Site Layout

We visited the site on November 13th to mark and locate where the house, shop, driveways, and septic fields will be located. Doug Copenhaver from Snowy River Log Homes (SNRL) and Custom Contracting was there along with Mark McNeal from SNRL to get everything marked. Here's a shot of Doug checking out the future view.

The picture below shows Doug and Mark finishing up the final elevations for the driveway.

We're waiting for information from Allegheney Energy to get the power extended to the property- hopefully the permits will be ready and we'll be excavating and putting in the foundation before Christmas.

Next steps are getting the permits filed and should have an update on the log kit delivery date soon as well.

Here's our future home site, house will sit about 150 feet in to the woods. Property is a total of 28.5 acres on 3 lots at the top of a small mountain. We're about 4 miles west of Romney, WV.

Contract Signed

We signed the contracts for the new house- Log kit from Snowy River Log Homes and the build by Custom Contracting. These are both actually the same company, out of Hedgesville, WV. The owner is Doug Copenhaver but everyone there has been great to work with so far.

House will be 2187 square feet plus a full basement and a lot of decking and porches. Will post the plans and drawings later.

Actual build will probably start in early to mid December after the permits are obtained. The next step is to meet at the property and stake out the final locations for the house, garage/shop, and driveways, will meet Doug in Romney on 11/11.
