Profile Information

Tell us about yourself:
Like most people new to log homes, we're pretty excited about building one in the near future. Might consider a hybrid timber and want to incorporate as much green as possible. This will be a weekend vacation home for extended family and future retirement home. Hope to gather as much information and advise as possible in order to make decisions we won't regret!
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
Not yet, but have almost closed on some land and can then start the planning!
What timeframe are you looking to start your dream home?
12-24 months
