Have a log home and want to add on?
Homestead Log Homes has been making custom log home kits for additions for years now. This photo shows us adding onto a log cabin using full round logs that uses chinking to seal the logs watertight. Is is important to use the correct profile of log when adding on to your existing log home. Homestead Log Homes can produce many differnet log styles to fit the needs of our log cabin customer.
I am curious as to the rough cost for adding onto an existing log cabin. This would be a ground floor extension and not a 2nd level floor.
Also- if I wanted to add dormers to the upstairs loft, but the log beams are extending the entire length of the cabin- is this possible? Or I guess the question is how extensive would that dormer work become (can you cut the center beam logs or have to redo the whole roof structure)?
Thank you for your questions.
The costs for adding on to a log home vary on location, style of logs and cost
of labor in your area. Just about any log home can be added onto. The typical cost in southern Oregon start at about $150 per square foot.
Adding dormer certainly can be done with structural modifications. We would have to see photo’s and original plans if you have them.
You are welcome to contact me to discuss your potential plans.
