Logangate Doesn’t just Build Homes: WE BUILD Dream Homes

To me, there is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeous timber home. I was watching a dream home episode on HGTV and everyone was ooohing and ahhhing at how breathtakingly beautiful the featured timber home was. I really believe that homeowners have their homes built with standard flat drywall ceilings because they simply don’t know their options. They just don’t know that a timber home can be built for about the same price!

Optional Foundation vs. Traditional Block or Poured Walls

Foundation walls and basements can be the coldest dampest places in the home. One option many of our clients are choosing is Superior Walls. Superior Walls has been the world leader in custom residential precast concrete foundation systems since 1981. Their product creates comfortable living space, not just basement space, while lowering energy costs. That’s why Superior Walls are in demand as the superior foundation for new custom homes.
When provided with 1/2″ of Dow® THERMAX™ insulation and 4-1/2″ of rigid foam insulation, the Xi Plus Wall system has an insulation value of R-21.3. That’s a tremendous R-Value for your basement.

How to Build On or Near a Flood Plain?

Does the sound of living incredibly close to water sound like paradise to you? If you crave this type of tranquil and serene living, then a stilt home, also known as a Piling home is for you. Simply speaking, a Piling home is a home that is built on raised piles that serve as a foundation for the home. The poles resemble stilts that the home sits securely on top of. This type of construction typically rests 10-12 feet off the ground to safely allow for high tide. The main reason a Piling home is built is to protect against flooding. These homes allow homeowners to feel as if they are on vacation all year round because they appear to almost hover over the water.

Post & Beam vs. Timber Frame, What is the Difference?

Timber Homes can be either Post & Beam or Timber Frame with the main difference being how the timbers are connected to each other. Post and beam typically uses decorative steel plates to tie members together. Timber Frame, on the other hand, uses centuries-old building technique that are connected by mortise and tenon joints and secured together with oak pegs. The beams of both techniques of these homes are fully exposed to the inside. The Timbers allows for a home to have much more clerestory space adding great amounts of volume to a room and highlighting the beauty of the wood. As you could probably imagine, Timber Frame homes are typically much more expensive than post and beam. Precision cut and fitting the joints is very labor intensive and the main reason for the cost increase. At Logangate Timber Homes, we utilize post and beam techniques. We believe we can achieve just as beautiful end product without breaking the bank.

Going Green is Not Only Good for the Environment but your Pocketbook as Well

Green building is such an important term when you are thinking about a home for you and your family to live in. Any contractor can build a home but will it be a home that is kind to the environment and to your pocketbook? Let’s talk a little more about green building. This refers to the way of building that’s kinder to our environment. It’s also a way of building that saves energy, which in return will save you a significant amount of money every month on your heating and cooling bills. Two easy design decisions you have is roof and sidewall insulation values. Using our e-SIP panel for the roofs you can choose an R-value of 34, 41.5 or 51. For your sidewalls, we can add 1″ foam board to increase your R-value by 5 making your whole wall system R-19 or R-24. Ultimately, it is a practice that includes creating structures and using processes that are responsible and efficient.

Build a Unique Home Where You Never Thought Possible

Getting a home with a scenic view for an affordable price is nearly impossible. But with a pedestal home from Logangate Timber Homes, you can have the mountain home you’ve always dreamed of. A pedestal home has a smaller foundation that the main structure cantilevers over on all four sides. This smaller foundation allows for you to build your dream home in harder reaching areas that would be too cumbersome or costly to build a regular foundation. Plus you have a smaller footprint on the environment with a pedestal home as less of the ground is disturbed to build your home. You can buy cheaper land with beautiful views that were once thought too difficult to build on with a pedestal home from Logangate Timber Homes.
