 Commercial Log Buildings Built of Milled Logs

Commercial log buildings and log lodges can be built of whatever log style you desire. This log lodge is built of 9 inch milled log walls with wider diameter log roof system. The logs are a Swedish Cope stack with full saddle notched corners. Log buildings can be built in just about any size, from overnight cabins to the lodges themselves. This lodge offers over night lodges, restaurant, and river access.

Large projects involve a lot of time and patience. Beginning with a design contract to lay out your thoughts, ideas, and flow of the project is a very important first step. At times owner choose to purchase commercial log conceptual drawings even a few years before any work on the job site begins. There is mammoth load of planning that goes into viable log home style commercial buildings.

The first step in choosing a lodge floor plan it to analyze what the structure will be used for. A restaurant will have a much different layout than an overnight lodge. For a hotel a popular configuration is a central reception/ great room area with a bedroom wing to each side. Room configuration can range from single sleeping rooms to suites. Before purchasing a lodge package it is important to research the type of customers you will have at your specific location. Recently a multimillion dollar hotel was scrapped because there was not enough projected customers for a lodge and conference center of that size.

Going with a milled log style is the most economical choice of log sizes. Taking time to carefully access your projected customer base, the bottom line of your business expectations, and your personal business ambitions. A good first step is a preliminary drawing contract. This allows your ideas to be put onto paper. The flow of the rooms and the best layout for your property can be realized in the preliminary stage.

Any projected costs, cost estimates, material costs, and estimated construction/ building costs, are only the opinion of Cowboy Log Homes and are drawn from our experience. Every home is custom tailored to meet our individual client's wants and desires. The construction of a log or timber home is based on two primary costs: material provided by the log home company and construction costs contracted with Cowboy Log Homes as the builder or another builder of the customer's choice. Final costs are obtained and contracted with each respectively. Cowboy Log Homes is simply the "glue" that helps bring these two together to provide a final culmination of a customer's project. * Please note photos and elevations may differ some from accompanying floor plans.
