Greg and his wife drove over 200 miles to visit a model log home outside Fredericksburg, VA (No longer a Model).  Impressed with what they saw, they started with our model’s floor plan and modified it to fit their needs.  Using the computer and fax machine to design their dream log home and prepare the construction drawings. This is their story:

After answering a few questions, Greg’s first faxed sketches were enough for us to quote a log home kit price.

No outside dimensions are supplied in the plan view, so Greg faxed this.

Using AutoCAD LT, we now begin the design work.
We decide to complete the  log home floor plan in sections.

There are several ways to approach the design of the home. The layout will vary from the  hallway to the great room, the guest bedrooms, and the bath.

B & H faxed Greg three options:

1st option for the design of the guest wing of the log home;
B&H's option #1 for the design of the guest wing of the log home

B&H’s second option for the design of the guest wing of the log home.
B&H's option #2 for the design of the guest wing of the log home.

B&H’s option #3 for the design of the guest wing of the log home.
B&H's option #3 for the design of the guest wing of the log home.

Greg Responds with
another design:

No problem! We change the hallway as requested and now include
the kitchen and great room as shown in his last floor plan
(shown again on the left below for your convenience).

Greg responds with a modified kitchen design and adds a linen closet to the guest bath.

And so the correspondence continues until the final floor plan below
met with the approval of Greg and his wife Chris.
Total lapsed time from start to finish, about three months.
