Hi everyone! Greetings from DIY farm couple in central Illinois. Researching log home construction - have been working on our floor plan for ~2 yrs now and are seriously considering a kit home (until I blundered across this site!!!) NOT dealing with a 30 yr mortgage is very appealing! Wondering if there would be any LHBA member/builders in the St Louis/Springfield IL area that are under construction. What I have read so far makes complete sense, although the chinking look isn't a favorite, sometimes you've gotta take form over function!

Great info on this site!!!!
