The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

So you're new to the whole world of log and timber homes, and you're starting absolutely from scratch. You probably have a lot of questions (like, say, what's the difference between a log home and a timber home?), but you may feel they're too basic to ask. Or you may be so overwhelmed that you don't even know where to begin.

Never fear — we've got your back. The 2012 Log & Timber Home Workbook just hit newsstands today, and it breaks everything down for even the most novice of interested log- or timber-home owners. Inside you'll find:

- a detailed explanation of the similarities and differences between log and timber homes, and practical information that can help you decide what's right for you

- a guide to log and timber home shows — what they are, how to prepare to attend one, who to meet and what questions to ask (click here for a schedule of upcoming shows)

- more than 50 of the most-asked questions from potential log-home owners and detailed answers that remove the guesswork (What should I look for in a building site? Isn't fire a threat? How can I cut costs during the building process? What kind of maintenance is involved?)

- advice on selecting the different members of your log or timber home's design and building team

- a breakdown of the different components used in timber-frame construction

- an overview of what you can (and can't) expect to find in your log-home package

- an explanation of the two types of loans required to build a custom log or timber home

- advice on where to find good land and what you need to know before you buy

- tips on planning a custom floor plan or modifying a stock one to fit your needs

and more!
