Their advice: “Make sure you find a quality log manufacturer that will work with you and understand how to make the impossible, possible,” says Tom. “The company should have engineering capability to do more than just sell you a package. Log-company reps visited our job site with their field technicians and showed our carpenters tricks to install their product. The company also worked closely with our local engineers when we had challenges. Also, be patient. It’s exciting to finally build the house you always dreamed about, but remember that it takes three times longer to build a log home than something stick-built. There are things unique to a log home that, if they aren’t done correctly the first time, will haunt you for years—these include things like flashing and overhangs.”
