How do I get pricing for a Custom Modular Home & Log Home?

How long does it take to get a rough estimated cost and is there any charge?
Normally only a couple of days depending on all the components and upgrades of the home that you want to be included. Please keep in mind that without a house floor plan and/or site septic design it is virtually impossible to quote accurate numbers. Any estimate quoted is very rough ball park numbers only and does not or will not reflect final numbers. No charge for estimates.
