Follow the progress of a 3000 square foot log home being built by one family that are doing it all themselves. From felling the trees and peeling them right on through all the rest. Brian tells us they will probably spend only 65 thousand dollars by doing all the work themselves using the trees from their property.
After seeing this post DIY Project How We Built Our Own Home From Scratch, he thought some folks may be interested in how his family are building their own log home. He says. “I attended a 2 day class hosted by the Log Home Builders Association (LHBA) back in February 2016. I’ve been looking into various log home building organizations for the past 15 years. I settled on LHBA because of the simplicity of the method, the great online support forums, and the lifetime membership offered for only $800 (the price of taking the 2-day class).
This method of building uses the “butt and pass” method for building a log home, perfected by Skip Ellsworth back in the 60’s.
