Timber Frame - The Design Process

Timber Frame Log Homes Ellijay, GA

The "Design Process"

How do I get to a point where I can get a quote on a Timber Frame and preliminary costs on overall



Log Home Outfitters has numerous ways we can help get you to the quoting phase of your new Timber Frame home or addition to your existing home. You can do the work and we can advise you along the way or we can do the work in designing your custom Timber Frame home or addition.  Advising is free.  Taking information that is already there and doing some 3D drawings so you can see what the home or addition will look like can be done at a minimal fee.  Starting from scratch where we do a custom design can be done at a fair rate.



Log Home Outfitters can take one of their existing log home plans and convert it to a Timber Frame at no fee to you. We will need to have some discussions on Frame Style, Materials, Property Restraints, Property Location so we can design accordingly and create a Timber Frame Package cost for that home.  This can also be done for a home plan you already own. Log Home Outfitters can take this plan incorporate a Timber Frame Design that meets your needs and provide you a price for your Timber Frame home.


Schematic Design Agreement:

Not everybody out there has the ability to translate a 2D floor plans into a 3D vision. Let Log Home Outfitters do that for you.

This process gives you direct access to our Architects screen so you can see the modifications change in "real time" without having to meet somewhere or purchase the program that needs to be learned.
