The Sunset Valley Chalet
The Sunset Valley Chalet was started by stretching the popular Sundown Chalet another 4’ in length, for a little more room on the main floor. Some put the ¾ loft in, which is an inexpensive option, and adds a couple hundred more square feet, but there is plenty room with this beautiful and massive log home design. With the huge prow of glass and 24’ ceiling, this log home package will impress you. By adding a couple extra rows of logs in the loft level, this gives even more glass up front, but more importantly, more headroom in every room upstairs in the loft, so a popular option on many of our Chalets, although this comes standard on this model. This big log home package is still a bargain at 98K, as shown, including basement materials in our package, and includes the larger 9” Swedish coped and peeled logs! Figure about 92K without basement materials (then called the Sunset Chalet), on a frost wall. Final price depends on log wall size, lumber and materials market at time of purchase, and your customized design.
