From sentimentality attached to their current dwelling to financial considerations to the seemingly-daunting task of a new construction, there are numerous reasons why lovers of log cabins, log homes and timber frame homes may not actually own one. But, just because your existing home doesn’t incorporate the beautiful elements of logs and timbers doesn’t mean it can’t. Likewise, for current log cabin, log home or timber frame home owners who want to increase the size of their house, we have just the answer: log home additions.
Log home additions are a great way to take the existing structure you love and breathe new life into it! With options as varied and customizable as a new construction, there are virtually infinite possibilities for making this dream a reality.
Infinite Possibilities: Log Home Additions
When considering adding a log home addition to your home, the first thing to keep in mind is that you can truly make it your own. At Timberhaven, we still offer the same options of solid or Engineered Logs and timbers, just as we do with new homes. No matter what your style, log home additions can be fully customized to suit your tastes and complement your current home. The specialty log components will be manufactured to the same exacting specifications and quality as our new-construction homes. Additionally, all optional building materials are from the same reputable suppliers, like Andersen Windows, Therma-Tru Doors, Tamko Architectural Shingles and Schlage hardware.
Just like with a new log home, the layout and floor plan of your log home addition can be designed to fit your specific needs. Looking to expand your great room? Wanting to add a home office or art studio? Needing an in-law suite to take pressure off your marriage? We’ve got you covered! Whatever your goals and vision, we can make it happen and our experts will work with you every step of the way – from design to execution.
Addition[al] Considerations: Log Home Additions
As with any renovation project, there are always various factors to take into consideration. The layout of your existing home and the topography of the land can have a huge impact on the design of your addition. Zoning codes and local regulations can often factor in as well, though often not as heavily as with a new home construction. And, if your home is considered a piece of history, you may need to consult with your local historical society concerning any major modifications you want to make to the structure of the home.
Another aspect to bear in mind is the structural impact your desired renovations may have on your existing home. Will your new addition require the removal or relocation of weight-bearing elements? Will your deck need to be partially removed or reconfigured to fit the new addition? Whatever your specific considerations may be, Timberhaven authorized sales representatives and designers are always standing by, ready and eager to help find a solution. So expand your horizons (and your walls) today with a unique log home addition today!
