Log Homes Made Easy: Contracting and Building Your Own Log Home

By Jim Cooper
Log Homes Made Easy coverList Price: $11.53

Paperback - 256 pages (April 1993)
Usually ships within 24 hours.

Editorial Review: The author, Jim Cooper , March 4, 1997
A log home book for the rest of us. Most books on building log homes start with how to cut down a tree. They also talk about how inexpensive log homes are. My book does neither. I wrote Log Homes Made Easy to answer the questions of people who are looking for a modern log home. People who don't need to know how to sharpen a chainsaw or cut a notch, but, how to compare the "kits" offered by various manufacturers, how to find subcontractors, prepare a budget and get financing. In Log Homes Made Easy, I follow the entire process, step-by-step, beginning with evaluating land through designing, budgeting, financing and building. The text is supported by a number of forms that I developed for use when I was general contracting log homes. I intended for Log Homes Made Easy to be a handbook to get people through the complex and sometimes confusing process of building a modern log home.
