A log home floor plan this size is a home with a lot of space, and with that comes extra planning and more money. A larger log home will cost more to build, so you’ll want to make sure that you have the right number of rooms to reflect your lifestyle and needs. With a large family, you will also be sure to have guests, and you’ll want to have space for them to stay, so it makes sense to have the square footage that you need for comfort. You’ll want to make sure that the number, type and size of rooms in your log cabin building reflect what will take place within those rooms. To do this, you want to think of your rooms in terms of activities. For example, think of the kitchen in terms of cooking and the living room for family time. Add up the areas together that you use and add on about 15 to 20 percent more space to account for the walls and room to move around. You also want to make room in the budget for extras. This would include things such as large windows, window seats, log beams, dormers, gabled roofs, trusses and vaulted ceilings.
Depending on your log house budget, you will most likely have to compromise a bit. You will need to balance the size, quality and budget of your log home unless you have an unlimited budget, and in that case, the sky is the limit. Most people have to stay within a budget, so you may have to give up a few things to make that budget work.
