My name is Jason and I built a log home in 2002. I grew up in a dove tail log home that my dad disassembled and rebuilt. Its estimated age is close to 200 years old now. The logs are hand hewn chestnut. I love log houses and I am at a strange point with the house I live in now. It is a dream home that I worked my fingers to the bone on. I have worked extra jobs to have this dream home. I love this house made out of red pine. I bought it from a dealer but I have had some issues. Thanks for allowing me to be part of this site. I am here to learn more about the situation I am in.
Geoff here. I'm 4 years into my first log home ownership experience. All I can say about it is that at this point I consider myself an expert at what NOT to do with your log home. Fortunately the log gods have given me yet another chance on fixing this beast up. Here to learn first and foremost and perhaps along the way I can save someone from having one of those DOH! moments that I've had a few to many of (Home Depot is a FOOLS PARADISE people!).
Hello! First time jumping on this forum and almost a year into owning my first log home. After using forums to learn so many different things over the years I try to give back when possible. Even though I have yet to be in my house for a year, I'm almost done restoring the exterior of my 30 year old home through media blasting. It was an ambitious project forsure but the end result has been better than I could have ever dreamed! As I'm finishing this project I am compiling a complete write up including videos to hopefully help anyone looking to take this on themselves.
Looking forward to learning and contributing in the future!
Hello all, log home newbie here. Just moved into my first log home; it is a 10 year old kit.

Hi, my name is Mike and my wife and I are finally embarking on our dream to build our retirement log home. We purchase a lot of 6 acres in Meigs County TN and this year we signed a contract with the Original Log Homes of NC for the log home kit.
We are looking for a local builder to help with the project but dont know where to start looking. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
did you find a builder for your home yet? i might be able to help.

Hello to all ! My name is Mark and my wife Nancy are currently in the process of selecting a Log home company. We are located in the Lakes region of New Hampshire and already own our land on the Lake. We are having the land cleared as we speak and the road and Approved Septic System will be going in shortly. I would like to ask out there if anyone has Built or purchased there home from KATAHDIN Cedar Log Homes from Maine. Nancy and i have picked out the Lake view floor plan as it fits our needs and the model home we toured was very nice. Any and all information regarding Katahdin would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in Advance
