Log Jamz: Sub- Contractors

Well it has made it back to thusday again, which means time for more log jamz. Today's topic will be sub-contractors. When choosing a sub-contractor for your project there are a few things to look into to aid in making a proper choice.
  One of the first items would be reputation, does the sub work for alot of different builders or does the sub have a consistent group that they have worked for a long period? How long has the sub been in business? Have they done specialized work on either log or timber frame homes?
  Above are just a few things to think about, over time i will provide much more information and some answers that are inline with what the industry as a whole feels are the best for those wanting a log or timber frame home!

As always have a great day!

Log Jamz Location

  Good morning, last week on log jamz i talked about research. Today I will briefly hit on the subject of location, location, location in conjunction with the type of package or kit that may be used.
  As with everything that I write it is subject to your own personal interpretation of the information provided.
  When choosing a kit for your plot of land, one must consider the type of wood species utilized for the log package. Each area has it's own set of conditions that could affect the life of the home. Examples would be items like how much rain does the area receive, does the area have any known infestation problems. Lastly for now does the area have dramatic climate changes. These are just a few things to consider, more to follow........!

as always have a great day, stay safe!!

log jamz Research

Well it is Log Jamz thursday. hope that all is well. As time progresses this little segment of my blog will go into the log home world.
Today's topic is research. When think about build a home any home it is always important to do research. When it comes down to log homes this definitely is true. Everyone that is considering building such a home needs to do a fair amount of just that research.
 First would be to ask yourself questions such as what style am i looking? What type of logs to use?
  Where to i intend on putting up such a home? Budget, Budget, Budget!! Where do i find a builder or do i do it myself.
  These are just a few of the important questions that need to be asked. There will be more to follow and more importantly, i will provide you with information that will aid you to making good decisions to help you realize your dream!!

     As always have a great day, stay safe!

So you probably are wondering if there are answers to my questions from yesterday. The answer would be yes, but when it comes down to it only those that truely understand creativity will be able find the truth behind if a tree falls.
  As for me i will be ever moving forward with my goal of being the craftsman and unleasing the more and more as each day passes. keep an eye out because as i have said before great things are on the horizon and LOOK OUT!!

If a tree falls

If a tree falls does it mean that everything is done? If a tree falls does it make a sound? If a tree falls should you leave it alone? If a tree falls does it's value change? If a tree falls should you do anything about it? If a tree falls where do you turn for the answers to these pressing questions? Finally if a tree falls what's next?

Have a great day!!
