What insurance companies are folks using for their log homes?My agent informed me yesterday that Traveler's, who I've used for three years, is changing their coverages and specifically lists "Log Homes" as a non-coverable item.

Beautiful home! Love the tongue & wood interior! Also looks like you're on a nice lake. We have a walk-out basement too. I like how you did your walk-out w/ the cement patio.
