Not only does CabinSmiths offer dozens of Honest Abe standard plans that can be modified to meet the specific needs of the homeowner, three other house plan development options are available:
- provide your own plan
- have us create original plans from your concept
- choose one of our customer-inspired plans
Develop Floor Plans Early
Most people who want a log or timber frame home have been envisioning how they want their house to look from the outside for a long time before they actually have a plan for building it. They also have a sense of what they want and need on the inside, but often they are not quite sure where to begin.
As we help our clients on their path to becoming homeowners, we’re often asked how to get the house plans started for their new log or timber frame home. CabinsSmiths is here to help with that.
It is prudent to start the plan design process as early as possible once the decision is made to build a wood home. You can download or review online our full plan book.
Our plans can also be modified to create commercial buildings, or we can custom create any type of custom structure from lodging to restaurants to offices to retail space.
Plans are free for customers who buy a home package from CabinSmiths.
Having plans enable you to make modifications, and plans will be necessary when approaching potential contractors and lenders. It’s much easier to change your dream on paper than it is after you’ve started the building process.
Many customers choose a plan they like and have us modify it for their own specific needs and desires. Many people choose one of our standard plans and make it their own. Click the standard plans button above to see the entire collection.
We want you to be assured that working in conjunction with CabinSmiths, the Honest Abe Design Team can turn original ideas that are just concepts and dreams into plans that a customer can really think about and review. It sounds cliche, but we really have had people bring us their ideas sketched out on a napkin or scrap paper, and they’ve become plans for beautiful homes.
We’re fortunate to be able to offer creations by past customers, like the cabin and plan shown here. Click the customer-created plans button above to review some of the most beautiful floor plans for log homes and timber frame homes that started as a customer’s dream. The Honest Abe design team is pretty proud of them, because they were able to capture exactly what the homeowner had imagined. The plans in this collection were graciously shared by the homeowners who conceived of them. They represent a lifetime of passion and many years of planning for some. They’re being shared for inspiration and to give others confidence that a dream can become a forever home.
