hi..i'm jerry and planning to build my log home on a riverside location in
northwestern ohio...but BOY! the issues! doing my "due diligence" but
over--freakin--whelmed with the options..(i guess northern white pine)
I want to..and i will... do this...it is my retirement dream.
Question: (guidance?)..if a log company quotes a reasonable price for the
"dry in" and i contract the land clearance/basement/well/etc. Where are the
hidden expenses? Where does the log company really leave you?
this is what scares me...this is just a 2000 sq ft home..I
want to incorporate a basement and a geothermal well for HVAC..but i have
visons of a truck of logs....four guys..and being left with the aftermess.
I do realize the contract spells out the actions but they are better at writing
contracts than i am at reading them!
recommendations/comments will be greatly appreciated: just to hear from someone
who faced these same issues/thoughts will be my starting point.
Again..i can do the math..the "hidden expense" (not just construction but
the maintenance) is the scarry! help me in my dream! thanks!...jerry
