Get your June issue of Log Home Living and find the best places to build

Many dreams of a log-home future come to a head in the summertime, when the draw of backyard barbecues and lakefront lounging are at their strongest. The latest issue of Log Home Living, new on newsstands this week, shows you some of the best places to build in America. Want a taste? Here's an excerpt from "Hidden Charms: 6 oft-overlooked places to build your log home":


"America is blessed with abundant land that's ideal for log homes. If you're still looking for some scenic site to build yours, here are a few out-of-the-way gems. They’re no strangers to log homes, possibly because the folks who do live there know a good thing when they see it.


You’re also likely to find people there who sell, build, furnish and finance log homes. And restore and maintain them, if you’re hoping to buy an existing log home. Buying an existing home isn’t a bad strategy. Plenty have been built in the past 30 years, including in these six counties, and some have the added advantage of sitting on choicer sites than might be available now.


For new log homes, raw land is available in all six locations, offering the opportunity to customize the home and the site to your liking.


It all begins with finding the right place.

Here are some general features of the six overlooked log-home locations. Land prices tend to be favorable, but they vary greatly, even within one county. If you can’t find anything you want to buy in your favorite, but some land comes close, investigate neighboring counties. You might discover similar landscapes more like what you’re looking for, probably for not much more money."

"The Dog Ate My Log Home Living."


Yes, it's true.  While my son's been at an Army training school, we've been taking care of his sometimes mischievous puppy.  I had only had a chance to briefly flip through the pages, leaving it on the coffee table to come back to after I returned from work.  You guessed it; The Evil One ate . . . well, actually shredded . . . it before I got a chance to read it in depth.


Luckily, the most recent issue of Country's Best Cabins has arrived, assuaging my angst.
