Log Home Shows & Expos

I heard from two friends over the weekend who were exhibiting at the Log Home and Timber Frame Expo in Chicago and I realized I hadn’t discussed these events for quite a while.  Oops… sorry, but if you are considering building a log home, attending such a show is a ‘must attend’ event.  Fall and springtime are two of the busiest seasons of the year for log home companies because this is the time they show their wares to prospective buyers.  Log home shows are now happening all over the USA and Canada, and will continue through November. 

Attend a log home show

After the holidays, the pace will pick up in February and run through May.  There are seven or eight major shows remaining for this year and to see where and when these shows will be held, visit the ‘Events’ section of the Log Home Directory

If you are even remotely curious about building a log home or just want to get a feel for what is available, the best part about attending such a show is that everything and almost everybody is under one roof.  You’ll have the opportunity to meet international manufacturers, local home builders and companies that supply all the products that go into a log or timber frame home.

This is where you can get your questions answered and be able to compare companies and building methods first hand.  You can browse and compare log home floor plans and custom home designs, collect brochures and even talk prices and financing.  Possibly the greatest benefit is having the opportunity to speak to industry experts and company representatives in person.

So….. bookmark this blog (you’ll want to come back here after you attend your first show), then make plans to attend a log home expo near you.  Also be sure to read my report, “What to expect at a log and timber home show“. 

Another resource to check for other local events is LogHomeU.com, the community site from Log Home Living and Log Home Design magazines.
