You made your decision; you are finally going to build that log home. Not just any log home, but that special creation you've held in your mind's eye for so many years. You have walked on those hardwood floors, gazed out from behind those oversized picture windows, cooked dinner, curled up by the fire, and even slept in that special home _ using that vivid imagination of yours. Oh yeah, you've been dreaming about your log home for a long time, and you have finally decided to make your dream become your reality.
We are going to assume here that you have already looked into your financing options and have a good idea of the amount of your budget you can apply towards the actual building cost of your new home. Begin with this amount and deduct 10% right off the top. You will thank me for this advice in the end. Everyone goes over budget during construction, even the financial nerds can't control every little detail that comes along. Take this net building budget and divide this dollar amount by the average square foot cost to build you got from the realtor or builder. Since I hope they gave you a low and high range this will give you two new numbers. These numbers are the low to high total square footage house floor plans sizes you should be searching for. If you choose to look at multi_level house floor plans then you will be comfortable on the upper level of this number since your cost per foot will be lower.
