How much do log homes cost? What do you have to pay to get logs from A to B? We don’t deal in arm and legs, when people come into the yard and ask me “how much for one of those?” They are always pleasantly surprised with my answer. Size does matter and so does style. Believe it or not there are many different ways to build with logs (horizontal fully-scribed, post & beam and piece on piece to name a few). On average you can expect to pay $4000 per square meter of floor area for a finished turn key log home with approximately $1600 per square meter of that going towards the log shell itself. This is based on a house around 120 – 220 square meters floor area.
