Here are the most important things to consider when building a cedar log home.
The perfect piece of property does not exist for the most part. You may have to make some compromises when searching for property depending on where you are looking to build your log home. Although it may seem like a dauting task, finding property can be accomplished as long as you remain focused and put in the effort necessary. Working with a local real estate agent who specializes in land will be more helpful than one who is more familiar with working with exising homes. Simply search around online and look for such an agent. Also, the Internet can become a great resource for locating potential home sites. Use real esate websites as well as those who promote land for sale by owner's like Craig's List. You just might might that "perfect piece of property if you search all available outlets. Don't forget to tell family and friends about your land search. They very well may know someone that is considering selling a piece of property that is perfect for you. You may be able to get the inside track before the property is even listed. Don't get discouraged...you will find the property of your dreams with some effort.
