BYO is one of the biggest revolutionary ideas in log building to date. It is a concept I started after the last LBANZ log home building course. The BYO concept give those of us (and I was one) who wish to build their own log home the ability to do so, better, faster, more efficiently and without fault.
I have priced hundreds of log homes for folk who simply can’t afford them, building costs are very high. Every year I teach a log building course, and I’m encouraged and humbled, by the number of folk who are determined and driven to get their own log home any way they can. Only a small percentage of my students may go off and build their own log home on their property because the fact of going it alone, ordering logs, purchasing all manner of tools and equipment from overseas is overwhelming with the sheer size and logistics of the project.
But now with BYO, you can build your own log home. The way this works is you build your log home right here at our log building facility at Natural Log Homes. You use our gear; our expertise and you can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
We have been building log homes for 30 years and we are the biggest log home company in the Southern Hemisphere. You can work alongside our professional builders to build your own log home, we will show you how. BYO gives you all the hands-on experience, without the worry or the thought of doing the wrong thing that can be costly in a log home.
We have the technical know-how, sure a 14-day log building course gives you the knowledge to cut and scribe and fit naturally shaped logs together, but that alone, does not make you a proficient log builder. (A carpentry trade apprenticeship used to take 4 years to complete)
Myself and my NLH staff are right here in the yard with you to help with questions that often pop up during construction. Issues such as log selection (nearly a trade on its own) managing wall heights, floor joists logs, roof logs, tricky log trigonometry, log header and window sill lay out can be challenging for novices.
I wish BYO was available to me when I built my own log home. I certainly would have jumped in head first.
“My latest method BYO is more for the owner builder who wants to build their own log home, as much as they can, we know you are out there because you come on the many log building courses run around the world.”
