Log Homes & Log Cabins FOR SALE

I closely monitor traffic activity to this blog and to my website, Log Home Directory, and I have Google Analytics send […]

Log Cabin in a KY Barn

Not a week goes by that I don’t hear from someone having a special request outside of the regular business of this blog. I’ve had people ask where they could find unique products, how to build a primitive log cabin, and even how to dismantle a log home.
