For anyone who is serious about building their own log cabin, the best place to learn the unique skills involved would be at a log home building school. Each of the cabin building classes offers a different perspective on cabin construction techniques, whether it’s using assembling a cabin kit using milled logs or erecting a handcrafted log home from your own trees.

Download a free PDF called the "Alaska Log Building Construction Guide". Written for log home builders and contractors to assist in building quality, energy-efficient log structures in the harsh environment of Alaska, it's packed with information useful for anybody interested in building their own cabin.

Read about log home design and construction in the many books available. We recommend some of the best in our Virtual Library, along with current log home living magazines to spark your imagination and inspire your own rustic décor.

We also have a new section covering cabin book reviews of some of the best log home books so you can get a preview. As examples, check out our new book reviews: 

We encourage you to submit your own book reviews and share your knowledge.
