Never owned a log home?
Here are some frequently asked questions by first time log home owners that may help.
What type of log home is this?
This is a custom designed, full-log home. Unlike D-log or log clad homes, this home was hand-crafted with full logs on-site. This is not a kit home. The aesthetically pleasing design was created specifically for this site and constructed from locally-sourced full logs.
Is this home energy efficient?
Yes! Log homes have exterior walls that are thicker than conventional framing and the logs act as a thermal barrier. The seller had Consumers Energy conduct an energy audit in 2019. Consumers Energy rated this home above average for energy efficiency. The utility bills (gas and electric) in 2019 were just over $1800 in 2019. In addition, the home has a new water heater (2019) and furnace (2018).
How much maintenance is involved?
The seller has maintained this home with superior products including Permachink Lifeline Ultra-2 (color – natural) and Lifeline Advance Clear Top Coat (finish – satin). The cost of these products is about $2,300 per application. You can expect to apply finishes as needed. The seller last resealed the exterior in 2006.
Aren’t log homes susceptible to rot and decay?
Water is an enemy of any wood siding. This log home features design elements such as 36” overhangs that are common in extreme climates and keep water away from the surface of the home. In addition, the grade of the land was tailored to gravity feed water away from the home.
How old is the roof?
The roof was replaced in 2019.
What other special features are present?
Be sure to notice the two-story fireplace which was crafted from local fieldstone. The staircase and railing systems are also created from natural wood. The home has two kitchens with the main kitchen being updated with stainless appliances and granite countertops. The master bath is also recently updated. The exterior features extensive decking perfect for taking in the beautiful views of the ten acre parcel. This is a special home with the pride of ownership being evident in the design and features.
