When Should You Start Your Blueprints?

It's never too early...

Cedar HomeNOW is the time to begin the blueprint process.

1. Beat the rush - Building permits take longer to process during the peak building season.

2. Lock in prices - The cost for building materials and labor to construct homes is very competitive in the current economy. Contractors and subs require blueprints to issue accurate construction bids.

3. Obtain financing - Lenders require final blueprints and an approved building permit to close a loan. Interest rates are still good, but no one can predict how long they will last.Cedar Log Home

4. Reserve the best builder and subs - Contractors and subcontractors are lining up work for the next building season.

5. Get faster bid response - Contractors and subcontractors have more time to prepare bids during the off season.

6. Avoid costly on-site changes - Start blueprints now and and allow ample time to review the plans (and make changes) before construction starts.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

"The Best Place Possible"

It is our hope that this letter will ease your mind that you have found the best place possible to start the exciting journey of building your cedar home.

While driving in North Bend, WA in the summer of 2004, we passed a charming small log home. The owner of this home noticed our interest and invited us to see her home. She was quite proud of it and was used to the attention it received from passersby. She gave us the name and number for Mike and Judy Flanagan (Cedar Homes of Washington).

After meeting with Mike and Judy at their beautiful home, our expectations that they were indeed honest, decent people to work with- were met. We are now nearing completion of our home, and in reality, Mike and Judy's job with us is done. They could move on with other projects. Yet, they still check in with us and will continue to do so until we are complete.

In the course of building our home, we found two big advantages in choosing Cedar Homes of Washington. First, when filing the permit, Mike was there. Mike stayed with us the whole day, answering questions from the building department, enabling us to get our plans submitted in one day. The process would've taken days (and many trips) to and from to finalize this step of the process (if we did this one our own). The second advantage was, if you were to buy a package directly from Pan Abode, or perhaps another dealer, your home package would be literally dropped at your site for you to handle. Mike and Judy were right there at the drop-off, overseeing the placement of all materials, taking inventory of all materials and making sure any discrepancies were rectified.
