Even with all of these complications, Angie’s List tells us, log homes are usually built for $125 to $175 per square foot. The days of being able to build a log home for $50 a square foot are probably over, but log home designs can be made very simple for cabins used only in the summer or winter, at considerable cost savings.

As we will mention a little later in the answer to the question about exterior colors, maintenance of a log home can be quite expensive.

Are there log home style floor plans with a detached garage?  Is it possible?

It is easy to find a log home floor plan with a detached garage in the same style.

Does log home style house usually come with a garage?

The closer you are to town, the more likely you are to see log homes with garages. Log homes used for weekend or vacation usually don’t have a garage, although they are a good idea. A garage offers protection from rain, snow, bears, and theft.

Is log home style considered a grand or luxury style of home?  Is the style used for mansions or normally regular-sized homes?

There are log homes that sell for millions of dollars. It’s possible to build a grand log home with luxurious features. But this style is not usually used for mansions or high-end homes.

Can log home style floor plans be open concept?

Log homes lend themselves to open concept living. There is no need for load-bearing beams or walls in the interior in most log home designs, although you may want to add walls for privacy and security.

What are popular log home style exterior colors?

The most popular log home exterior color is “log.” Log homes do not need stucco, brick, or stone veneers. They do not need to be painted, but about every three years they will need refinishing. The most common method of maintaining the look of a log home is with “corncob blasting.” It’s a process similar to sandblasting done with ground corn cobs, followed with a new coat of stain. This costs about $10,000 for a 2000-square foot log home. Replacing rotted exterior wood can be very expensive, because it can be hard to get wood that matches the rest of your house — unless you hold back some of the lumber you use to build your house and store it so it will not be attacked by beetles or termites, or mistaken for firewood.

It’s not hard to find plans for a log home on a narrow lot. Just look for plans for a two-story log home, or a two-story log home and a basement.

What types of roof does log home style house typically have?

Asphalt shingles are one of the least expensive options for a log home. They are easy to repair. Cedar shake roofs on log homes are beautiful, but they require maintenance every few years, and they are not fire-resistant.

Metal, especially galvanized steel, is a long-lasting option for a log home. Modern galvanizing standards predict a 100-year life for a galvanized steel roof in a rural setting. Galvanized steel is waterproof and impact-resistance, and can be painted any color you want.

Copper looks great on log homes, and ages to a beautiful green. Repairs can be done with solder. Copper roofs, however, are very expensive up front.

Does log home style work well with a rustic interior decor?  Or is it more suited to a contemporary interior?
