Big Beautiful Log Homes...vs...Small Beautiful Log Homes

I can't help but notice that most pictures of logs homes that I have come across are those of the very large, very beautifal homes. Our home is not large, but, very cozy and warm. I don't see many homes of that size in the magazines. Maybe I am just not looking in the right places.

Not to be too critical but I don't consider a 2300+ square foot home 'small'!

Hi Cheryl,
Keep an eye out for the upcoming July/August issue of Country's Best Log Homes, which will be hitting newsstands on June 29. We're featuring three gorgeous homes: a cute log cottage in Michigan at 2,363 square feet, a more modern log home with timber accents in Oregon at 3,352 square feet and an absolutely stunning cabin in Idaho that clocks in at 2,243 square feet.

We're always looking for new homes to feature, so if you'd like us to consider yours, please send us 15-20 snapshots that show all the major rooms in your home plus a few exterior shots from different angles and any detail shots that help make your home unique. Also, I'll need your name and contact info, the location of your home, your log provider, the name and contact information for the person you primarily worked with at the log company and your home's square footage. Also, any interesting details about the home that might make a good story line will also be appreciated.

Submissions can come to me at or by snail mail at:

Home Buyer Publications

Unfortunately, we can't feature every submission we receive, but if you think your home would be an asset to one of our magazines, we'd love to hear from you!

Country's Best Log Homes generally features smaller homes than Log Home Living and tips for making the most out of smaller spaces. We also recently released Dream Cabin Showcase, a special issue that also focuses on homes of more realistic sizes.

Cheryl: Keep looking! Every once in a while the magazines will do a whole issue on smaller square footage log homes as wells log home using a 6 or 8 inch thick log. Occasionally they will feature a smaller log home in with the others. If you house is "magazine feature" material, take some photos and send them to the magazines. Enclose a letter stating that you would like to see some home similar to your featured and offer yours to be photographed to be used in an upcoming issue. Cheers - Donald

Those with the large and flashy homes do like to preen, whether the houses are made of logs or another material. The same is true for car owners, boat owners, teenagers with tennis shoes, and most anything else you can imagine. The rest of us just try to live comfortably with what we have. My log home is not an architectural statement, and I often live in dread that it will some day collapse. But it is what I have, and it will do. It is more important how one lives than what one lives in.
