Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the most common questions asked about our floor plan gallery and design process. If your question is not answered, or you need more information, please submit it via our contact form or call us directly.

No, we do not sell our plans because they are conceptual designs. The complexity of our designs require detailed, engineered construction drawings that are not available without going through the entire design process. Those final plans are designed specifically to work with our patented log and timber construction techniques and Insulspan SIPs. Therefore the conceptual plans displayed on our site are not ready for construction. Please keep in mind that our plans are intellectual property protected by copyright and can not be reproduced or used without our consent.

All of the plans shown on our site were created as conceptual design ideas. This means that we expect our clients to use these designs to inspire their own homes, not as stock plans. So if you see a plan you like but envision changes, those changes will be made during the design process, when you work one-on-one with your designer. There is no limit to what you can change during the design process – assuming it fits within your budget.

Does it cost extra?

The cost of going through the design process is the same whether you make modifications to a conceptual design or start from scratch. Our design services are one of the best values in the custom mountain home building industry.

Many of the conceptual designs found in our floor plans pages have been used by past clients to create their own homes. In many cases we have included a peek at these variations at the bottom of the plan page. The goal is to help spark your own ideas and show just how much you can change and modify the design. If we have photos in the photo gallery, of a home based on a plan there will be a link. Although we understand the desire to see as much as possible, some of the designs have not been built, and we have limited space and time to display variations. Always remember that your home will be custom-designed for you.

The designs on our site are created as conceptual ideas, not stock plans ready to be built. Therefore we do not have a set of exact specifications that we can reference. In the end, if there is a roof height or window width you prefer, your designer will work with you to modify or design a plan that matches your needs. When searching through our floor plan gallery, concentrate on finding design ideas and layouts that are close to your vision. Details like heights and widths can be worked out later.

As we are constantly creating new plans and adding new plan information (like new variations or links to photo galleries), the best place to present our complete “plan book” is through the website. We invite you to save favorite images to your preferred social media gallery, such as Pinterest or Instagram.

All of our plans are completely customizable, including door widths, hallway sizes and the incorporation of ramps and elevators. There is no need to look for a plan that fits your ADA needs. Find a plan that fits your style and general layout desires and we will retrofit it. Or start from scratch and let us design a layout that is specifically meant for you.
