE YOUR DREAM HOME
ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN CONSULTATION
The first step in constructing a log home is devising a plan. Each homeowner has individual needs and desires, and Deerwood Log Homes is committed to customizing each home to its owner. Deerwood’s designers can work directly with the customer who has his or her own ideas about what a custom home should look like or we would be more than happy to consult with your own architect.
Our in-house projects have included everything from 600 square foot designs to 10,000 square foot “mountain mansions”. All of our custom designed homes take into account the specifics of location, topography, interior and exterior styles, traffic flow, and furniture arrangements. We often create homes for our clients with little more than an idea and a roughly sketched floor plan.
CONSTRUCTION DRAWING AND BLUEPRINT DRAFTING
We begin with a simple sketch at a scale of 1/16″ = 1′ to come up with the basic layout of levels, rooms and approximate size. We incorporate innovative architectural ideas to suit each client’s unique vision of their dream home.
Construction Drawings includes 3-dimensional modeling of final floor plans and elevations, cross sections, structural plans, furniture placement, and electrical plans. We will have plans engineered where required by local building codes for additional cost.
