Component pricing


TO 'KIT' or NOT TO 'KIT'...

One of the common ways that many log home suppliers offer their products to potential customers is to give them a log home “kit” or “package” price. This price differs widely from company to company, each with its own combination of materials. Offerings range from providing:

…a random bunch of logs (freight is often not included and ‘extra’)

…complete construction (“turnkey” pricing)

…everything in between.

For many clients, this approach is not only confusing but often times misleading and hard to compare one company with another. It also doesn’t answer the two most important questions in building a home…

“What will it cost to build the home I want?”

…and (here is the most overlooked question of all)

“What level of quality can I expect?”

ECOHOUSEMART has provided the highest quality log home building components used in building luxury log cabins, homes, and commercial projects for over 20 years to a discriminating international market – that’s an experience! We can arrange for you to see a completed ECOHOUSEMART home so you can see the quality for yourself; you can also see a 12,000 square foot commercial building constructed of ECOHOUSEMART log components in Evergreen, Colorado.

ECOHOUSEMART’s log structures range from 1,000 square feet in size to 100,000 square feet.

“What will my log home cost?”

A typical 1,000 square foot cabin might start with an ECOHOUSEMART component cost of $60,000. Depending on building site development costs, the complexity of the design, and level of finishes, complete construction costs (“turnkey” pricing) would be in the $200,000 to $300,000 range.

Because there are so many options and variables in any home design, it is difficult to provide accurate cost estimates until we can explore a series of questions with you. Until then, we can make some assumptions and provide you with estimated ECOHOUSEMART components, adding options as you request them.

“What is typically included?”

The basic ECOHOUSEMART components order typically includes:

Drawings of the detailed design modified to meet local building codes

-Engineering and stamp are not included and will need to be provided by an engineer licensed in your building area.

Main level logs to a specified wall height

-Pre-cut to size, pre-drilled for electrical, and tagged for assembly

Interior posts, if they are required

Exposed log beams, if they are required

Gable/upper level interior and exterior siding

-Basic design assumes gables/upper levels are framed

Freight to build site where house will be built.

-Freight is included only as close as a 40’ container can be safely delivered


In addition to a basic order, we can also supply a series of ECOHOUSEMART options. These can include windows, interior and exterior doors, ceiling paneling, framed wall paneling, flooring, trim, interior and exterior railings, trusses and more.
