How To Build Your Own Log Home

When it comes to building your own log home there are many things we need to consider. I imagine you’ve already searched for various other guides online, however many of these guides don’t contain the crucial information which you need.

Most people who want to build their own log home struggle because they don’t have the right information; such as how to apply and successfully get a building permit, how to source, fell and notch logs, how to build a cabin foundation… The list goes on!

Many people also have ideas about what their log home would look like, but don’t have access to proven plans which have been used time and time again to build natural, sturdy log homes.

Review Image

“I’ve read quite a few log home construction books but this is probably the best. This log home manual went in detail of every aspect of the build from choosing the logs, the foundation stacking the logs thru the finishing touches. It was easy to understand and was full of useful tips. After reading this manual and seeing the end results I believe not only do I feel more confident that I can build my own it’s inspired me to start the process ASAP.”
