Q:
How do I get started with a Rapid River Rustic Cedar Log Home?

Many of our customers prefer to have a home that is tailored to their individual needs.  Our computer-aided design department is specially equipped and creatively ready to design a home just for you.
A:

1. Buy your land first before designing the log home.  The Design of your log home will depend on the topography of your property.

2. Choose a size and style floor plan that you can afford then shop your tentative plans with log home producers. Get estimates that are comparable. Make sure to thoroughly compare each company's package to ensure that each is bidding the same materials.  Rapid River Rustic, Inc sells an excellent Log Home Catalog that includes 32 Standard Model Packages with size and floor plans and price list, as well as many pages of color interior and exterior photos of northern white cedar log homes. You may fine a standard plan, but keep in mind most cedar log homes that Rapid River Rustic, Inc supplies the quality white cedar log for are custom log homes that incorporate the home buyers ideas and dreams.

3. Ask your Log Home Supplier(s) for names of reputable builders to contact. Then have them develop a soft budget then fully investigate your final choice of builders.

4. Take your log home plans, soft budget, land information and personal financial statement to your lending institution to establish your financial range.

5. Make the required deposit on your log home package to get your blueprints produced.

6. Take blueprints to your builder to get bids started and establish expense limits for a11 categories. When all costs are agreed to, sign contract with builder.
