What Happens Next

It’s been one week since Blue Ridge Log Cabins came up the Mountain with our amazing log cabin home and constructed the modular log cabin sections in just about 24 hours. It is such an efficient way to build, but we’re not done yet! Since we have a construction loan on this build, the bank sent out an appraiser to appraise the build so far. Based on the appraisal they can release funds for sub-contractor payments. His appraisal assessed the build progress at 68% complete in just 2 days.

When Blue Ridge Log Cabins delivers the modular log cabins they are very close to complete. This is our third cabin from Blue Ridge and our largest. To be 68% complete in 2 days is amazing on a home this size. It is obvious that the size of the Jocassee V results in a much bigger job to finish than our Tryon or Blowing Rock models. Not only that, we have chosen to customize more items in this house that need to be done on site. Mike and his crew will be finishing the ground floor while the Blue Ridge crew work on the upper levels – we expect the on-site buildout and finishing to take 8-12 weeks including our custom deck with massive cedar posts. We are not done 100% until all of this is complete.
