Do you love log houses? If so, have a look at this beautiful log house from Expedition Log Homes. This gorgeous home is just one of the log house designs created by the company and built by their expert craftsmen. Chances are if you love log houses, you've dreamed of having one of your own one day. So if you're in the process of planning your log house, you'll want to get a good start on your design by looking at other log house designs for inspiration. Having a detailed design and floor plan is the most important parts of the log home building process. It may be difficult to choose only one single floor plan, but it can be easier when you know what you want. You can start out by making a list of items that you must have in your floor plan. You may want a large kitchen and a bedroom for each of your kids, or if you work from home, a nice large office space might be essential for you. You can also figure out your budget so you can figure out the size of home you can afford to build. Once you have an idea of the size of home, you'll want, this will help you narrow down the log house designs by size and number of bedrooms. You can also sketch a floor plan on paper from your own ideas or use a computer program like sketch-up to create the plan of your dreams.
Then, you can take these ideas to the log home building company of your choice, and they will either help you find the plan that is the closest to your concept, or they can create an entirely new floor plan for you. If you see a plan that's really close to what you want, you can also have the designers make a few adjustments to the plan to create the home you want. This log house you see here is a design from their collection called the Tadmor Springs log house. It's has a total 2,727 square feet with 1,932 square feet on the main floor and 795 square feet on the second floor. This floor plan includes two bedrooms and an office space as well as two living rooms on the main floor and an open loft area on the second floor. The living area also features cathedral ceilings which are always nice in a log house, and the balcony on the upper level looks over the main level connecting them to each other. The upper level features the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom creating some nice privacy. The other bedroom and office are off on one side of the home on the main floor with the living area on the other.
Expedition Log Homes uses kiln dried logs in all of their log home building packages. Logs that are properly dried will be resistant to mould and insects which will keep them strong for years to come. The company uses hand scribing methods for all of the logs in their homes which gives them that classic and traditional log house appearance and all of their materials come from sustainable tree plantations. They also offer half logs which give the appearance of fully rounded logs for a lower price than the full logs, but you would still get similar benefits to full round logs. Some people prefer to use half rounded logs in their home, so they have the rounded log look on the outside with a flat wall on the inside.
