Since a log cabin is usually a custom designed home, selling a log cabin can be somewhat challenging. If you are building a log cabin for resale, you may wish to discuss this with a real estate agent before deciding if a log cabin is right for your needs.
Once you decide that you wish to have your own log cabin, the first step is to start the research. It is very important to look into not only the cabin, but all aspects of the construction from land clearing through to building. Depending on where you are building your cabin these costs can be minimal or they can be very high.
