I’m about to list the Top 5 places to build a log home, according to the editors of Log Home Living Magazine (August 2007).
But before we go there, I think we all would agree that there are plenty of other locations that should’ve made the list… but didn’t.
I hope that others who read this will take a second to share their favorite place to build a log home or log cabin in the Comments below.
Now, onto the Top 5…
The editors of Log Home Living Magazine have compiled the following list of “The Best Places To Build (That You’ve Never Heard Of)“:
Apparently, Coeur D’Alene, Idaho appeared somewhere else on the list. (I haven’t read this issue of Log Home Living yet… but it’s definitely one of my favorites!)
And, on a related note…here are the most ideal areas for sites on which to build a vacation log home (according to The Log & Timber Homes Network).
Log Home Living magazine has updated the list for 2008! It now features “The 20 Best Places To Build A Home In America“. They are:
- Red Lodge, Montana
- Sault Ste Marie, Michigan
- Bisbee, Arizona
- Cortez, Colorado
- Darvis, West Virginia
- Presque Isle, Maine
- Berea, Kentucky
- Salmon, Idaho
- Aberdeen, Washington
- Black Mountain, North Carolina
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
