Find out how

Forget the kit

Log home kits are expensive and suffer from design flaws that cause maintenance issues later on. LHBA members build low-maintenance log homes that last a lifetime and can be passed on to future generations. Our members build with the trees they have on site, or logs they get locally for free (or inexpensively).

Do it mortgage-free

LHBA members routinely build houses that meet code for surprisingly low costs by using surplus materials, getting free logs from government forests and private landowners, by doing things themselves and by recycling used materials. Our members have built 3 bedroom log homes for as low as $25,000.

No experience necessary

LHBA members are owner-builders with a passion for building their own log home. Even if you are just starting out, you probably already have all the skills you need to build your home. Our step-by-step videos and support will help you the rest of the way.

Recession proof

The best way to survive a recession is to not have a mortgage payment. It frees up huge chunks of your family's budget to spend on other important expenses. And it makes you more resilient when facing job or housing insecurity.

"We are now mortgage free!!!"

"Building this house has been the time of our life!! We would really like to thank LHBA for all that they did to help us achieve this amazing feat...

We are now mortgage free!!! Wow what a feeling. I never imagined that it could be done the way we did it, Mortgage free that is... 2 years ago when we sat in that classroom I never even thought that 2 years later I would be typing this in my beautiful mortgage free home...

Thank you LHBA!!!"

"I had never picked up a hammer before I took the LHBA class. Then I built this log home myself."
