If you’ve decided to act on your dream of owning a log home, and want to buy a classic home that’s been around a while, it’s important to look beyond the dream and beneath the surface to know if it’s the right choice for you. A professional home inspector is always a good idea, and you should always try to find one with experience in log homes. Not all inspectors have the experience needed for examining log structures, and it takes someone with this type of expertise to recognize problems and recommend the correct way to address them.
If you’re shopping for your dream log home, and considering purchasing an older structure that has caught your eye, here is a checklist of things you should know (and your inspector should thoroughly check out).
Log homes can last for generations if they have been properly maintained and cared for. If you are looking at log homes, be sure to start with this checklist then enlist the help of a trained and experienced log home professional before deciding on investing in that log home or cabin you’ve been eyeing for your future.
