Questions about our online floorplans
Q: I am interested in one of the floorplans featured on your site. Can you send me more information or kit prices?
A: We are pleased to serve as a host for the many companies that feature timber frame home plans on this site. However, we do not sell these homes ourselves â we are merely a link between you and the various producers. If you are interested in a specific home, please reference the contact information that appears at the top right of that web page. There, you will find the name of the company that produced the plan, along with their address, phone number and (where applicable) links to their e-mail and web addresses. You must contact the company directly to get any more information about the home featured.
Q: What would be the cost for building one of the plans I see on your site?
A: As we do not sell these homes ourselves, we cannot quote you prices on the plans you see on our site. Please contact the specific home’s producer directly to discuss pricing.
Q: Where can I find more timber frame home floorplans?
A: Every issue of Timber Frame Homes magazine contains pages of floorplans like the ones we host on this site. A subscription to Timber Frame Homes includes our Annual Buyer’s Guide, which this year featured dozens of home plans of various producers. You can still buy back copies of this issue.
If you find the home plans of one specific company to be especially appealing, and want to narrow your search, you can purchase a plansbook or catalog from that particular producer. The prices of these books, as well as the number of plans they present, varies by company. Our online bookstore offers different timber frame producer’s plansbooks, making it easy for you to compare the various companies and their literature before choosing which ones to order.
Questions about our magazines
Q: Where can I find the furnishings and accessories or contact the home builders that I see featured in Timber Frame Homes?
A: Each home featured in our magazines has “Home Details” that provides information about the items you see in the article. At the back of every issue, or at the end of the online features, we print a Resources directory that gives you the contact information (address, phone number, web site) for the companies that contributed to the homes we feature. The Resources directory also contains information on the companies and products showcased in our special interest articles.

A: Yes, but please allow a few extra minutes to go through our registration process.
Q: We registered ahead of time, but have not received our tickets. What should we do?
A: Go to the “Will Call” booth at the show’s location. (Do not stand in line.) Your registration packet will be waiting for you.
Q: I received my tickets, but some of my information is incorrect. Can I get the tickets reprinted?
A: Yes. Please come to the “Will Call” booth at the show’s location. (Do not stand in line.) We will take care of it for you.
Q: What is the difference between a seminar and a show?
A: A seminar is a full-day event in a classroom type environment. There are a small number of attendees (100- 300). An unbiased speaker presents on every stage of the log home building process, answering questions, and encouraging input. There are around a dozen builders and producers present and exhibiting.
A show, on the other hand, is a three-day event involving hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of attendees. There are 50-minute free workshops on a variety of topics (building, financing, choosing a company/builder).
Q: How does it benefit me to attend both a show and a seminar?
A: A show provides the opportunity to âshop aroundâ?. This is the opportunity to gather and to see the possibilities available. The short workshops offer a brief look at decisions and pitfalls you may encounter along the road to attaining your dream home. A show is appropriate for people at every stage of the building process from âjust thinking about itâ? to âmoved in and living the log home lifeâ?. The variety of exhibitors offers something for every one.
A seminar is geared towards people who are either beginning their research or are on the path to achieving their log home dream. In the six-hour lesson, all the information that one collects at shows is whittled down in a manageable step-by-step format. A seminar offers the opportunity to ask specific questions of an unbiased source as well as to listen to othersâ questions and experiences. A seminar is a true learning and sharing environment
