    Be sure and check really carefully what is included alot of these kits advertise a price that is cheaper or the same price as a standard frame house the same size but they don't include a slab or pier and beam floor or the electical and plumbing. I don't have one but i have heard that they take more maintenence than a regular house. If you just like the looks of logs you can get log siding that looks like the real thing.

    Mike is right on about what he posted and unless your planning on taking alot of time off work to build it your self it's not worth it, My boss build one and said never again ...wolud of been cheaper to have a small custom home built.
