basically, i want a big rectangle house, colorado style with the kitchen, living room and dining all one space and its all lofty with all windows and a fireplace on the main wall (think ski chalet), 1800 sq ft or less (not including basement) and the main bedroom upstairs in the loft, 2 bed on the main level.
the only plans I can find r log home plans in this style - but we arent going to do the log home route. When we are ready to build, can I just take a log home layout to the builder, and they draw up the plans for a regular house? How much does that cost? I'd rather find it and order it online, rather than have someone custom do it.
I've never built a new home before.
