While there are other options available, you’re probably reading this because you simply love the natural “Mother Nature” beauty of log cabins. If that’s the case, then there is no reason why you can’t have your own! If you have a dream of either making a log cabin part of your current living establishment or you want to build a new log cabin for land you have already purchased or are renting, you can definitely turn your dream into a reality. Below you will find out exactly how you can build your own log cabin that you will undoubtedly cherish for many years to come.
1 Set Your Budget
The first thing you will need to determine is how much you can budget towards building your new log cabin. The total cost of building a log cabin home will depend upon which of the many considerations and features you would like. One major factor is whether you want your log house completely customized, or if you would be willing to purchase one of the many log homes available as a kit available on the market today. If you want to completely customize your own home, this is going to mean that you’ll have to delve deeper in your pocket set against purchasing a log cabin home kit that only needs to be assembled. If you’re looking at purchasing a pre-built log cabin kit, then you can purchase one from anywhere between £2,000 and £5,000. This is of course just a ball park figure, and there are also more expensive log cabin homes available on the market. There are many price variations between log cabin kits, and they can include anything from the quality and type of wood used, to how it is designed, and its actual size.
2 Determine Whether You Will Build The Log Cabin Home Yourself or Hire Someone to Do It for You
Next, you should determine whether you want to assemble the log cabin yourself or hire someone to do it for you. If you’re the “do-it-yourself” type of person and want to save some extra money, then assembling a pre-designed log cabin kit is not extremely difficult to do. They are usually provided with easy-to-follow instructions and you can usually receive phone assistance from either the retailer or the manufacturer. However, if you don’t want to assemble the log cabin yourself, then you can hire someone to do it for you. Depending upon the size and complexity, the pricing for assembling will vary.
3 Once Fully Assembled Think About Additions
Once your log cabin home is assembled, you are going to need to focus on adding any necessary additions to your new home. This may include adding new partitions, installing electricity & plumbing, a bathroom, etc. The additions you want to add to your log cabin home are obviously going to put an additional dent into your budget. However, once you have at least assembled your new log cabin home, you can always “slowly but surely” invest in whatever additions you need — as your budget permits. Properly maintaining your log cabin After your log cabin home has been built, you’ll need to make sure that it is regularly maintained. If you want your log cabin to maintain its beauty for many years to come, then you will want to make sure you give it a little extra care throughout the year. You should wash it from dirt and other debris at least three times a year. Additionally, you should sand it down and restain it every one to two years to help keep the wood from deteriorating as well as helping maintain its natural beauty.
