I too am interested in building a single story log (or frame) home. My reasons are purely financial. I had the perfect log home plan with the perfect loft and upstairs bedroom and bath but when I sent it out for bids the numbers came in so high that I had to abandon that idea.

I'm hoping that that is just a myth.
