The hearth in the center of the great room will be the gathering place to make memories. Upstairs you'll find the second bedroom, with a full bath and ample storage area. In the walk-out basement are the third bedroom and third full bathroom, with plenty of storage as well. The Teton log home floor plan will put a smile on your face every time you arrive home. One of the first things you'll have to do once you have your log home design in mind is starting the land selection and building site preparation.

Purchasing Land for Your Log Home. Before making a final decision on selecting land, have your surveyor indicate the best location for the home. Some items to consider when selecting land for your log home are since the size of the log home is the single most important cost factor, it should be one of the first things you decide upon. You'll want to think about whether you want multiple levels or single-floor living. What is large for one person may be small to someone else, so you'll want to be specific with what you want.

One design element to consider when purchasing land is the location of the log house. The site plan should indicate any natural features you want to protect and any sediment control measures you plan. Things to consider include well, septic system, driveway, utility lines, material storage areas (especially where logs will be stored/material storage trailer). Other things to consider include portable restroom facilities for workers who are building the log home, topsoil and excavation soil mounds, stump removal (rotting stumps are havens for insects and invitations to insect problems in your log home), rock (surface rock can often be cleared using heavy equipment), and drainage (you'll want to make sure you know where you want runoff to go during construction and when the final construction is completed of your log home).

In most areas, building permits will require silt fences to protect any water runoff and adjoining properties. For clearing the land you'll want to mark which trees you want to keep and remove so you can determine if your log home can be situated in that specific location.
