Blue Ridge Log Cabins Tour and Their Smallest Cabin Pricing
We asked for some prices to make the single module cabin the largest size they can make it. We also asked them to price it with and without the vaulted ceiling. And we asked how much it will be to put it on our land, 31.3 miles away.
The largest size module they make is 50-feet long. Their modules are all 12’9” wide. We had it priced with a flat ceiling and with a vaulted ceiling.
With a flat ceiling it will cost $187,500. With a vaulted ceiling it will cost $202,600. This price is good for ten days, then the price goes up.
Blue Ridge Log Cabins does not sell kits or shells. They sell complete modular log cabins with the power, plumbing, cabinets and fixtures installed.
Everything says that it is complete. (Even including light bulbs.) That is to contrast with log cabin kits and log cabin shells. It is a modular log cabin. The price includes a completed cabin. The price includes transportation to our site. The price includes putting the cabin on our foundation. The foundation is not included, but transportation and setup is. The cabin will be positioned using a crane. That is the only way they set up their modular log cabins.
What is not included?
The list of additional costs mostly matches the cost to put anything there. So far every company includes slightly different things, but nobody includes site prep and the foundation.
- Building permit
- Site prep
- Water and Sewer hookup
- Temporary power and permanent power
- Connect delivered cabin to water and sewer
What else is not included?
- Termite protection (important for logs!)
- Final floor finish
- Any finish on interior walls
- Exterior stain or log preservative
The price does not included HVAC. So far nobody includes heat or AC in a modular cabin.
What is included?
The logs are eastern white pine grown in Virginia, North and South Carolina. The Tryon sidewalls uses 13 courses of logs.
The exterior walls have R19 insulation. The roof has R38 insulation. Floor insulation is not included.
The model is the same width, but it is a LOT higher than the Tryon cabin.
The Tryon walls will be 9 boards high inside. So count up to 9 and there’s your ceiling.
To get a better idea of the ceiling height, look at Bedroom #2 in the Blowing Rock II Model. That is the bedroom off of the kitchen with bunk beds. This is the Tryon ceiling height.
This model bedroom is 11-feet long. The Tryon bedroom is 11’11” long, so about a foot longer than this room.
The kitchen cabinets are included. They are Maple, Oak or Hickory with soft close doors and drawers.
The price includes granite countertops and a stainless steel undermount sink.
We can buy the cabin with the appliances so we can roll the cost into the mortgage or we can bring our own appliances with us. The included appliances are black or stainless steel.
All of the plumbing fixtures that the plan shows are included. The bath cabinets are available in Maple, Oak or Hickory, too.
The roofs are Owens Corning architectural shingles with a lifetime warranty. If we want a metal roof, they can deliver the cabin ready for it and we can have a metal roof installed ourselves.
Windows are Low-E insulated double hung windows with taupe finish.
There are a lot of options available. You can really customize these cabins.
If you go higher, you can add a loft.
Many plans included a loft. You can modify any plan.
Every home is unique and different, we’ve never built the same home twice. We’ll start with model that meets most of your design goals, and then modify it as needed. We can also work completely off your unique sketch within our manufacturing parameters.
By manufacturing parameters, they mean making it in modules 12’9” wide up 50-feet long.
Dormer windows can add light and headroom in a loft.
A shed dormer adds a lot of extra space in a loft.
The windows shown in each plan are included and you can add additional windows if you want to.
Blue Ridge Log Cabins can add a deck or porch for us, but it is not included in the price I got.
Heat and air conditioning are not included, but you can add a mini-split or a more conventional heating system.
You can have the cabin prepped for your HVAC contractor or talk to them about adding something to the cabin so you can roll it into the home loan.
You can take a Virtual Tour of Blue Ridge Log Cabins Models.
