The numbers may be shocking but they don’t lie. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, more than 90% of the 116 million homes in the United States are expected to have higher heating bills this winter compared with last winter, mainly because of higher projected prices for residential natural gas, propane, and electricity. AT LEAST a 13% increase over last winter’s average. NOT what homeowners are wanting to hear. Research also shows that more and more homeowners have had enough and strongly desire to have an energy efficient home.

Many of our satisfied homeowners tell us that following “their gut” and choosing a Logangate Kit Home was BY FAR their greatest home decision and investment. It’s really very simple. A Logangate Kit Home is simply a prebuilt home that comes with a customizable floor plan. Furthermore, our Kit Home is pre-made wall, gable and roof panels so they come together quickly and precisely. We build your home wall panel by panel in our controlled factory setting. This allows for the highest quality construction and therefore a precision fit on the job site. Since the walls of our homes are built in our facility, you can get an air tight seal that is hard to create outside of our factory setting, eliminating drafts and helping you save energy dollars. Many of our satisfied customers say because of this building method, their energy bills have been extremely low, each and every month!
If you love the look of beautiful wood coupled with vaulted ceilings and amazing views, our post and beam construction is for you! Our post and beam construction provides vaulted wood ceilings supported by the strength of Douglas Fir timbers. The benefit of Douglas fir timbers is that they are stronger, more durable and can handle higher impacts and weight loads. This means your timber home can withstand more extreme weather and is built to last longer than other wood types.
There are so many reasons why homeowners fall in LOVE with the Pedestal home. This particular design is one of our most popular homes for good reason. Perhaps the biggest reason homeowners love this design is that it is truly unique featuring a main structure that cantilevers ten feet from all four sides of a small foundation. This means you can build right on the beach with less cost than traditional construction because the foundation is smaller so it costs less to raise your home to the elevation requirements. You can even build on steep slopes. This is a BIG deal that gives you building options that would otherwise be OUT OF THE QUESTION. Our Pedestal Home allows you to build in locations that are otherwise unavailable due to terrain or cost. Plus, this style of home is built to handle extreme weather like a champ. The small footprint means minimum site disturbance preserving the natural state of the building area. Our custom Pedestal Home is perfect for sensitive sites that include steep slopes, flood plains and marshes.
