Log Homes 1,000 to 2,000 Square Feet

Log homes in the 1,000 to 2,000 square feet range are very popular. Within this square footage usually 1 to 3 bedrooms can be fit into a design, an open great room, and an open loft (if desired). Two popular designs in this size home are the Montana Log Home design and the Chalet Log Home design. Both log homes are built of milled log style. One has a handcrafted log roof system, the other a milled log roof system. Both have open lofts, and the second design has a prow front.

This is one of our favorite plans. It is a custom design by Mike Lemmon. This log home features a large loft with a match 12′ gable dormer on both sides, great room, first floor master suite, and covered front porch, and (uncovered) rear deck. The home locates the open loft over the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, hallway and bath, leaving a cathedral ceiling over the master suite on the east end of the home.

The log size is an 8 inch with full saddle notched corners. The log roof system is constructed from large diameter handcrafted logs. The gable dormer is framed and covered with matching log siding. The support posts, railing, and staircase are also hand crafted logs. This home is situated overlooking the Madison Mountain range surrounding Ennis, Montana.

The Chalet log home design is shown with a prow front, upper balcony on each side, wrap around deck, gable dormers, and prow front. The wrap around porch allows for log enjoyable evenings outside. The upper balconies also allow for enjoyment of the lake and mountain views that surround this log home.

The Chalet is built from 9 inch Swedish Cope logs with a draw knife hand peeled finish. The log roof system is 10 inch in diameter. The gables are solid stacked logs. The prow front is about a 33% angle and is composed of a post and beam front.

Cowboy Log Homes

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.
