“From Permits to Final Grading – We Do it All!”
In planning a new home, there are many things to consider, such as location, floor plans, design, exterior elevations, products, energy efficiency, financing, etc.
“We Guarantee it!”
All of our log homes are:
- Custom Built Using Our Log Home Plans or Your Log Home Design
Whether it’s your log home plan or ours, we will professionally design, Customize and engineer your log home design to meet your needs and desires. This gives you design flexibility that most log home companies can’t offer and the assurance of structural integrity using the latest construction and engineering principles.
- “Turn-Key” General Contracting
Before we begin construction, we will thoroughly review with you the log home blueprints, specifications, construction details and costs for your new home. This gives you peace of mind in knowing that your new home will be built exactly the way you want it, completed on time and with no cost overruns.
Other log home dealers will quote a price for their log home kits and only estimate your additional cost of building the home and subcontracting. This means you are responsible for unloading the log truck, finding a reputable log builder, buying materials and hiring subcontractors.
Securing conventional mortgage financing should be easier for you because Otter Creek Log Homes is the general contractor and has guaranteed the quality, price and timeliness of building your new home. This can mean a better interest rate and less construction loan costs because your home will be professionally completed quicker and on time.
- Built with Kiln Dried Logs
Many log home companies offer only air died logs. Framing material is at a lower moisture content because it is kiln dried. As the exterior wall logs dry out, they shrink more than the interior framing which is kiln dried. This can cause severe problems with door and window alignment. And because the roof system bears on the exterior logs, when they shrink more than the interior wall framing, critical structural problems can occur.
- Energy Efficient
Using double wall construction enables us to develop an exterior wall insulating value that is 3 times higher than that is offered by most log home manufacturers. In addition the entire exterior wall area is wrapped with an air barrier to insure minimal even air infiltration. (Even if a caulk failure should occur, air cannot infiltrate the interior of the home.)
In addition, standard in all homes, a) foundation walls are insulated full-height with R-13 fiberglass insulation, b) perimeter rim joist are fully insulated, c) whenever structurally possible, energy type roof trusses are used, d) a minimum of R-38 insulation is installed in ceilings (higher values in Northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan), e) continuous soffit venting and vent-a-ridge are used to assure good attic ventilation.
