This July marks the eighth annual National Log Homes Open House Month, celebrating the heritage of log-home building.
NAHB Log and Timber Homes Council members and builders across the nation observe the event throughout the month with home tours, log-raising demonstrations, mill tours, seminars and more to educate consumers on this unique building system.
This year, consumers will have an opportunity to learn more about log-home building directly from the council chair. Ken Sekley, president of Southland Log Homes, will host a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything)
on Tuesday, July 16, at 3 p.m. ET to answer any and all questions about buying and building a log home.

Example topics might include information about optimal types of of wood species to build with, what’s included in a log home kit or package, log home maintenance, energy efficiency and sustainability benefits of log homes, and how long it typically takes to build a log home.
