The Risks of Building a Home Addition Without Pulling Permits First

Regardless if you are an experienced do-it-yourselfer, the days of just picking up your hammer and starting a home addition or home remodeling project are long over. It is critical that you first make your municipality aware of your home building intentions.

Municipalities are increasingly cracking down on the weekend DIY construction homeowner to protect themselves against possible future lawsuits, and to maximize their property tax revenue. If you don't contact them, be assured someone else in your neighborhood will, so before you have legal problems and fines to contend with, it is best to contact them first.

Also note that besides legal issues and fines associated with not pulling permits, municipalities also can require the destruction of the home addition.

There are federal, state and local building codes that municipalities require in home construction. These codes are in place to protect the occupants of the home, and others living near or around the home from fire, collapsed framing construction, electrical shock and many other dangers that can occur when a home or home addition is not constructed properly.

These codes also serve to protect the investment in your home. Most of today's homebuyers request a home inspection as part of the purchase and sales agreement. If a home inspection determines your home addition does not meet home construction codes then chances are the buyers will renege on their offer, and rightfully so. To ultimately sell your home you will probably need to bring your home addition or home remodeling project up to legal building codes. As a result, you will wind up ultimately spending more money in the end on the project by not pulling the permits during the pre-construction phase of it.

The other advantage in pulling the appropriate permits on a new home addition or home remodeling project is that you enable your project to be regularly checked during the construction by the local building inspector. As a result, you can feel more comfortable knowing that the project not only meets the national and local building codes, but is also safe and your financial investment is protected.

The costs of building permits are quite minor, relative to the total cost of a home addition or home remodeling project, and consequently there should be no excuse not to pull them. Yes the permit process may force you to use licensed contractors that you had previously no intention in hiring, but again this cost delta is peanuts compared to a cease and desist, or deconstruct order from the town or city.

Not pulling permits on a home addition project is fraught with danger and liabilities, and the liabilities can last the life of the home addition. Consequently, if you are planning to build a home addition, always go to your local municipal building inspector first and determine what permits you will need. In some cases you may be able to pull the permits yourself, and in other cases a licensed contractor will need to pull them for you.

Cost of Home Building Materials - A Big Chunk of Money But a Fraction of the Cost to Build a Home

How much does it cost to build a home? Everyone wants to start with the cost of the building materials. And while that represents a huge portion of the overall costs (probably the biggest in most cases), it's still a fraction of the total cost to build.
 
This article is designed to help you, as an owner builder, understand the factors involved in figuring the cost of a home building project. My goal is to present you with a birds-eye view of how the cost of materials, while representing a big chunk of the home-building budget, cannot be thought of as an indication of your cost to build a home.
 
A Home Building Budget is Complex
 
Let's put the cost of home building materials in perspective. What have you got when you have a pile of materials? Sticks, windows, doors, cabinets, appliances, tubs, sinks, lights, floor coverings ... yeah, lots of cool stuff, but pretty much useless in a pile. The magic comes in how it's all put together.
 
It takes a lot of people, talent, time and energy to make a pile of materials a home. This is what we pay for, even when buying materials. But, we're still only about 30% of the way home once we've priced out our materials package.
 
Your total investment to build will be spread over the following:

  • Cost of land and utilities
  • Coaching and project supervision
  • Building permits and other required fees
  • Home design and architectural work
  • Financing and reserves
  • Professional and casual labor
  • Deliveries, insurance, contingencies
 
Simplifying the Process of Pricing With Kit Homes
 
Many owner builders use packaged homes to make pricing a materials package easier. But it still doesn't remove the need to factor in all the other costs of building a home. Don't make the mistake of asking for the price of a package and think you've got a good handle on the cost to build.
 
Home building packages do include more labor than a site built home, but they only slightly reduce the need for all the other building requirements I've listed here. As always, I advise the use of a home building coach to accurately assess your project.

Building a Home - Don't Do It! Okay, Maybe Don't Do it, Yet!

Getting started is the hard part. Perhaps it could be said that, in life, there is no perfect time to do just about anything. There are urgencies that make things immediately necessary but when it comes to planning for a home-building project, you can wait till the cows come home and still there would be a reason to put it off.
 
