We are nearing retirement, and anxious to find just the right spot to build our log home dream. We are lifelong New Englanders, but would consider New York and states to the south, but probably not…Continue

Hi Lynn, It is obvious that you intend to live in the north east. Katahdin Cedar Log Homes is in Oakfield Maine and can give you excellent service. They've been there for 40 years and they know how to design log homes for that climate. Jim and Pam Harbin

Hello Lynn, Go on usaloghomes.com and learn all about cedar. Katahdin Cedar Log Homes will match any written quote and do it in cedar. Tell them Jim and Pam sent you.

well, i thought we would downsize, as my oldest has joined the army and the middle child graduates next year. However, the more plans we look at the bigger the house my husband wants. Besides, it will be nice to have rooms to accommodate the kids and grandkids on holidays and vacations. We are probably talking 3000sf plus a walkout basement with a shop at this point.

You have less maintenance in terms of treating the logs for insects and won't need to be stained as often. There is not difference in choices for stains just that wood type affects the appearance of the stain depending on the species. There are some rural towns in RI, but the price of land is usually the killer.

We'll be at the CT Home Show at the Expo Center in Hartford, November 6-8th. If you want to stop by we'll have log samples with us.

I hear that alot. But I'm curious to hear why you say you can't afford cedar? We sell both pine and cedar. The cedar on average only runs about 4% more but that is usually made up with not having to treat the logs and less maintenance overall.

I'm in Woodstock over in the Eastern corner. Yes, I'm a dealer/builder for Moosehead Cedar Log Homes. Is it the bolt down system you like? That is usually only done on pine logs because of the high shrinkage. Cedar logs don't need that.
