Log Homes Beat Mortgages


SEATTLE, WA, June 28, 2010 -- Log homes might help fix the real estate market, according the Log Home Builders Association, whose headquarters in located just outside Seattle, Washington.

Many potential home buyers these days are struggling with trying to obtain financing in the current economy. Others are facing foreclosure on their existing homes. Both might be served by building their own log homes from scratch without a kit, and doing it for the lowest possible price to avoid a mortgage.

“While commercial builders typically buy everything new,” said Steve White, a Director of the Log Home Builders Association, ”an owner-builder might opt to use reclaimed lumber, recycled windows and doors, and install used appliances. This can save lots of money in the overall cost of a finished home.”

And with no mortgage, there’s no worry about future foreclosure. “It was important to us that we build our house without a mortgage,” said Mary Claire, a member of the Association. "My husband and I worked on the house when we had money and finished it in about six months without a bank loan. No one can take it away from us.”

The Log Home Builders Association offers a 2-day class on how to build log homes from scratch. The next class will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 4th and 5th, 2010. Registration is currently open at the Association’s website,
