Plan Ideas


Hi, this is where you the customer has the  most flexibility, and can be as creative as you wish, because you can have what you want.

As you can see in the examples of plans below, log walls are drawn about 300mm thick and conventional walls are still drawn at 100mm, the log walls are always the structural walls, but you do not need foot thick handcrafted log walls around every wardrobe toilet cupboard etc. You can have as many log walls as you like, the Architects and engineers we use are very experienced in log home design and are able to provide you with a log home that best suits your needs.

Here in Natural Log Homes we have come across many home designs in the past 30 years. Some good, some not so good. In the past we haven’t offered standard plans,
and all of our homes were custom designed to suit each customer needs, location, views, etc. Recently, after increasing numbers of enquiries, we decided to offer a few of our NLH Favourite plans.
Please send us an e-mail for pricing details.

 

We are here to help you turn your dream into reality.

The Clearwater is one of the most cost effective 3 bedroom log homes, yet not lacking character and style. Total floor area is 151 sqm. 102 sqm downstairs and 49 upstairs.
