WOO = We Offer Options

WOO Means

We Offer Options

By Jack Hutslar
Owner . est 2001
Log . Timber Frame . Eco-Panel . RuStick

What does this mean when referring to Log and Timber Frame Homes? Please allow me to give you a few examples of the options that we offer when discussing the style, design, and layout of your future home.
Keep in mind, when designing “your” home, you need not settle for what some other person or couple had decided to build. In that regard, if you lived in a home that you really liked, we can recreate that home for you as either a log home or timber frame home.
Back to options now. What choices do we provide for you?
[1] 1st or 2nd floor master [loft?] bedroom suite can be customized to your liking. [2] Other guest bathrooms. [3] Upper loft or bedroom?
[4] Back deck can be configured as a screened in porch. [5] Enlarge or shrink the footprint. [6] Add more porch or porches.
[7] Add a basement or build on a crawl space. [8] Add a one or two car garage – free standing, connected, under. [9] Add a breezeway.
[10] 10 log styles. [11] 4 window systems. [12] 5 roof systems.
[13] Incorporate other plans. [14] Log or Timber Frame or Eco-Panel? Finally, [15] Does your final design fit your budget ideas or do we need to look again at more and less costly options?
Some companies have set designs. Some companies might also add on “change fees” when you alter their designs. Making modifications and changes is what we do to design the home that just right for you … and there is no added fee to make these changes.
= = = = =
We offer a very good combination of Price, Quality of Materials and Service. When “their” Price looks good, then start asking specific questions about the Quality of Materials including the actual package content and Service including warranties.
Jack Hutslar is an authorized dealer for Honest Abe Log Homes, Southern TimberCraft and Sansin Enviro Stains. Offered also are stain and repair services.
