The process of building a Custom Log / Post & Beam Home can be separated into three basic stages.
Stage one is the design and planning stage which varies in time, depending on the complexity of the design, and the time taken to gain local council approval / permits. This process takes on average 6 to 8 weeks.
Stage two is the construction phase, during which we construct your handcrafted log shell / post and beam structure in the yard – and the foundation / subfloor will be constructed on your property. On average it takes 12 weeks to handcraft the average size log home.
Finally, we get to Stage three, the re-erection – this being the most enjoyable stage for you the homeowner. We will erect the handcrafted log shell / post and beam structure on your foundation, which usually takes us 3 to 4 days for the average home and 5 to 7 days for larger ‘lodge style’ homes. This timeline also depends on the logistics of the building site and the complexity of the project.
Once the home has been re-erected, our team of expert tradesmen will complete the project to ‘lock up’ (roof, external doors/windows, and internal wall framing) or to completion. It takes on average 4 weeks to get your project finished to lock up.
