A. No. Actually, we don’t sell pre-designed plans or mass produce kits. Beaver Mountain specializes in creating one-of-a kind, custom-built log cabin homes, cedar homes, and timber frame homes to fit our customers’ individual lifestyles, needs, and budgets. Your home will be uniquely yours! We offer limitless design options including green, eco-friendly, and energy-efficient building solutions.
A. When you’re ready to build the home of your dreams, our caring, professional designers, consultants, and craftsmen will work directly with you to guide you through the design and build of your custom-built log cabin home, cedar home, or timber frame home. We will create your custom home design, define turnkey estimate ranges, provide a building timeline, help locate and recruit builder candidates, conduct builder introductions, and solicit competitive bids for your custom home construction. Your Beaver Mountain Project Manager will then develop a Builder Bid Analysis and Project Summary that we’ll use to help you interpret and compare the various proposals.
A. Yes. Additions, sunrooms, outdoor living areas, attached garages, and complete makeovers are possible and we build them often. First, you’ll connect with a Beaver Mountain Building Consultant to review your ideas and plans, then meet at your home to gather the information we need to generate conceptual drawings and a cost estimate. We will create your custom design, provide a building timeline, help locate and recruit builder candidates, conduct builder introductions, and solicit competitive bids for your custom home construction. Your Beaver Mountain Project Manager will then develop a Builder Bid Analysis and Project Summary that we’ll use to help you interpret and compare the various proposals.
A. Yes. More than half of our homes have been constructed by Builders who had not previously built a Beaver Mountain home. We specialize in builder-friendly log cabin homes, cedar homes, and timber frame homes that feature pre-engineered, precision pre-cut, prefabricated, and panelized building systems. We also provide outstanding customer/builder services including detailed construction drawings, on-site technical assistance, and field support.
A. Absolutely. We welcome opportunities to collaborate! Your architect or ours, the goal is the same…a log cabin home, cedar home, or timber frame home that fits your lifestyle and exceeds your expectations.
A. Typically, a Beaver Mountain log cabin home, cedar home, or timber frame home does cost somewhat more than a comparable, high quality, custom “stick-built” home with the same level of finishes, amenities, and design complexities. As one might expect, it’s always less expensive to build with vinyl siding, sheetrock, and carpeting than with log and timber components, wood siding, and interior wood finishes. We’d be happy to help you determine a realistic budget. Schedule an appointment with a Beaver Mountain Building Consultant and let’s talk about what works for you.
A. Of course! Beaver Mountain’s in-house engineering staff will custom-design your construction drawings and ensure they meet building and energy codes. Our Architect/Engineer sealed construction drawings will include an Energy Code Compliance Report and be fully prepared to submit for your building permit.
A. To help make your building experience easy and enjoyable, Beaver Mountain offers more specialty products and services than most of our competitors. Providing this level of on-site customer/builder services, along with field support by our experienced team, is just not practical on a nationwide scale.
A. Yes. Beaver Mountain specializes in premium, custom-crafted log cabin home, cedar home, and timber frame home construction. With an average 20+ years of experience each, our craftsmen work diligently to provide extensive, precision pre-cutting, pre-fabricating, panelizing, and other labor-saving, ready-to-assemble features and services that help keep your builder on schedule and on budget.
A. Yes. Beaver Mountain’s kiln-dried wall logs and timber frame components are structurally graded, precision pre-cut, and numbered (ready to assemble). Wall logs are also dry stacked in our facility where we conduct a quality control inspection to check fit and appearance. Once the logs are stacked, you’re welcome to come view your materials to ensure they meet – or exceed – your expectations.
A. Yes. In addition to building custom homes, Beaver Mountain has been involved in many commercial projects: motels, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, welcome centers, retail stores, chapels, barns, boat houses, garages, outdoor living spaces, gazebos, pergolas, and more.
A. In short, it means one of a kind. When we talk about our custom-crafted log cabin homes, cedar homes, and timber frame homes, we’re talking about unique residences with individualized floor plans that reflect the needs, wants, and personalities of their owners.
