How many here have ever attempted to do it the old fashioned way? Hubby and I were chewing aroudn with the idear since we are looking for acerage. If we had enough timber on the acerage we might consider doign this if it woudn't take forever. My fil lives in one thats probably close to 200 years old and swears by them. Hes got the log house covered on the outside and a tin roof with sheetrock and paneling inside. So...wondergin if anyone did thier own place with the thick ole fashioned logs of bygone not the generic smaller ones the builders use Please share!
