Determining the placement of your new log home on your
property is not a casual exercise. It can be as simple as fitting a rectangle house on a square lot to as complex
as finding the best location on 100 acres.
The key in any scenario is to carefully evaluate all the factors that go
into developing your site plan so your new home functions well within its
surroundings . Here are some of the key elements
you should consider for your site plan:
View and view angles
Summer and winter solar angles
If you already have a design, window locations
Relation to other buildings, i.e. detach garages, pole
Seasonal wind direction from the North and West
Privacy from roads and neighbors
Utility access and connection paths
Potential drainfield constraints
Determine which trees you’ll keep for aesthetics
and/or for shade
Typically your log home dealer and/or builder offer this
service and will work with you to evaluate all the elements that are specific
to your project and assist you in developing your site plan.
Keep in mind that site planning can take an enormous amount
of time, forethought and vision. But the
time invested to get it right will be realized every time you pull into the driveway.
