Who Does The Building?
Because custom handcrafted log homes are generally more costly to build, many companies promote Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects to save money. Certainly a well-informed experienced home owner/builder can take this route and save money. However, it’s been our experience that most owners lack the time, knowledge, skill, contacts and vision to complete the project to their satisfaction. For all but the most experienced, we recommend that a professional builder be hired.
We may be able to provide tips and some assistance in your search for a qualified log home builder in your area. We are also available to answer questions and communicate directly with your chosen builder to help complete your log home project.
You’ll need to contract with the builder or contractors of your choice for installation of all plumbing, electrical, heating, ventilation and cooling systems, cabinetry, flooring, tile and wall coverings.
Interior Design & Landscaping
Maple Island Log Home’s chosen interior design staff custom designs many unique homes for clients each year. Occasionally a home buyer may elect to enlist the services of a favored designer or architect. We are always happy to work with any outside team.
Landscape design is also the responsibility of the owner. Most owners will contract a licensed landscape architect for plans, designs, and actual installation of materials and plants.