I want to take a different track in this article. In my years of working with people who build or remodel their own homes I spoke with hundreds and hundreds of people and assisted them in making the decision to build ... or NOT.
 
To Build or Not to Build - The Question of the Day
 
The fact is, I advised more people *not* to build than I did to build. This was for many reasons. Some people were not qualified to manage a project such as this. Others could not make decisions easily enough and it was obvious that they just didn't know what they wanted. There were also those for whom the timing just wasn't right. I never advised anyone to build until these and other considerations lined up in such a way that the majority of the stop lights turned green.
 
In the current market conditions, there are more reasons why building a home might not be for you at this time. To find out, I ask you to consider your objectives.
 
WHAT IS IT YOU REALLY WANT?
 
Take stock of your priorities. Home building might be a longer-term objective and not an immediate goal. Here are some things to think about.
  • How soon do you want to be in a home?
  • Are you looking mainly to create equity?
  • Is this a long-held dream for a land parcel you now own?
  • Are you extremely particular about where you live and how the home looks and feels?
You can learn more at sites like Dream Home Creation, but depending upon your answers to these and similar questions, building may be something that can wait. On the other hand, if you own a piece of land and you're eager to build on it, it's probably a good time. When you answer these questions, if you find you are just looking for the best deal you can get, building may not be a good option. And if you're in need of a place soon, building is not for you.
 
This Just Isn't the Best Time to Build, if ...
 
There's one big reason why this may not be the time to build if you're looking for a the best deal on a home. Home prices are down almost everywhere. Deals can be had. One caution: While a rebound in prices will eventually happen, don't expect it right away.
 
Foreclosures, motivated sellers, and bank repossessions have flooded many markets with houses that can be purchased for well under their values of two to three years ago. So, if you primarily want a low price and you're not particular about what you want, I would advise you to pursue these options rather than building a home at this time.
 
CONSIDER HOME IMPROVEMENT
 
If you find a really good deal on a home purchase, you may find that remodeling it would be a good option. Try to look at the choices you have in homes with an eye towards changes that you could make to enhance value and your comfort.
 
Also, you may want to have a builder or home building coach take a look at the home you're considering buying before you close any deal. This isn't to take the place of a home inspection, it's only if you plan on a major home improvement. The builder or coach will be able to assess the viability of any home improvement ideas you have. Happy hunting!

Build a Home Wind Turbine and Never Pay an Electric Bill Again

Whether you want to eliminate your energy bill, set yourself up to live off the grid, or make your home a little greener, you will want to look at what it takes to build a home wind turbine. You will be very surprised at how inexpensive and how easy it can be.

But why would you want to build a home wind turbine and not just go out and buy one? The answer is simple, especially if you are trying to save yourself some money. A retail wind turbine will cost you around $4,000 for the low end models and up to $10,000 for the best ones. Not to mention that you still have to pay for installation and then wait for up to 3 or 4 months to actually get it installed.

When you build a home wind turbine with the right plans, you will find that you can complete the project and have your own power source for under $100 when! The cost is almost laughable considering that once you build a home wind turbine, it will pay for itself in only 1 or 2 months since you will no longer have an electric bill to pay.

So what does it take to build a home wind turbine? Here is the list:

- a clear, easy to follow guide with full illustrations
- a decent sized work area, such as a garage
- common tools that you probably already own
- a single weekend to build a home wind turbine

And what about the parts to build a home wind turbine? There are only 3 basic parts to the generator:

- the blades and mounting
- the body and tail assembly
- the tower that will support your home wind turbine

You will notice that when you build a home wind turbine, the blades and mounting will take the longest. The actually process for this part is easy but it does take a little time so it is best to knock it out first.

The only piece that you will have to actually order to build a home wind turbine is the motor but your plans will tell you where to get it for a good price. The motor is the most important part as it will actually convert the wind energy into usable electricity for your home. Everything else you will already have or is available at your local hardware store to build a home wind turbine.

Another important part will be the housing for the generator body. We have found from experience that the best thing to use when you build a home wind turbine is double-walled stainless steel chimney pipe. This is the same thing used on wood stoves or furnaces. After you build a home wind turbine, you will want to set it outside and this pipe is already designed to withstand every kind of weather.

