The next step is to decide how much of your own labor you will invest in carrying out your free loghome plans and how much you will pay contractors. You must take the labor rates in your particular area into account to calculate how much it will cost to complete building your home. One option offered by many companies is a turn-key price - a completely-built home, all ready to move into. You must research the cost of building materials which are not included in your package as well as labor rates in your area, and then compare these costs with the turn-key price which the log home company gave you. By being your own contractor you can save from ten to twenty percent off of the cost of building a log home. If you decide that you will be the general contractor you must develop a cost-estimating worksheet which breaks down all of the costs of building your home.
The difference between a farmhouse sink and a regular kitchen sink is that the farm basin has an apron front that shows when installed, whereas a regular kitchen sink is installed within the countertop and the outside of the bowl is hidden from sight. Another difference between a farmhouse sink and a regular kitchen sink is the bowl of a farm sink is usually much deeper than a regular kitchen sink and has a much larger capacity. Most farm sinks come in single-bowl styles; however, it is also possible to find them in dual-bowl and even triple-bowl styles.
Probably the most distinguishing feature of a farmhouse sink is its size. Originally designed more for utilitarian purposes than for beauty, the farm house sink has always been a practical addition to any kitchen that sees a lot of use. However, with a resurgence in interest in retro design, there is a wide variety of farm basins to choose from that will fit perfectly within any kitchen design scheme, regardless of the amount of use.
Farmhouse sinks come in a variety of materials, the most popular of which are stainless steel, white glazed fireclay, and marble. As an added touch, some farm sinks may have floral designs painted on or carved into the surface of the apron of the basin. Farm basins cost quite a bit more than traditional stainless steel kitchen basins, especially those made from marble or other more costly materials, but they can help transform an otherwise dull kitchen into a culinary showplace.
