What’s The Total Cost Estimate Of a Completed Log Home?

Owner-Built Estimate:
If you are doing some or all re-assembly/onsite work yourself, a reasonable total cost estimate is 2-3 times the log package price.
Do-it-yourself re-assembly and finish using example of $60,000 pre-assembled log package:
• Low estimate: 2x$60,000= $120,000 total cost
• High estimate: 3x$60,000= $180,000 total cost

Contractor-Built Estimate
If you hire Amish Construction and other contractors to provide the onsite re-assembly and finish work, a total cost estimate is 3-4 times the log package price.
Contractor re-assembly and finish using example of $60,000 pre-assembled log package:
• Low estimate: 3x$60,000= $180,000 total cost
• High estimate: 4x$60,000= $240,000 total cost

Another way of estimating total cost is use a low number of $250 per sq. ft. on simpler cabins and homes, and $550 as a high range for larger, more complex homes.
• Low example of 2000 sq. ft home x $250= $500,000 total cost
• High example of 2000 sq. ft. home x $550= $1,100,000 total cost

The above are estimates only. To achieve a more detailed and accurate total cost, you will first need a floor plan and a contractor to provide you with all the finished costs.
Pavilions and other structures have a different price estimate, so the above does not apply. You can request a quote by sending a contact form found on the page bottom of this website.