You will be able to do a custom design for the tail and make it out of anything you choose when you build a home wind turbine. It is easy to design and gives you a great opportunity to decorate anyway you want. A lot of people paint it to match their house or make it a custom art piece.

The wind generator tower is the biggest part of the unit. You will find that as you build a home wind turbine, the easiest thing to do will be to get an old TV antennae tower and reuse it. People will actually pay you to remove them from their houses so you can even make some money doing it!

The only other thing you will need to build a home wind turbine are the batteries and charge controllers. This is what will enable you to store power for use in your house.

That is it! It really is easy to build a home wind turbine and can be done for very little money.

With the right set of plans, you will be able to cut your energy bill by 80% or even eliminate it. Not only that but when you build a home wind turbine, you will also be helping to save the planet for generations to come!

Building a Home Addition Versus Buying a Larger Home

Choosing to extend the size of your current home via building a home addition is frequently a better decision than selling your home and buying a larger one. In addition to making financial sense, in many cases it also offers other advantages. For example, if you like where you live and/or have children in a school system that they enjoy, building a home addition can preserve these ties.

In addition to providing your house with more living space and saving money, building an addition can also be a terrific investment. However, before starting a large project such as building an addition, it's important that you first consider several factors. These factors include: the size and scale of the home addition, the property market values in the neighborhood, required financing, architecture, timeline for completing the project, and the personal disruption that you and your family are willing to stand.

Before breaking ground on a home addition, you should first determine your specific extra living space needs. For example, what types of room(s) are you looking to add, and how many square feet of space is desired? Once you know what you need for space, it is then critical to find out the market value of houses in your local area with similar features and sizes to your new home plans. With this market analysis you can then determine the market value difference between your current home footprint and your enlarged home footprint. This market value difference should represent the maximum budget for the new home addition if you want to make a positive investment.

The next major issue that needs to be addressed is how to finance the building of a home addition. Unless the project is being funded via your personal savings then financing will be necessary. If current mortgage rates are higher than the existing house loan, then a home equity loan may make more sense. If current mortgage rates are lower than the existing home mortgage, then refinancing the entire home, including the cost of the home addition project, may make better sense.

After addressing the financing of the home addition, the next major item to focus on are the plans. It is important to consider both the size and scale of the addition, as well as the aesthetics and architecture of the new addition. The home addition should be designed such that it melds into the existing home and is aesthetically appealing from the road. It should not be too large or small relative to the original home. Frequently, homeowners build large additions that either dwarf the existing home or look like aberrations cobbled onto the existing home. Home market values are based on more than just living space. Exterior aesthetics play a major role in calculating the home's market value.

It is also important to consider other items such as rooflines, doors, siding, windows, shingles, and height elevations. All should meld into the existing home exterior seamlessly.

If you are not planning to use an architect for designing the new home addition then consider purchasing a home design software package. There are a number of good ones on the market and they can help you in multiple ways. Besides providing you with overall sketches of the existing home and addition, they can provide necessary structural drawings to provide to the building inspector when pulling permits for the project.

The next two important aspects to consider are the timeline for completing the project, and the level of homeowner sweaty equity you are willing to provide. When developing a timeline, plan for delays and contingency plans. Regarding homeowner sweat equity, many homeowners over estimate their skill sets and time commitment. Do not over commit yourself both in time and skill sets. Hire contractors where you lack skills, tools, equipment, and time. Also where you legally can not perform the work, e.g. plumbing and electric, plan on finding licensed contractors. For smaller projects, such as installing interior doors, finish trim, painting, cabinet installation, tiling and hardwood flooring, by all means sign up for these tasks if you have the tools and skills.

Finally, remember that building a home addition is a major undertaking. It is also very disruptive to your home for many months. So before choosing to build a home addition, be prepared for the inconveniences of possibly not having a functional kitchen, contractors walking through your home, and loud noises throughout the day. Building a home addition is also a dusty and dirty endeavor. Finally, dealing with contractors can also be challenging at times.

