The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

Summer is almost here, and the living is...well, not so easy, right?

Those ominous economic indicators that the media speaks of have most of us trembling in our proverbial boots. We are afraid to buy an expensive dinner, much less a new home. But as a I wrote in the June issue (hitting newsstands next week), there's never been a better time to buy. That is, if you're in a position to buy.

I'm lucky enough to chat with lots of builders, financial pros and, yeah, readers, who've said the mortgage crises has driven away clients (in the case of builders and mortgage companies) and messed with their resolve (readers).

But, like every other crisis of economic faith, this mess will pass. People are going to buy homes and fulfill long-standing dreams.

It's not a matter of's when. I'm just happy I'll be around to help my readers make the right choices...

Michael, I couldn't agree with you more. Last January I wrote a guest article for Jim Young's blog, The Log Home Advisor where I made the case that "there has not been a better time in years to build your log home". If we would just listen to our hearts instead of the talking heads on TV, these economic cycles wouldn't affect most of us nearly as much as we permit them to affect us. Good points!
