WHEN SHOULD I REACH OUT TO BEGIN PLANNING MY PROJECT?
The design phase will depend on whether you choose a pre-designed model or customize. The design process for a custom home typically, can take anywhere from 1-3 months, depending on the scope of your design changes. Once the client has approved their model and design, we apply for the building permits, which can take a couple of months, depending on the city and location. The order for the Pluspuu Homes kits can be made, only after, receiving the building permits. Once the manufacturing order has been submitted, the delivery time of the home kits to the build site is approximately three months. From the client's initial call with a member of the Pluspuu sales team, to the delivery of the home kits to the build site, the process can take up to 9 months. To account for any unforeseen obstacles, we would suggest scheduling an initial call with Pluspuu, one year prior to your desired move in date.
WHAT DOES IT COST TO BUILD A PLUSPUU HOME?
Every construction project is unique with multiple variables. Therefore, giving an exact price for the construction process is difficult. The benefit of Pluspuu Homes construction process, is the non-settling log technology. The advanced engineering, allows for a Pluspuu Home to be built within a timeframe of 12 weeks/per 1000 SQ FT, saving construction time and labour expenses. A Pluspuu Homes agent can provide you with a more precise cost-estimate, during your initial project planning meeting.
WHAT IS A NON-SETTLING LOG?
The non-settling log permits the use of a wide range of advanced architectural solutions and structural details, such as windows and doors without covering strips. While the non-settling log system is more expensive than the lamella log, the difference in price is compensated by the fact that no allowance needs to be made for settling and there is no need for post-construction adjustment of screw jacks, windows, doors, etc. Additionally, the efficiency of non-settling logs used in construction, allows for competitive pricing when comparing the costs to a traditional stick-frame build.