If after considering all these factors you still want to move forward on building an addition, create your plans, hire your contractors, pull your permits and expect a few bumps along the way. When the project is complete you will have more living space, save money and maintain your home base.

Build A Home Internet Business For Just $10 And Learn How To Start Making Money Online In 3 Weeks!

Now I'm sure you've heard Internet "gurus" promise that you can build a home internet business and learn how to start making money online (in the thousands of dollars, if not millions) IF you buy their overly expensive courses, software and ebooks.

I'm here to tell you -- STOP! Don't waste your money! Learning to build a home Internet business doesn't have to be expensive; it can be easy to do. Plus you can start making decent money in just a few weeks.

I can almost hear you asking -- is there a secret to how to build a home internet business? Actually the secret is... there is no secret.

It's just a question of being focused on just ONE simple approach to build a home internet business.

A step-by-step approach that will enable you to learn how to start making money online in a reasonably short time. In our case, 3 weeks or less!

Here's a simple 5-step approach on how to build a home Internet business I assure you will work if you apply it.

1. Find a hot product

This is a bit obvious but in order to build a home internet business, you need a product to sell. But, make sure though that it's a product that people want to buy. Not everything out there is in demand.
Simply go to Clickbank.com and look for a product in an area you are interested in that is in demand now. Look for a product with at least a 20 in gravity. In fact the higher the better.

Sign up as an affiliate for that product. And grab your affiliate link. OK, now you're ready to build a home internet business!

2. Look at demand and your potential competition

Now that you have a product, you need to identify a keyword phrase related to the product.

Why you ask? Well, to build a home internet business that is viable, you need to know what the volume of demand is versus the competition you have to beat. Just like in any traditional offline business.

For example, if your product is on dog training, look for a long-tailed keyword like "dog training for big dogs". Use Wordtracker.com to show you the daily search volume.

You are looking for a monthly search volume of at least 500 to make it worth your while to use a particular keyword phrase. With Wordtracker, you will need to multiply the result given by 150 to give you the monthly volume.

Now determine if there is too much competition. Just Google your keyword phrase within quotes " ". If you get results of between 1,000 and 5,000, you're in good shape!

3. Buy a domain name

If you are going to build a home internet business, you obviously need a "home" for it. In the case of the online world, a domain name.

Buy yourself a domain name that is as close as possible to the keyword phrase you have identified. The $9 you spend on this domain name should be your only cost, how about that?

In your domain name control panel, use the redirect function to redirect your main domain name to your affiliate link. This is important so that you meet the article directory's requirements, and ultimately your goal to build a home internet business.

4. Write at least 5 articles (10 would be even better!)

Every business needs customers or traffic. When you build a home internet business, traffic is your lifeline. Among the many traffic generation methods, article marketing is very effective.

To do this, you will first need to find another 4 keyword phrases that are similar to your main phrase. Write short articles of no more than 300 to 500 words using these different phrases.

Remember to include the keyword phrase in your article title. More importantly, make sure you mention the domain name for your product in your resource box at the end of the article.

5. Submit the articles

Once you have 5 articles ready, submit all of them to an article directory like EzineArticles.com

And that's it. If you have followed the above steps correctly, you will see your article appear on the front page of Google when you search for your main keyword phrase very soon. And within a few weeks, I can almost guarantee you will start seeing sales and money coming in! You have in effect build a home internet business. Woo hoo!

Mind you, this is a quick and dirty way to learn how to start making money online; for less than 10 dollars; while seeing money come in probably in less than 3 weeks.

Once you have seen some sales, develop this further by building a simple website on your domain name. Here you can start collecting email addresses from visitors, in return for a collection of your articles. Thereafter, you can promote other similar products to them via email marketing. And make more money, of course! Isn't this the reason why you wanted to build a home internet business in the first case?

In other words, steps 1 to 5 above are great if you want to learn how to start making money online at the beginning. But you need to start to build a home Internet business for the long term, one that is sustainable.

To wrap up, I will say that another great way to build a home Internet business for the long term is to use an Internet model like "Newbie Cash Machine". This teaches you how to promote an affiliate product with a secret "twist".

