What questions top the list at Timber Block homes?  Many times, they have to do with cost. We get questions such as “How much are your homes?” Plus, “How much will your home with land cost?” And we are frequently asked. “How do I compare costs between home building companies?”


If you have already talked to any home building company, you will likely know, there are many factors to consider when trying to determine your home building cost. And if you think about it, of course there is! This is one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your life, and of course there are many things to consider. It shouldn’t be similar to ordering take out! (“Hi ______, I’ll take House Number 3, with a side order of double paned windows, an extra large order of shingles and an outdoor living space for dessert!”)

If you do or did happen to come across a home building company that can simply answer the question, “How Much?” without knowing anything about your land, location, building costs in your area, your floor plan, and so on, then be aware! It’s likely they may be telling you a number, with a few hidden costs. Determining your home building cost will take any home building company time and knowledge to end up with a fair and proper quote.

Also, be sure to have a proper quote on your floor plan. Some floor plans may be more “basic” while some may be more complex. This may make a difference.

If you’re building a log home, this price may vary. It all depends on the size of your logs. With Timber Block homes, our wood is insulated to ensure better energy efficiency. To get a highly energy efficient traditional log home – especially one equivalent to the energy efficiency of a Timber Block home, your logs would have to be incredibly big. In fact, it’s almost impossible to have a traditional log home with the same efficiency of a Timber Block home.


Specific to Timber Block homes, we have stock plans, all which can be customized as well as full custom homes. If you want to have a good idea of how much it would cost to build a Timber Block home, simply give us a call, and we’ll be able to help you determine that price.
