We live in Batesburg, SC and are looking to build our first and most likely last home. We are building on the land that we currently own and live on and it is family land and part of our farm, so it is not likely that it will be sold or we will build again. SO, we are weighing our options very carefully. We know we want a drive under garage and basement foundation. my husband is a brick lover but is open to the idea of a log home if I can prove to him that it will "work" (maintenance, etc.) in this humid climate.

Any thoughts on building a log home from a kit or package as most companies offer? Anyone used a company in SC, GA, or NC that we could look at? We are leaning towards cypress vs. pine. we actually want to purchase a shell basically, and work on the inside as we go. My husband installed floor professionally for a while, and his family has built several shops, decks, etc. with no problem. They have lots of tools and are very handy. SO we are wondering is it crazy to think that we can build our log home ourselves, (actually have the foundation done by a sub, but assemble the logs ourselves and do much of the inside work ourselves.)

We would like to spend less that $175,000, and the log home kits are fairly reasonable for a 2,000-2,200 sq foot home, which is what we are looking at. Most of the packages we are pricing are from $60,000 - $80,000, depending on what is included. We are having a hard time figuring out just how much we can afford, b/c we are being quoted about $100- $150 a sq foot by the log home companies as a finished, builder-built home.

Any suggestions? Any help is greatly appreciated.  aubrey
