1. The tiny log home is adorable and cute, but it’s just too small and would require a fair amount of “upgrades” if we were to be happy there long-term. As is, it seems more like a fun rental cabin in the woods than an actual residence to us.
2. The huge log home has a ton of personality and character, and a very rich history which would be fun to hold onto, but we’d get lost in the many rooms inside that place — we’d never find each other! Plus, it needs a new roof, and some windows, and looks like it might have some wiring issues. We’re afraid there might be a whole host of other things that could go wrong with this particular home. And we certainly don’t want to buy into someone else’s problems.
However… we are completely impressed with the concept of living in a log home though.
I just think it’s funny that the first two homes we looked at just so happened to both be log homes!
Anyway, that’s definitely an avenue we’re interested in pursuing.
I guess we’ve just never thought about log homes as an option up until this point.
More of our initial thoughts about moving here.
We’ve gone through the entire process of designing and planning every single detail of our dream log home! We have the blueprints… and the land… and the contractor… and the goal for our log cabin home to be our retirement home. Before you build (or buy) a log home, I have a slew of helpful tips for you — to plan, design, build, decorate, and maintain your very own rustic modern log home. When I’m not fine-tuning the log home of my dreams, you’ll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I’ve written nearly 300 articles for current and future log home owners on this site! Many of them have over 50K shares.
