Log Home & Timber Frame Home Plans
The first step in the log home or timber frame home planning process is to find the perfect plan. Many home buyers start by looking at floor plans in magazines, pursuing online resources, and/or ordering manufacturer literature. In most instances, it’s the picture of a home that will catch your eye and make you look closer at the floor plan. Ultimately, though, we encourage all of these aforementioned research methods.
If you subscribe to Log Home Living or Log Cabin Homes magazines (or simply choose a random issue off the shelf at Lowe’s or Home Depot), you will find a series of Timberhaven’s log home plans or timber frame home plans in these publications. Albeit the selections may be few, these plans are included simply to provide a sampling of what we can do.
In addition to the magazines, hundreds of additional log and timber frame home floor plans are available via on our website or our Log Home Design Center. Just click any areas of interest above to browse the vast selection.
If you prefer to review printed literature, our plan book illustrates over 50 full-color architectural renderings and floor plans of our most popular designs. Included are 7 NEW designs, our Sportsman Cabin Series, and some basic garages. Our plan book also offers tools like a planning checklist and a design checklist.
Whether you’ve found a canned-plan that is perfect for your needs, decided a completely custom design is required or haven’t even begun looking…. you should consider using a design questionnaire and checklist. It’s paramount that all pertinent considerations are addressed at the forefront of your planning process. Some things to think about include…
How do you want to live in this log home or timber frame home? Is this going to be your primary home or secondary home? What life stage are you planning for: young family, empty-nester, or retirement? What amenities do you need/want included in your new home?
Other basic design considerations include…
How many people will occupy your home? Are you looking for a rancher, cape or other style home? How much outdoor living space will you need?
A one-page design checklist is included with your complimentary copy of our new plan book. To get yours, simply click the PLAN BOOK image above.
Remember, finding the perfect log home plan or timber frame home plan is the initial step in bringing your log home or timber frame home dream to fruition. Take the next step today.
