The My Woodhome website is a great site to look if log cabin living is something you are considering or thinking about. Log home topics you will find on the site include log cabin plans, log cabin budgeting, log home design and log home floor plans. You will also be able to find information on log home builds, log home furnishings, maintaining a log home and log home building companies and products. On the log home site, one of the first questions you will be asked by an interactive quiz will be whether or not you have your piece of property to build your log home. If you don't, they can offer suggestions on how to start the process of purchasing a piece of property for your potential future log home.
Some of the tips they offer on purchasing a piece of raw property are very useful. You will quickly realize that selecting the site for your future log home is as important to your log home project as choosing the log home design to build. While it is true that the appeal of log home comes not only from the log home build itself, the location of your log home is also just as important. A log cabin or log home is only made better by the land that surrounds it, and how it combines with the environment that it sits on. If you are thinking about building your log cabin or log home on a piece of property or parcel of land that has already been subdivided for new log cabin or log homes, you will have fewer worries, than if you were just to buy an undeveloped piece of land. A plot of land that has already been subdivided will have a road and access to utilities, and will be attached to a public sewer system.
Disadvantages to purchasing a piece of property that is already developed are that you will have trouble when it comes to the rules on how and what you can build. You will also have to deal with plenty of restrictive rules that will dictate a lot of your aesthetic log home choices, and there will be a review committee that will also help in limiting your log cabin vision. You will also have fewer options when it comes to choosing the natural environment of your surroundings.
Building a log home or log cabin is a process, and when you are equipped with good information and the right people, your log home journey is sure to be a lot smoother. Knowing ahead of time what to expect in the log home building process, is just one of the steps to making your log home build one that is without unnecessary surprises. The My Woodhome site is a good place to start when it comes to knowing what to expect when you are building a log home of your own.
