General Construction Information

Many of our log home dealers are also builders, capable of handling the complete construction of your Katahdin Cedar Log Home. Others can help you find capable local craftsmen. If you enjoy the idea of doing it yourself, and would like to build your own home, you'll be pleased to know that many of our log homes are constructed by the owner. All of the special cuts are done at the manufacturing plant, so very little cutting must be done on site. Doing it yourself will also help to cut costs.

How long it takes to complete your cedar log home will depend on the design you've chosen, the weather, the site, and the experience levels of the workmen. We normally estimate one (1) man hour per square foot of floor space on a purlin-type building. Truss-type buildings average three quarters (3/4) of a man hour per square foot. This formula is a good basis for estimating the labor time required.

To estimate the cost for your completed cedar log home, consult local contractors and/or suppliers to get prices for the fixtures, appliances, heating and cooling systems, etc... that suit your individual tastes. Add these to the estimates for the construction/carpentry work and the package price for a reasonably accurate bottom line.
