Headquartered in North Carolina, eLoghomes designs and manufactures customizable log home materials packages that it sells directly to consumer home buyers across the United States. It also provides an optional construction service to install the customer’s package. The company recently updated its website, introducing an easy-to-use selector for its 200+ models, providing more information on its construction service, and adding content on energy efficiency of log homes.
Cost of Materials
The cost of the materials used to create an eloghome is not for the faint of heart. The cost of construction is not only expensive, but also requires a good deal of planning to ensure the project is completed on time and on budget. However, there are a few ways to save money without sacrificing quality and style. The most obvious of which is to shop around for the best deal. One of the best places to start is by requesting a quote from an industry expert.
Cost of Labor
Labor is one of the most challenging costs to accurately calculate, and this is mainly due to the fact that it requires a great deal of judgment and experience. The labor cost of each worker will include not only their hourly wage but also employer-paid taxes, Social Security, health insurance, workman’s comp, auto expenses, paid holidays and vacations, employee meetings and cell phones. All these factors must be incorporated into your base rate, or what you charge per hour. There is a popular cost estimate formula that relies on the rule of two, which aims to provide an estimate for both materials and labor costs, but this method does not account for all of the nuances of project costs and should not be used as a primary means of estimating the total cost of your project.
