Another from our popular Lodge series, this custom home based on the Birch Hill using our Full Exposure Exterior Wall System throughout will be built in a lakes neighborhood in northwestern Michigan. The main level is about 1800 sq. ft. with the front center section under a flat ceiling/Beamed Mid-Floor System. To the center rear is the living room under a cathedral Beamed Roof System. The kitchen and dining wing is to the left (with a large screen porch adjacent), and the master bedroom wing is to the right; both wings are under a cathedral Beamed Roof System. Upstairs is about 500 sq. ft. with two additional bedrooms and a shared full-bath, and a loft sitting area that looks down onto the living area below; the entire upper level is under a cathedral Beamed Roof System.
The lower package price assumes more drywall finishes, while the upper price assumes more exposed timbers and wood ceiling finishes. Select the wall system, mid-floor system, and roof system(s) you would like for your project based on aesthetics, budget, and practicality. Our package price can be reduced by removing any of the exterior finish materials that we typically supply (siding/ trim, roof shingles, windows/doors). Note that when shipping outside the northeast almost all packages have those items removed, as shipping them long distances doesn't usually make sense.
Depending on framing options you select, the price could be lower or higher. Pricing is expected to be valid through 2022, but may need to change if there are significant changes in material costs before then (currently an extremely volatile market). Walkout basements and/or garages can typically be added to any home, but are not included in our initial price (whether drawn on plans or not). Prices are based on engineering requirements of up to 90 mile per hour wind speed, up to 65 pound snow load, and low seismic activity zones. Our packages can be adapted for higher ratings; this may result in a higher price. Pricing errors on our site are rare, but a price change for your package may be required if a mistake is found.
