Log Home Construction - The Process
The satisfaction of living in a beautiful and functional home of your own design is hard to describe. The floor plans on this web site are great starting points for generating ideas that will lead to your very own custom plan. The following is the typical planning process used by Tomahawk Log and Country Homes.
1. The custom planning process begins with your ideas and rough sketches. Primary views, traffic flow patterns, room locations, room sizes and house styles are taken into consideration. Initial budget discussions are also helpful in the early phases of your floor plan development.
2. TLCH's qualified sales staff uses your initial ideas, information and sketches to develop a scale drawing. Adjustments are made to assure a functional, buildable and cost-effective plan. This drawing will show room dimensions, window and door locations, and porch and deck sizes. After the scale drawing is developed, TLCH will prepare a material package proposal.
3. Preliminary blueprints are developed. Our design staff uses the latest CAD equipment to develop 1/4" scale floor plans and four elevations. This is when you, the homeowner, will make a small monetary commitment. This payment applies toward the purchase of your Tomahawk Log Home.
You will receive two sets of preliminary blueprints; one to keep and one to return to us with any final revisions that need to be made.
These one-time revisions are at no extra cost. These preliminary blueprints are helpful in acquiring building permits, procuring financing and obtaining bids from local sub contractors. Additional copies of the blueprints will be provided upon request.
4. Once your signed proposal and down payment are received, TLCH will produce final construction blueprints. These complete sets of working drawings include foundation plan, floor plans, floor framing, roof framing cross sections, elevations and the detail sheets necessary to build your new log home. During construction, Tomahawk Log and Country Homes will see to it that you have as many blueprints as needed (at no extra cost) and a detailed construction manual.
5. After construction documents have been completed, a full material list is generated.
6. Upon completion of the material list, the contractor will fill out the material delivery schedule and submit a job site map. After receipt of the delivery schedule, our staff will setup and stage the deliveries trying our best to accommodate the submitted schedule.
