What Hearthstone Provides
It is very important to know exactly what is provided with a Log, Timber Frame or Timber Trace™ (Structural Panel) home package. Hearthstone's basic package consists of Timber Frame or Log walls, rafters, beams, girders, porch timbers, special slotted jambs, spline system, hardware and roof sheathing installed.. Essentially, this constitutes the Log or Timber Frame skeleton of the home. On some models, conventional trusses replace Log roof systems.
What You Provide
You need to provide foundations, stonework, sub-floor, and all facets of the completion of the house beyond the timber frame or log framework such as heating and electrical systems, cabinetry, floor covering, plumbing, etc. There are no special foundation requirements. They are the same as conventional construction foundation specifications. In many instances we can offer contractor services, recommend contractors or assist you in finding a contractor yourself.
Blueprints and Architectural Staff
Four full sets of working blueprints OR shop drawings of your designer or architect plan are provided with each standard house sold. There is an opportunity for one mark up set of plans before plans are finalized. Purchasers of custom home packages receive a floor plan, foundation plan and all elevations with a window schedule, porches, patios and other necessary building details.
Hearthstone Assembly Service
Hearthstone provides skilled crews to install all of their Home Packages. We erect the Log or Timber Frame skeleton on your existing, custom-installed foundation and sub floor. We will provide Assembly Services anywhere we sell a home or commercial structure. The investment is modest compared to the value of our trained, professional staff and assembly crew.