Combined with Internet marketing techniques like the ones described in this article, Newbie Cash Machine offers a powerful lesson in how to start making money online for the long term. You can read more on how to build a home internet business using the Newbie Cash Machine model at the link provided below.

Building a Home Internet Business - Ideas for the Beginner?

Building a home internet business can be as rewarding and satisfying as it is frustrating and expensive. Anyone considering building a home internet business should educate themselves of the types of internet business that are available to them. This article aims to provide the knowledge of what is available to those who wish to begin building a home internet business.

Google provides many who are interested in building a home internet business with opportunities to make money using their AdWords and AdSense programs. Google AdSense is a program created for content publishers, namely those who have or are creating a website. Google gives you, the publisher, a snippet of html code that you must insert into your web pages. After doing so Google will display ads on your pages that are related to the content and whenever someone clicks on an ad Google will pay you. I have seen clicks that pay anywhere from $.05 to $5.00 per click. Building a home internet business using Google AdSense will take some time if you do not know much about building a website but if you are up to the challenge it can be one of the most lucrative ideas for building a home internet business that literally runs on auto pilot. The best part is once you create your first AdSense site it is easy to just repeat the process for a different website with a new theme.

Google AdWords is quite different from the AdSense program but is something that the beginner can jump into right away. Building a home internet business using AdWords doesn't require any knowledge of web design or even having your own product. The way AdWords works is that you write ads that will appear next to the search listings for a specific keyword. The keyword that the ad appears for is determined by your bid on that particular keyword. Whenever someone clicks on your ad Google will charge you. This can be a very effective method for building a home internet business promoting affiliate products that pay you a commission. Building a home internet business with Google AdWords has become very popular and there are a number of resources that can show you how to be successful using adwords. I suggest taking a look at Perry Marshall's "The Ultimate Guide To Google Adwords".

Google is not the only resource for those building a home internet business. There are many money making programs that can be purchased by the beginner for under a hundred dollars that are jam packed with great ideas for building a home internet business. The only problem is that many people are tricked into buying these programs with the notion that they will make thousands of dollars in a relatively short amount of time. Building a home internet business is not going to be easy and I think many give up once they realize it is hard work. Because of this many programs have gotten a bad name. Yes, it is true that many of the sales pages for online money making programs are exaggerated, but keep in mind that they are trying to sell their product.

Truth be told, unless you already know a lot about internet marketing and how to create web sites you will not make a lot of money right away. Building a home internet business will take time and you will need to educate yourself with the ideas and concepts outlined in any program you decide to purchase.

Once you have found and committed to a system stick with it for at least a year. If you want to be successful building a home internet business you need to follow in the footsteps of people who are already making money on the internet. Make the time to work on building a home internet business. I suggest trying to spend an hour or two per day.

If are interested in building a home internet business and want to see what kind of programs are available to you please visit my website Johnny's Scam Report [http://www.johnnys-scam-report.com]. I have tested many of the internets so called get rich programs and can help save your time and money.

Building A Home Internet Business To Make An Income Online

The internet offers anybody with a computer and internet connection the opportunity to start a home internet business with a click of the mouse, but building a home internet business is where the challenge, work and excitement begin.

Too many people get totally disillusioned when they have not made an income online after a few days or weeks of starting their home internet business, but that is purely because they do not appreciate the fact that it takes time and effort to build a business online.

The building process of a home internet business never stops and if you can appreciate that you will need to be continually building, extending, maintaining or making alterations then you will be well on your way to making an income online.

Building A Home Internet Business

Your need to get your website in front of as many people as possible who are looking for what your business has to offer, so the whole building process is geared to attracting vast numbers of targeted visitors to your home internet business.

This involves making the presence of your business felt on the internet and this is the process of building that we are going to discuss here.

It is important that you have a means of building your list. Offering an email newsletter is a good example and with an auto-responder set up your visitors will be able to subscribe to your newsletter and so you start the list building process. This will enable you to also send your list members broadcast messages from time to time.

Ensuring that your website is search engine friendly is another important factor to ensure that you achieve good rankings in the search results and you can optimize your website for your chosen keywords yourself.

