Anyone local have experience with a log home?
We're currently looking at a log home that's for sale in the B'ham area, and was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with one, or possibly knows someone who has one.
I'm already aware of the fact that they're a little harder to finance, cost more to insure....but what I'm most concerned with is the maintenance. Is it a never ending project to keep up with all the chinking, caulking, staining?
And are they as energy efficient as the log home companies claim?
Tell me whatever you've heard...good or bad. Any info will be appreciated.
