customize an existing plan

Each of the floor plans presented in our gallery are conceptual plans. Conceptual plans are meant to be starting points for the design process, and are rarely built as-is. You can customize a plan in any way, including the type of product, layout, and architectural style. Below we have compiled a few examples to help illustrate how you might modify an existing design concept.

choose a product type

Any of the floor plan concepts in our gallery can be reconfigured to use any or our products, including milled log, handcrafted log, timber frame and hybrid combinations. Select a product style in the example below (our Caribou design) to see how that structure might look if it were redrawn.

adjust the layout

You may find a layout that is almost perfect and only requires minor modifications. Or you may use an existing layout as a starting point and make major changes. Below is an example of how one client chose to modify our Blue Ridge plan. The colors correspond to similar sections of the original design.

modify the exterior

Exterior elevations will change, based on alterations made to both the layout and the product you select. You can make additional changes to areas like window configurations, finish types and entryways to further update the exterior architectural style.
