What is a Log Cabin Shell?
I know you’re probably asking this question. We talk a lot about log cabin shells on our website and with our visitors who stop by to see us at Fall Creek Land Company, so I wanted to take a few moments to give you a sense of what log cabin shells are (and what they are not), and why they can be so beneficial to buyers, especially those not quite certain want they want in a mountain home.
Many folks I talk to about our properties here at South Mountain Peaks and Grandview Peaks tell me they pretty much know what they’d like in their mountain retreat, but once they see all of the different options and directions they can go, they’re more puzzled than ever.
Buying your own mountain home doesn’t have to be confusing. Think of it as a really tall blooming fruit tree, ripe with one fruit after another waiting to be picked. That isn’t such a bad thing. Not really. The difficulty is just deciding which ones to choose.
A log cabin shell gives buyers the freedom to design and build whatever atmosphere they want in their new home. Maybe they’re big on greenery and want lots of plant shelving. Or they might be a fan of decks and are just itching to spend their days and nights sprawled out in a rocking chair admiring the view or hovering over a telescope searching for falling stars. And if you’re handy with home projects or enjoy interior design, you can take matters into your own hands and finish your new home on your own. But for those needing some assistance, we have a licensed architect on staff with over twenty years experience ready to help you plan the final look and feel of your cabin. And our team’s always available to recommend reliable local contractors to help you put the finishing touches on your new home.
Besides the flexibility they offer, log cabin shells can be a cost-effective way to design your new mountain home with shells and their lots starting as low as $99,900. All Fall Creek cabin shells come equipped with a long list of standard features. Among these are: a 4’ crawl space; layout ranging in size from 1217-1625 square feet; sub-flooring; a covered front porch and open side or back deck; tilt-in double hung windows; asphalt architectural shingled roofs, ground treated termite protection, septic system approval and a lot ready for underground electric, phone and DSL. Homeowners are responsible for all finishing work not included in the price of the cabin shell, such as plumbing, wiring, floor covering, cabinetry and countertops, and other work required to complete the home inside and out.
Cabin shells give buyers the chance to create their own mountain home from start to finish at a pace that meets their schedule, their budget and their personal vision. It’s an alternative that may not be for everyone, but when you do begin shopping for that mountain getaway, it’s just one of several alternatives you might want to keep in mind.
