When printed materials and group events don’t go far enough, it’s time to schedule a no-obligation, one-on-one log home, timber home, or hybrid home planning session with your Strongwood representative.
Depending on your needs and home budget, we may even bring in design and/or construction personnel to discuss your project in exacting detail. Think of it as looking before you leap. We strive to provide the type of detailed, no-surprise information that provides peace of mind and helps you sleep soundly upon choosing Strongwood.
Here’s how we’ll help:
Select your building site. Where do you want to experience the grandeur of nature and take pleasure in your new Strongwood?
Nestled in the mountains, overlooking a lake or lost in the woods? You have a lot of options, and we make house planning easy by helping you pick the perfect spot.
Choose a style. Whether it’s a cozy Northwoods cabin, a spacious lakeside home, or something in-between just right for you, we’ll make it happen and even customize the details.
Calculate your budget. No matter the size of your log home, timber home, or hybrid home budget, we will help you build the finest-quality home you can buy. That’s a promise.
Meet with your dream team. With all the designers, sales staff, dealers, and builders on hand and at your service, we’re equipped and would be honored to be your chosen custom home manufacturer.
A: Like any home made of wood or wood siding, it is important to maintain the finish on the outside of the log home to protect it from the elements. The UV rays of the sun break down the finish, so it is important to watch the south-facing side of the home for signs of wear. Typically, a wash down with a hose and reapplication of stain on the southern exposure will be required about every third year or so. It’s a simple, inexpensive process when kept up.
Log home design secrets such as extending eaves and raising the foundation will also help protect the logs and reduce potential maintenance, as will building with properly kiln-dried logs to virtually eliminate the shrinkage, settling, and movement that will occur with a less dry log.
