We discuss design trends, frequently asked consumer questions, budget challenges and more with a 35-year log-industry veteran

When prospective cabin and log-home owners first begin to look at all the options available to them, it can be a little daunting. To start, it’s a custom building project, which is very different from the standard home purchase to which most people are accustomed. Logs are also a different building product than most homeowners are accustomed to in terms of construction technique and design aesthetic — which, of course, is part of the draw of building with them in the first place. We asked 35-year industry veteran Donald Parsons of Appalachian Log Structures to share his observations on design trends, frequently asked questions, budget challenges and more.
