Log Homes, June Brides and Other Musings…

June is a very important month of the year. For most parts of the country summer is in full swing, but here in Montana we haven’t really seen any summer weather yet. As I write this it is 50 degrees and raining and the week ahead forecast doesn’t look any more exciting.

Thought about building a log home?

No, that’s not what I meant. Have you ever thought about YOU building YOUR log home? I’m talking about you wielding the chainsaw, peeling your own logs and stacking logs – not hiring a builder to do it for you. I’m talking serious hands-on DIY log home building!

Many of us have considered such a […]

Does your log home have a name?

What’s your sign?

No, I’m not talking about your Astrological sign (I’m a Scorpio), I’m referring to the name you have given to your log home or cabin. Have you posted a sign to prove it?

2011 is the Year of the Log Home

I don’t think that my last post, “Is the Log Home Industry Growing?” and a “Google Alert” I received earlier today is purely a coincidence. I believe we’re seeing a very positive trend developing. I closely monitor traffic activity to this blog and to my website, Log Home Directory, and I have Google Analytics send […]

Guilty as charged, Robert. Sorry you couldn’t find the information you were looking for and that’s probably because I’ve […]

Log Homes Were Made for Snow

Montana winters are always unpredictable. A few years ago we didn’t receive any snow until Christmas day and other years we’ve had action as early as September. This year winter arrived with a vengeance. It has been snowing for two weeks and last week we had 4-5 days of sub-zero temps (-12 one day).

10/10/10 Log Home Legacy

10/10/10, Sunday, October 10, 2010

Additionally, it seems that nothing significant […]
