log-plan.jpgBlueprints are $1,250 for the Sportsman and can be as high as $3,000 for other models.  This will show you how to build your cabin.  Present it to your local building inspector, obtain your permit and start building.  Most handymen, with some friends, can put this package together in just a few weekends...all that on a small budget.  If you need some help, we can bring this cabin to lock-up stage for about $42,000 or even turn key if needed.




We can help you with excavation, septic tank, plumbing, electrical, fireplace...everything to meet your local building code inspection. The building process / cost will depend on you (time & money). We recommand you do as much as possible to keep your cost down. You can look at $150 to $200 sq2 for turn key.


The Sportsman Cabin on a full basement. (extra) Model home in Ste-Annes,MB.

Instead of an above ground footing, this cabin has the footing & a 4' basement; plus a 4' poney wall on top of basement walls made of 2x8 ptw frame. This provides you a full basement and an extra 670 sq2 of living space; also allow for lots of nice 48x36 windows all around (up to 8) giving extra lights. The cement foundation part can be back filled living only 4' of visible basement and less stairs to climb. The average cost for the basement is approx  $30,000+ depending on location and options, etc.



Other log homes models.

We can build almost any thing you want, from small cabin to bigger lodge. Keep in mind that we promote the Sportsman cabin and the Sportsmen Lodge as we already have the materials in stock;  including design, architect,  Manitoba eng. stamped blueprints.

Any different cabin of same size could cost you about $10-20,000 more and take as long as 9 months to deliver as we have to "re-engineer" it entirely to comply with Canadian building code, blue prints, trusses, etc.  We are very competitive and by far the best quality / price in Manitoba.
