Building your own log home can be a daunting process, especially when you don’t know anyone who has already built their own log home. Whether you are using a self-build kit or building the cabin from scratch, there are many pitfalls that can occur along the way.
I remember when I built my first log home- it was such an amazing experience and I wouldn’t change it, but I made a lot of stupid mistakes along the way. These mistakes cost me money but more importantly these mistakes cost me time.
I imagine you’re reading this article because you’re interested in building your own log home and let me tell you… do it, you won’t regret it!
So I know exactly what it’s like to start your log home project and not know where to start, so I decided I would help people out. I decided to get in touch with 21 Log Cabin Builders to find out what exactly they would recommend to beginners and would-be log home builders. The tips they shared with me are absolutely invaluable and how I wish I’d have read them before I built my own home… From which types of logs to build with all the way through to whether to use a log home kit or not- the information is all in there. You can find a complete list of all the tips over at 21 Log Cabin Builders Share Their Advice.
I truly hope this advice helps get you started and more importantly helps you to avoid some of the mistakes I made when I built my own log home.
