This is referred to as the Base Package Series because they are designed to keep costs down. Yes, they are not as luxurious as our other plans and packages, yet they exceed the quality of what the competition usually sells. The plans and specifications in the Base Package Series have been selected to maintain the objective of keeping the homes affordable, help you stay on budget, and save money. A full log home is less expensive to build than a half log home, which is why we designed our Base Package Series around our 8"x8" full log wall system with vertical corners. We use solid wood 2"x10" floor joists and scissors style roof trusses (cathedral/vaulted in the Great Room) with common flat trusses throughout the rest of the home. Compared to our other plans and packages, we have designed the homes with a few less windows, less fireplace stone, and simplified cabinetry & interior doors. Of course, you still have the flexibility to select different faucets, cabinets, etc. The floor plans are designed with less complexity and fewer offsets. Wood decks are more expensive than concrete patios, which also lowers costs. Remember, our packages include more than the other companies - whether it be the Shell Plus or the Complete package. Our Base Package Series homes are of higher quality and can be more than a simple cabin getaway, they can also be your full time home. Keep in mind that you have the flexibility to change, add, or remove anything within the package. Below is a great overview of what comes in our "Base Package Series" Materials/Kit packages:
