So many homes have been lost in the recent California fires
including my parent's home at 248 Sylvia Dr., Glen Ellen,
We will be rebuilding next spring and intend to have them
moved back into their new home by Christmas, 2018.
We are sorry for everyone's loss and understand the issues of rebuilding, debris removal,
navigating insurance companies, and meeting all of the new building codes.
We are designing and building my parents house with a modern style based on our Summit model.

As a rule of thumb, our panelized home packages cost between $45 sqft. and $85 sqft.
This includes all plans, engineering, exterior pre-finished constructed walls,
roof structure, Pella windows installed and pre-stained & chinked, log or timber exteriors.
To build the subfloor, foundation and assemble your panelized home plus delivery including materials,
and labor will cost an additional $45/sqft to $75/sqft.
Cumulatively, the above costs are estimated for the weather-tight shell between $90 and $160/sqft.
The National average for a full turn-key home starts in the $180/sqft. range for a pure country series single story structure.
In California, building costs are higher and you have to expect additional engineering and wild fire requirement upgrades.
Turn-key home to start at $250 to $300sqft. and go up for higher-end designer kitchens and finishes.

Our pre built log home kits arrive ready for fast assembly with the exterior
walls pre-built, sided, stained and chinked with the window installed at the
manufacturing facility before being delivered.
That adds up to hundreds of man hours of workmanship already preformed
before your home is delivered! California labor costs being so high this makes
our log home kits and panelized homes very attractive when compared with the costs associated with stacked hand scribes log homes.
