log home design & build
For all of our customers, designing and building a bespoke log home has been a lifelong dream. At Caledonia Log Homes, we offer a full log home design and build service, to make this dream a reality. Our simple process is outlined below:
Preparation of working drawings and submission of building warrant drawings.
Working closley with Kevin and Chris we will go through your build in detail, bringing your dream one step closer to reality. Location and layout of rooms, window positions, electrial layout and heating systems are all decided here. The look and feel of your build is planned at this stage and layout of internal log beams, joists, purlins, ridges, feature trusses and log stair design are all discussed and agreed upon. Kevin will sketch up working drawings that will be submitted to Building Control and final pricing will be agreed. We work closley with a local structural engineer who will develop and produce a Certificate of Design for the foundations and superstructure. They will also acrry out a site investigation and design soakaways and sewage treatment systems if they are needed.
Contracts for the build will be signed.
Each log is individually selected for a specific place in the building. It is then expertly hand peeled, scribed and cut to a the highest standards before it is added to the structure. When the building is complete the window and door sections will be cut and holes will be drilled internally for all electrical fittings.
Once work in the yard is complete, we will mark all the logs and dismantle the building for transportation to your site where we re-build it in a matter of days.
