Simply put, no. Log homes are no harder to build than conventionally framed homes. While this is in large part only based on opinion, and builders do need a different skill set and knowledge of log homes, they are no more difficult to construct. After a short training period on our homes, it is just as easy as it is to build conventional homes.
With the proper training, almost all of the builders we have brought into our facilities have quickly picked up the necessary information to allow for proper construction techniques needed to build our log homes.
