Most log homes are truly things of beauty and stunning works of fine art. While log homes kits tend to be frowned upon by bespoke craftsmen, there is a place, and indeed a demand, for log cabin packages, from the logs only to the shell of a home to the full and complete package. And it’s no wonder this log home kit, design by Coventry Log Homes, is called Sugarhill because it’s a pretty sweet design for an even sweeter price. While the average log home can cost anywhere from $150 to $300 per square foot, meaning a 1,128 square foot home could cost anywhere from $169,000 to $338,000 or more, depending on materials and services used. This beautiful log home can be purchased as a full package deal for up to just $93,000. Plus you can add extras, including kitchen cabinets and countertops, finish floorings, stains and finishes as well as other miscellaneous personal preference type items. This beautiful log home makes it easier to realize your log home dreams.
For over 20 years, Coventry Log Cabins, now headed by Jeff Elliott, has been in the business of creating wonderful log homes and making customers’ log home dreams come true. Along with his younger brother and manufacturing team, Jeff Elliott and Coventry Log Homes do a superb job of ensuring the accuracy and quality of all their kiln-dried, pre-cut and numbered logs that have seen thousands of dream homes come to life. While Coventry builds cabins with knotty pine and rustic charm, they also build a premiere series distinguished by exposed architectural post-and-beam style roof and loft systems and, no surprise, the Sugarhill log home is one of their premiere designs.
The Sugarhill log home is a cozy, modified chalet style log home with an open-concept living area, complete with cathedral ceilings. The upstairs, of this three bedroom house, is a loft which boasts the master bedroom suite as well as a master bath and is not only private but also very open giving a feeling of even more space. Also included is a large deck which runs along nearly two full walls of the 24 foot by 30 foot home, and there is a one-car garage below the main floor as well. Everything about this home says luxury log home living but all for a low-budget price.
While over the years the term chalet has changed and is often applied to vacation houses whether built in Alpine style or not, a chalet is a type of house or building native to the Alpine region in Europe and is characterized by a heavy, gently sloping roof with wide, well-supported eaves set at right angles to the front of a house. Typically crafted from rough-hewn timber, a chalet’s origins shine through in its raised stone foundation with steeply pitched gable roof, broad exterior galleries and even quaint, decorative woodwork with expansive windows that often frame the most breathtaking mountain views but, of course, the windows in your Sugarhill log home will frame whatever beautiful views you have chosen that happen to surround your property.
Although a family owned and operated business, Coventry Log Homes works hard to meet the demanding building code requirements and have worked especially diligently of going ‘green.’ As such, they produce a full line of energy efficient homes that not only meet codes, but exceed them, and also meet Energy Star requirements. They support and applaud responsible efforts towards eco-friendliness and work hard to sustain renewable resources. So, you can feel good about purchasing from a company that is in the business of wood and knows how important our forests are. If this is something you care about or even if it isn’t Coventry Log Homes provide exceptional quality for low prices and are certainly worth checking out.
