So you want an estimate for the total cost to complete your log cabins Kit?
Once you have chosen which Conestoga Log Cabins kit you want to buy, you can estimate the total project cost based on a number of factors related to your build site. Total cost can vary significantly based on the excavation needed (foundation choice, length of driveway & slope/rock), whether utilities will need to be run to the site and if you will be do some of the construction yourself. Other smaller impacts will be the quality of the finish work selections; such as flooring, appliances, fixtures, stone work, landscaping, etc.
Despite all these variables, we understand you still want a ball park estimate. Assuming a relatively simple excavation, utility work and you hiring a contractor to build, a rough estimate of the total cost for smaller cabins would be the log cabin kit cost times 2. For larger log cabins, more complex or upgraded selections the total cost estimate would be the log cabin kit cost times 2.5 or more. Both of these multiples would be lower if you are building yourself.
We often find a variety of formulas to estimate turnkey cost being used in the industry. We have chosen to provide one of the most inclusive log cabin kits in the industry to minimize the other costs associated with the project. Other companies will sell a low cost kit with limited materials, but then your build cost will be higher and require more coordination. All the log cabins we sell are manufactured at our 100,000 square foot factory so we can assure the highest quality kits and that all the parts will fit together. This reduces the time required to build your new log cabin and assures a tight fit to improve energy efficiency (learn more about our Everlast Log).
Below are two examples of log cabins we have built that fit the formulas above. These examples do not imply that your project cost will be similar, but are provided as examples only. Contact us to discuss your specific project needs.
Example 1: Brandywine
This log cabin project cost was 2 times the kit cost, which included permits, survey, excavation, utilities, concrete work, crawl space, insulation, HVAC, kitchen, appliances, bathroom fixtures, landscaping, building contractor plus our complete kit (see our log cabin kit material list).
Example 2: Windsor
This log home project cost was 2.5 times the kit cost, which included a full basement, permits, survey, excavation, utilities, concrete work, insulation, HVAC, kitchen, appliances, bathroom fixtures, landscaping, building contractor plus our complete kit (see our log home kit material list).
