Typical Questions

How long does it take from order date to completion of my home?

Typical time can vary depending on the seasonal factors, but we typically can have your home completed in 4 months or less. Smaller cabins typically will have shorter lead times.

Who is responsible for permits?

Our homes already include a full set of drawings that have been reviewed to ensure code compliance, but the actual acquisition of a building permit and other local building requirement would be the buyers responsibility or the responsibility of your general contractor if required.

How much will a foundation cost?

Foundations, driveways, and sitework are not included in our base price. A crawl space with 3-5 rows of block typically may cost between $6,500-$18,000. A full basement with concrete could be between $18,000 and $32,000. This is an estimated allowance. We encourage you to get multiple estimates on your foundation. We will provide a detailed drawing for your mason that includes size and layout of the foundation. The mason contractor will be responsible to meet local regulations for the foundation. Sill plates are considered part of the foundation and must be installed by the mason (the bolts used shall not stick past the plate more than ½ inch and at least 4.5” in from outside of block foundation). The building will be fastened to the sill plate with Simpson plating.

Can existing floor plans be modified?

Absolutely! Most of our floor plans can be modified for no charge. Common changes would be changing interior walls, flipping a layout, or moving windows or doors. We also offer a large selection of options and upgrades like French doors, decks, dormers, custom counters and more!
