THE COVER OF THE 2018 Log Home Liv­ing An­nual Buyer’s Guide

de­clares that you’ve found “Your Ul­ti­mate Guide” to help you plan, de­sign and build your dream home, and it’s true: For over three decades, peo­ple have turned to Log Home Liv­ing to help them plan and build their log homes. But just be­cause this is­sue has the info you need, doesn’t mean there isn’t more. Out­side of these pages (whether you’re read­ing our print or dig­i­tal edi­tions), we of­fer ad­di­tional re­sources, both live and vir­tual.

For starters, at­tend one of our Log & Tim­ber Home Shows and/or the Log & Tim­ber Univer­sity, where you can meet the peo­ple who ac­tu­ally de­sign, man­u­fac­ture and build the most amaz­ing log homes you’ve ever seen and ask them ques­tions about your fu­ture log home plans. These trav­el­ing two- to three-day events are held across the United States and of­fer a rare op­por­tu­nity to visit scores of in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, from log home pro­duc­ers to fur­ni­ture mak­ers, all un­der one roof. Free work­shops at each show help make you an in­formed and ed­u­cated buyer. (See page 126, or visit the lo­gand­tim­ber­show.com for dates and lo­ca­tions.)

Can’t make it to a show? You can al­ways go dig­i­tal. But search the in­ter­net for terms like “log homes” or “log cabin” and you’ll wind up with mil­lions of re­sults. In­deed, the in­ter­net can be as much of a curse as it is a bless­ing, so stick with the sources you can trust, like the new-and-im­proved loghome.com and The Log Home Neigh­bor­hood at loghomeu.com. Then, en­gage with other en­thu­si­asts on our Face­book, Twit­ter, In­sta­gram and Pin­ter­est pages (see page 6 for di­rect links to these sites). And don’t for­get to sign up for Ed­i­tor Donna Peak’s weekly news­let­ter, Log Home

Liv­ing Weekly, at loghome.com/ news­let­ters.

Com­bined, these re­sources bring you the most cur­rent, rel­e­vant con­tent in in­spir­ing and truly fun for­mats. Join hun­dreds of thou­sands of log home en­thu­si­asts just like you and be­come part of the Log Home Liv­ing fam­ily.

From fi­nanc­ing tips to de­sign and con­struc­tion ad­vice to up­keep, our 2018 An­nual Buyer’s Guide is brim­ming with use­ful in­for­ma­tion to help you achieve your goals. And once you do, we’ll share de­signer tricks of the trade to out­fit­ting it suc­cess­fully and com­fort­ably with our brand new fur­nish­ing sec­tion!

Whether they are tricked out with tech­nol­ogy or not, log homes re­main the most or­ganic, hand­crafted and true-to-na­ture type of hous­ing there is. When prop­erly built, they’re strong, adapt­able, en­ergy-ef­fi­cient and un­be­liev­ably beau­ti­ful. Each one is as per­sonal and unique as the peo­ple who own them. Which one will be yours?

Af­ter a childhood spent en­joy­ing sum­mers at her fam­ily’s river­side cabin in western Penn­syl­va­nia, Donna Peak has been a log home in­dus­try pro­fes­sional for 18 years. She thinks there’s no other type of home on the planet that can com­pare to the beauty and au­then­tic­ity of a log home.

Per­haps it’s the tech­nol­ogy and au­to­ma­tion per­me­at­ing our lives that’s fu­el­ing our de­sire to get in touch with what’s real. To re­con­nect with na­ture. To cre­ate a haven where pri­vacy still reigns supreme. To live in a log home.
