To be honest with you i have debated putting up this category because building with real logs may not be a very good idea nowadays unless you are building a "lodge" or some other big public building and require that type of structure offering a certain atmosphere . . . But interest among the average consumer remains fairly strong and maybe modern techniques off-set the older disadvantages. I do not know.
According to one website i visited the problem with genuine log building is the ongoing maintenance required over the years and it is costly. The logs are very unstable and shrink and expand with changing atmospheric conditions plus other problems.
I have never built or lived in a log home but feel nevertheless that it would be a good idea for anyone considering this type of structure to do a thorough research job before committing their resources to a log home or cabin building project. There are so many better alternatives available that building with logs would be last on my list. Building with "log siding" would probably be a better way to go to achieve the look of a log cabin but with the lower maintenance of modern building techniques and materials. In spite of what i have said here, people seem to have a very big interest in this type of building. But also i notice that a number of log home related businesses are having financial difficulty it seems to me. So be very careful with whom you do business, it is easy to start a chain of events which could cause you to lose a large amount of cash.
Just so you'll know . . . This website is advertising driven. Advertising income pays the bills like hosting fees and other expenses. I am adding another quality advertising source which i like a lot - Amazon.com.
If you the viewer of this website . . . Or a business with a free listing on my website would consider making purchases of the items that interest you through my "Amazon Ad Placements" that would be very helpful and appreciated.
When you make purchases through these Amazon links, i receive a very modest sales commission on any purchase you make, (does not need to be the pictured item) but it doesn't cost you a penny. The prices are exactly the same as buying on Amazon directly, and there is no extra charge to you: Amazon pays the commission fees.
Also, would like to mention . . . That the links (listings) to websites presented on my websites are listed "Free Of Charge" to their respective owners. Please help me by sending links or website addresses of any person, business or organization who would benefit by being listed on any of my websites in their respective categories (subject related categories). I charge for featured listings and listings which are to remain pinned to the top of the page. Otherwise, all listings are free and temporarily placed at the top of the page.
Also, Very Important Thing To Do . . . Please do not give a deposit or cash payment to any of these businesses listed here without first doing your research on them and establishing some sort of assurance that they are going to fulfill their end of the deal. I have not, nor can i screen these listings here - they are here for your use as a starting point in your search for a home for yourself. Some of them may be out of business, in bankruptcy, or having financial difficulty, or God only knows what kind of problems they could be having. Please try to go to great lengths to protect yourself - They do!
