Finlog natural design, The natural choice.
Once you have decided to go down the ‘log’ route, if you haven’t already you will need to know your ideal layout and design. This is the time you can play around with different ideas, different materials, contemporary or traditional styles or a mix of both! Feel free to ask us for assistance as we have been doing this for years and can advise you with ‘pearls of wisdom’!
We can then provide a budget cost, this is very important as we all need to keep to a budget.
When we have the design finalised we will need to carry out a site visit to check what size truck will be able to carry out the delivery and to check other logistical issues that may crop up. We will then draw up a quotation based on engineering drawings and final spec. These drawings can be drawn up by our design partners or if required your engineer or surveyor.
We will then require a deposit (usually 50% of kit price) to enable us to order the timber and start the production of your new home.
While the production is going on, you, or we will need to organise the groundwork. A fully dimensional drawing will be supplied by Finlog to enable the groundwork design, a ‘site investigation’ and analysis may also be required for building regulations.
The groundwork should be completed before delivery.
Delivery day. The balance of the ‘kit price’ will need to be paid on this day along with the haulage cost.
We will aim to start the build as close to delivery day as is possible. Normally, the 33% of the build cost is paid on the start date. A further 33% is payable when the roofing membrane is fitted, 29% is payable on completion and the remainder within 30 days.
If you have opted for a ‘turn key’ build you can now start to move in, or if you have gone for a ‘shell build’ you can start the internal fit out. Either way you can soon start to reap the benefits of your new log home.

Designing a log home allows you to experiment with details and the combinations of different materials. The end result can be a work of art, expressive, invigorating and cosy and completely unique but most of all, it will be your home.
