Before you can build, you need to have land. Many future log-home owners already have that aspect of the planning covered, whether they inherited family-held land or bought their property specifically for their log home. Others may not have bought their property yet, but they know exactly where they want to build, perhaps along a picturesque lake or near their family's favorite ski resort. Still others know they want a log home and may have an idea in mind of what their perfect site would look like, but they just haven't found that special spot quite yet.
If you're still looking for the right place to build, you won't want to miss the May issue of Log Home Living, which hits newsstands this week.
