Shoot me an e-mail, I have a quick question about one of your posts, it was very informative and I'm wondering if I can link to it in a blog post.

As far as the source for my logs, they were from Frerich's sawmill out of tennessee. They are great folks to deal with and you will not find a better price anywhere on just about anything they carry. Problem is they don't mill any round logs I don't think. Just shiplap and D logs. If they dont have what you need, I will reccommend that you do not go to Tennessee Heritage Log homes. They are supposively a direct source for logs but they are not. I lost a lot of money through them after going with them and finding out they put their names on the logs from Frerich's sawmill or wherever they could get the logs you wanted. They were horrible to deal with and charged almost double what I could get from the sawmill direct. Good luck. It can be a difficult process but is well worth it in the end. I assume that if you are doing round logs then you want pre-cut corners. Going this route will definitely drive the price up substantially. The best resources I have found for these tyoe of mills are out of Log Home Design mag. or similar logs home mags in the log supplier section on the back. Try to find any reviews before you go with a suplier if possible. They are very hard to find though, as I found none on my original supplier.
