vision: noun \ vi·sion \ˈvi-zhən -a thought, concept, or object formed by the imagination.
Can you envision your dream home? An enchanted, wee cabin in the woods maybe, or an enormous log lodge or maybe something in between. What kind of home have you formed in your mind's eye? I bet it is beautiful! There is nothing we like more, than to help you accomplish your dream! Below are some dreams we helped make a reality.
A recent addition we completed. Turned out fantastic!
What about a budget? What will you need to save in order for your dream to become a reality? This is a good question and a good place to start in your planning. Of course there are many options and details that will move this number around, but let's start with a basic dry-in number. To come up with an estimate, begin with about $90.00 a sq. ft. for the dry-in.
Construction terms: What is included in a "dry-in" ?
A dry-in includes all logs for the exterior walls, including gables; all logs that make up the roof system, ie: purlins and carriers. Logs for second story floor or loft floor, ie: joists and summer beam. Loft floor ie: t/g knotty pine. Standard sub floor; standard finished roof system. *Doors and windows (our choice) up to 7 openings. Everything chinked and stained with the Sashco system.
Covered porches will be calculated by the same sq. ft. rate.
[Dormers are extra]
*Doors do not include hardware
We are waiting for your call.
I would like to continue with the introductions of our Team Members.
Jesse: Restoration Specialist
1. Tell us about yourself Jesse.
- I'm from PA but I want to be a native Montanan. I enjoy fly fishing. I love building log homes. When I was a kid, every Christmas, there was a documentary of a guy who went up to Alaska, who lived off his land and built his own log cabin. And I always thought, that's what I wanted to do. I used to live in Montana til 6th grade and then had to move out, moved all the way to PA, and as soon as I got out of highschool I knew I wanted to go back to Montana. I knew I wanted to be in log home building, so I googled Montana log home building and found MSLC.
2. What do you appreciate about working at MSLC?
- It's all fun! Nelson is the most energetic boss I've ever had. Usually my bosses were serious...which isn't always healthy. He's serious when he needs to be...but he's just the best, energetic boss I've ever had.
3. What do you believe your strongest contribution is to MSLC?
- Jesse was unsure, so co-worker Gene answers for him: "Jesse is the most easy going person...when it get's stressful he keeps a good attitude...steady and calm."
Wishing you a delightful summer. May your vision become a reality!
