- Stakes for all the outside corners of your home
- Colored string
- 100’ measuring tape
- Scaled floor plan of your home
Next you'll want to square up your stakes by measuring the primary four corners diagonally to assure your stakes are squared. Check and recheck and adjust all the walls as necessary.
Once the stakes are squared to within just a couple of inches per your floor plans, go around to each stake and drive them into the ground with the hammer at least 12 ". Next take your color string and wrap it around each stake to outline the perimeter of your new log home.
Now you can actually walk through your future home in full scale and see what the views will look like from each room. This is the critical point to evaluate your placement and re-stake if desired.
