  1. Hi Rowena,
    It generally takes six to eight weeks for the first issue of a new subscription to arrive. If it doesn’t show up by the first week of August, go to or call 800-234-8496. Best of luck!

  2. Bought a log home featured in August 2001 issue.
    How can I get a copy?

    Steve SparkmanOctober 2, 2013 @ 7:44 pmReply
    • Steve:

      Thank you for your note regarding obtaining a copy of August 2001. Unfortunately, we no longer sell back issues and are unable to assist. Your best bet may be to comb or to see if either major retailer has one available.

      Sorry we could not be of help.

  3. I’ve left other “reply” messages but they’re not answered, just eliminated from this site. According to my records and the “renewal” form you send me, my subscription isn’t due to run out until Feb. 2014. I’m being billed now for a renewal with the warning that I’ve received my last issue – WHY! An answer would be nice.

    • David: Sorry for our delay in getting back to you. You didn’t indicate which of our magazines you are referring to – Country’s Best Cabins or Log Home Living – but the renewal notice is likely to prevent any interruption in service. We’re in the process of working on our January/February issues for each magazine now, so depending on what has been indicated on your service card (i.e., if your subscription expires on calendar date February 2014 or with the February 2014 issue), you could be coming up on your last issue shortly.

      We hope that information helps.

      • We would like to get pdf copies of pages 26 through 35, on Heavenly Hybrid, Maple Island Log Homes, in the April 2013 Home Log Living magazine. Is this available?

        Sarah WojciechowskiOctober 29, 2013 @ 8:49 pmReply
        • Hi Sarah: Unfortunately, we aren’t able to give out PDF’s of articles for copyright reasons. It actually violates our contracts with both the photographers and the writers, so that’s why it’s not really possible. As a potential alternative for future articles, I might recommend checking out our digital edition here: Thanks, and sorry about that.

  4. In the Dec. 2013 issue of LHL on page 31, I noticed
    That a photo of our Great Room was featured.
    We were awarded log home design of the year in 2007 by Log Home Design Mag.
    Do you ever have any inquiries as to where the home is located and the home owners info?
    We are dealers for Log Home Outfitters and will take calls from interested party’s. So. In. dealer

  8. I’ve just noticed that I haven’t received a copy of Log Home Living for some time. I know I have paid for a renewal, and never received any forms indicating that my renewal was about to expire. Could you please check on this for me?

    Thank you.