There are many ways to start making the presence of your business felt and it is advisable to use a variety of methods. Building back-links to your website is what is needed to give you better rankings in the search engines and a very effective method is writing and submitting articles to the article directories on a regular consistent basis, using the author resource box to anchor your keyword phrase to your website.

Exchange links with other websites to build your link popularity and add your link to web directories. Constructively post in forums with a link to your website in your signature. These methods can be totally free if you have the time to write and submit. If you are short of time you can always hire a ghostwriter to write your articles and invest in an article submitter for submitting your articles.

Pay per click advertising is another way to get almost instant targeted traffic to your website. You can also place adverts on the respected classifieds sites. Social bookmarking and blogging are also quick ways to spread the word.

Extending A Home Internet Business

As far as your actual website or blog is concerned it is important to continually add new content, not only to please the search engines but to add interest to your site as well. You can continually expand your website by adding new pages which target different keywords, thus attracting different visitors. Monitor your rankings in the search engines for your chosen keywords and keep an eye on your competition and make adjustments to your site where necessary.

As the presence of your home internet business starts to be felt on the internet the volume of traffic to your website will steadily increase and if this is not happening you know that you need to do more of the above disciplines.

Maintaining Your Website

Be sure to regularly maintain your website by way of checking that all your links are working. Check your download time. Remove unnecessary links. Add more up-to-date features. Keep your website current.

Making Alterations To Your Website

There may come a time that you are receiving a lot of traffic to your website but you are still not making an income online. What now?

This is when you need to take a serious look at your website. Are you offering what you promised in your adverts? Can your visitors easily find what they are looking for? Is your website easy to navigate? Is your website displaying offers or adverts from other websites that are distracting your customers? Do you have irritating flashing banners on your site? Are you asking your visitors to fill out too many forms or lengthy surveys? Do you have a call to action section? Are you giving your visitors too many options? Are you offering too much information or non-relevant content?

Many forums have a section where you can submit your website for a review. A good idea would be to go back to the forums where you have been posting and submit your site for a review, explain the problems you are experiencing and request honest feedback to help you solve the problem. You could join an SEO forum as well and submit your site for a review from a more specialized point of view.

Making An Income Online

As you can see from the above, there are many factors involved in building a successful home internet business, but once you have reached the stage that your website is being viewed by a large number of people on a daily basis who are in the market for what your home internet business has to offer and your website is clear in its offerings, that is when you will start making an income online.

Building A New Home - 7 Reasons Why You Should Build A Home

Build a home. This is by far the most repeated advise in human history.

Adults are quick to recommend this option. In fact, it's the most common advise on the lips of many mature people.

However, many youngsters think differently. Building a new home is not a priority for them. They just want to hang out and have fun. They want to buy the latest gadgets and feel cool.

It's okay to flow with the times and enjoy the best technology can offer. Heck, that's one of the big advantage of being alive in the 21st century.

Yes, enjoy life's little pleasures but don't forsake the golden advise to build a home.

THE 7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BUILD A HOME 

1. Building a new home helps you save money.

Most people find it difficult to save. They simply spend their money as it comes. But when you build a home, you save all that money. A home is a huge investment in capital. This means you also make a huge savings for the future.

2. A home appreciates in value over time

Property values increase with time. In developing countries like Nigeria, prices are always on the rise
never down.

For example, in mega cities like Lagos Nigeria real estate owners are making a killing. Lagos Nigeria
landlords are in the habit of raising rent arbitrarily. For instance, at the beginning of 2006, my Lagos Nigeria landlord wrote me through his real estate agent to inform me that my rent has doubled starting 2007.

I was so pissed off that I bought a land and started building.

I have long known the value of real estate. I had enough money to build a home. But I kept procrastinating. It took a sudden sharp increase in my rent to jolt me to action and start me on the path of building a new home. As I write, my home is on the verge of completion.

If you're like me, it's time to wake up.

Real estate appreciates in value over time. Any home you build now will pay for your retirement when
it's time.

3. There is pride and fulfillment in owning a home.

Here's a typical example.

My landlord's daughter once had a dispute with one of the tenants. After much quarreling, she yelled in anger. "This is my father's house! Anyone who doesn't like my rules should go live in his father's house".

