If a log cabin is something you've always dreamed of, there are several ways you can go about achieving this. To start, you will need to plan out the details for your log cabin to include budget, house site, and log cabin design. Whether you choose to build the cabin building yourself, buy a log cabin kit, or hire contractors will depend on several factors. Building a log cabin yourself will be one of the biggest projects you will take on, but is sure also to be one of the most gratifying once the home is complete.

Once you have your building site, you'll need to select your logs and transport the logs to your building site. The type of logs that you use will depend upon what is available locally, your personal preferences, and your log cabin budget. Many people choose the logs that they can get cheap and local to save on transportation. This is a good idea you can talk to local loggers, land clearing companies, wood mills, and foresters to find out what tree species are plentiful in your area, and choose the log species that suits your log house design.

Each tree species will have pros and cons in regards to its strength, rot resistance, and insulation value, so you'll want to remember to compare those points when choosing your tree species for your log house build. If you want to save money and be kind to the environment, you can also consider building your cabin building with standing dead trees. Standing dead trees make great wood cabin logs, and there is very little commercial demand for them, so this type of wood is often free or very inexpensive. Building with standing dead timber will save you plenty of money, save the trees from being wasted, and save a live green tree from being chopped down for your log cabin.

Depending on the type of logs you use, you will need to treat the logs for your log cabin. Borate wood preservatives are made from naturally occurring minerals that help prevent fungus, rot, and wood-boring insect infestations. Borates are considered to be safe for humans, and they are even used in some laundry detergents to help clean clothes. You can create the logs with a borate solution after peeling and again after the log walls are up. Stain is an optional step in your log house build and can help your logs maintain their color. A wood stain with a UV protectant can help prevent UV rays from turning your logs a greyish color over time.
