Many times, when the phone rings it is an inquiry about a Log Cabin. As we all know a Log Cabin can be beautiful, the look is something very special. Before I go much further let me confess that I am not a Log Cabin expert. But here is what I do know about them:
- Beauty – everyone agrees that a Log Cabin can be beautiful.
- Expense – yes, log cabins tend to be expensive
- Upkeep – a log cabin is a High-Maintenance creature.
Generally Modular Homes do not compete with Log Cabins because they are basically so different.
A couple years ago we had a call from New Jersey, the Garden State with a very specific request and it went this way, “….I want a “log Cabin” in the woods of Vermont with a green roof. Can you build that for me?’ Since every home is 100% Custom Built the answer was, “…sure we can.” But as the conversation went on the homeowner let it be known they didn’t want the expense of a Log Cabin. The solution was to build a Modular Home with a Green Roof and use “Log Cabin Siding.” Wala, presto, ta-da, and There ya go, the problem solved! I’ve told you Vermont Modular is good.
Now, fast forward to last fall when a homeowner called from Connecticut wanting a Log Cabin with no maintenance and that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
Take a look at today’s photograph it shows you the solution for one of our newest homeowners from The Nutmeg State who was building their home in The Green Mountain State.
Survey – 1) do you like the look? Yes? No?
2) would you install this siding on your home? Yes? No?
This survey should be fun!