Some pride, right?

You don't need to be arrogant like my landlord's daughter because your dad or you own a home. But your sense of achievement and accomplishment after building a new home is simply out of this world.

Don't believe it? Experience it.

4. Your home can serve as collateral when you need a loan to execute another project. Your car can't. Even your most expensive electronics gadgets can't. See the value of owning a home?

5. Building a new home elicits an overwhelming excitement in you.

The truth is . . . building a home goes beyond just owning a home. Build a home is a wonderful advice because it elicits in you excitement that is beyond explaining. The feelings of worth and success just overwhelms you.

I know that from experience.

Try this. Build a home. And get the experience of a lifetime.

6. A house his a concrete asset. It stays with you generation after generation. And with passing generations comes attachment and emotions. Nothing else in this vast universe gives as much satisfaction as building a new home.

7. Pass a legacy to your children. Give them something to inherit.

A home is a concrete asset you can pass to your kids. It is an asset that they cannot easily forget.

What to be remembered?

Build a home. Leave it as a legacy for your kids. Generations after you will remember.

Building a new home is just incredibly exciting. Don't miss out on the fun.

Custom Build Log Homes - 3 Options When Building a Log Home

Custom build log homes are homes that are designed and constructed based on what the homeowner wants. When custom building a log home, the homeowner works with an architect, residential designer, log home company or home builder who will create custom build log homes plans that are individualized for that log home. The major advantage to the homeowner when custom building a log home is that their home will be designed and built according to their needs, desires and specifications.
Here are three major ways to consider going about custom building a log home:
o Create Your Custom Build Log Homes Plans with an Architect - if you want to create your log home from scratch, you may wish to use the expertise of a qualified architect. You'll want to be sure that yours is not the first custom build log home the architect has designed. Ask to see their past designs, check their references and determine if they really do have the education and experience to design your log home.
Not only can the architect design custom build log homes plans, he or she can oversee the construction process to help ensure that your log home is built as intended. This option will likely cost the most, and their fees will usually be a percentage of the project cost or related to the square footage. Ideally, you'll find and investigate several architects, then choose the best one for you when building a log home.
o Create Your Custom Build Log Homes Plans with a Log Home Company - many log home companies have in-house architects that can work with you to create custom build log homes designs. Often, draftspersons will be doing most of the designs. If this is the case, verify that a qualified architect or designer is overseeing their work to be sure it meets code and is structurally sound.
Log home companies provide logs that are milled into a desired shape which produces uniform logs without taper. The logs used generally range in length from 10 to 18 feet. A custom build log homes design using manufactured logs can vary considerably in shape and appearance because the logs have different shapes and there are different corner styles. You can obtain kits ranging from just the logs and fasteners to more complete systems that include the roofing materials, doors, windows and even more. You may be pleasantly surprised at the flexibility in designs and variety in log home plans that exist today with log home companies and their log home packages.
o Find Existing Log Home Plans You Like and Modify Them - there are several reputable online national plan services that provide ready-to-build log home plans at a price considerably below what an architect needs to charge to create custom build log homes plans from scratch. And they should have qualified staff that can make modifications to their plans so that your plans become the custom build log homes plans that are just what you want.
As you visit plans services online, see what criteria you can enter so you only get the plans that interest you. You should be able to search by square footage, number of bedrooms or bathrooms, one-story or two-story and so on. See what plans are shown. As you find log home plans that interest you, note the plans numbers in case you want to see them again. If you find a log home floor plan you really like, then examine the plans company and plans prices.
Here are questions you should want answers to when you're considering building a log home with their plans:
1. How long has the plans company been in business?
2. Can the plans service company make changes to plans for you?
3. What are your choices in plan formats?
4. How long do your plans take to be completed and to arrive?
5. Can you get lists of materials needed to build?
Whether you are just beginning to organize your ideas on custom build log homes or are well along in the process, investigate your options. A well-designed and well-built log home can provide many decades of comfort and pleasure of ownership. Before designing and custom building a log home, learn as much as you can about the building process, about controlling costs and how to work with the professionals who will be helping make your dream of log home living become a reality.
