Ricky Nail, would be your best bet get in touch with him and go look at some of his work. He is very meticulous and reasonable.

Ricky is who built our home and we love it. He is very meticulous. And I did go over budget. There was no surprises. He has brought several people up to look at it. Would highly recommend him.

My advice? Don't build a log home. Friends of mine did and have regretted it ever since. When the logs dry, they shrink. And leave open seams between the logs. These seams will actually leak water and cold air. And the walls only have an r value of 6. Build a frame home with 2x6 walls and log siding inside and outside. No one will know the difference.

She is right...log siding is cheaper and easier when it comes to repairs!
