According to North Eastern Log Homes, which sells log home building kits, many people are interested in building homes similar to the style of Lincolns.
Spokesman Dick Pirozzolo says they sell The Traditional series of log cabins that measure 22-feet by 30-feet and are priced at around $100,000.
Pirozzolo says when they reintroduced the cabins it was considered to be almost heresy in the log home building community. But the homes have become popular.
He says theyre typically bought by Baby Boomers whose kids have left home and they want a smaller home. Theyre also bought by people just starting out in life.
Of course, you dont live with a dirt floor. They come with modern conveniences; cost less to heat and cool than other homes; and home owners pay less taxes on them.
