Consumer Publication Explains Ins and Outs of Building and Buying Log Homes
A free publication from the NAHB Log Home Council is geared to helping consumers buy, build and maintain log homes. Included is information on the merits of different wood species, the intricacies of construction-to-permanent mortgages, the energy properties of log homes and code requirements.
The 18-page, color publication gives home buyers and log home enthusiasts a brief history of the industry and highlights do-it-yourself advice, energy efficiency and financing options for modern log homes.
A free copy of “The Log Home: An American Dream” is available by calling the NAHB Log Home Council at 800-368-5242 x8576. The publication can also be purchased in bulk quantities.
“Log homes are a unique part of the home building industry both in terms of aesthetics and logistics,” said Rich Horn, 2004 president of the NAHB Log Homes Council. “The Log Homes Council has always sought to educate consumers and make the path to log homeownership more navigable.”
