Looking for innovative ways to save when building a log home? Check out the June 2013 issue of Country’s Best Cabins, hitting newsstands April 30 and featuring a home tour with 1867 Confederation customer Derek Zoldy who decided to build off grid.
Rooftop solar energy, LED lighting, propane appliances, low-flow toilets and a tankless water heater are just some of the cost-saving steps Zoldy incorporated in his 1,400-square foot dream home in Haliburton, Ontario. The result is an energy-efficient, year-round retreat the whole family embraces, adapting new ‘greener’ habits like charging mobile devices during the day when the sun is out.
As an added bonus, Zoldy saved $10,000 right from the start by avoiding high costs associated with bringing power lines to his property. You’ll find more on his cost-saving choices, along with stunning images of his hybrid 1867 Confederation log and timber frame home, in the June issue of Country’s Best Cabins which zeroes in on budget conscious building tips.
