Product description

Synopsis

This book outlines what every owner-contractor needs to know before beginning a dream log home -- getting started; comparing price quotes; researching on the Internet; choosing an architect; planning the site, road, well, and septic systems; finding and managing subcontractors; and scheduling and controlling costs. The author also explores the myths and realities of log home life, including maintenance and energy efficiency.

From the Author

A log home book for the rest of us.
Most books on building log homes start with how to cut down a tree. They also talk about how inexpensive log homes are. My book does neither. I wrote Log Homes Made Easy to answer the questions of people who are looking for a modern log home. People who don't need to know how to sharpen a chainsaw or cut a notch, but, how to compare the "kits" offered by various manufacturers, how to find subcontractors, prepare a budget and get financing. In Log Homes Made Easy, I follow the entire process, step-by-step, beginning with evaluating land through designing, budgeting, financing and building. The text is supported by a number of forms that I developed for use when I was general contracting log homes. I intended for Log Homes Made Easy to be a handbook to get people through the complex and sometimes confusing process of building a modern log home. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
